What to expect

In the morning, you'll be picked up at your accommodation by your guide, who will go over the program and itinerary of the day with you. Then, you'll board a comfortable, air conditioned minivan equipped with an on board P/A system that allows you to hear the commentary of your driver/guide no matter where you are seated, and head towards Colmar.

The Christmas markets mark the return of time-honored festivities and Alsace is without a doubt a winter wonderland. A world of delicious fragrances, delightful craft goods and lights quickly takes shape along the rows, where some surprising and mouthwatering discoveries await the markets’ visitors. Christmas in Colmar’s Historical town center means a historic setting made magical by amazing Christmas illuminations that blend perfectly with the wonderful lighting designed to enhance the town’s heritage.

The pedestrian city center with its major architectural treasures that stretch from the Middle Ages to the 19th century is decorated like in a dream, a veritable open-air theater where the warm Christmas mood envelops the heart of the town. Here, follow your guide for a walking tour of the town and to discover one or several Christmas Markets as the town holds 5 different markets. After the walk, enjoy some free time to explore in the different markets and why not taste the local mulled wine?

Then, depart along the famous Alsace Wine Route to pass through some of the most beautiful villages of Alsace. The afternoon program will depend on the date of your tour. Eguisheim, Riquewihr (Medieval market), Colmar and Strasbourg cities host a market every single day. On the 6th, 7th and 8th of December, your stop will certainly include the Christmas Market of Bergheim, on the 7th, 8th, 14th and 15th of December you will have the opportunity to discover Ribeauvillé market, and almost every single day of this festive season, the market of Kaysersberg will be ready to show you all it has to offer, before returning to Strasbourg.
