What to expect

The arrival of the little wooden huts in the town squares of Alsace’s towns and villages is a major event! The Christmas markets mark the return of time-honored festivities. A world of delicious fragrances, delightful craft goods and lights quickly takes shape along the rows, where some surprising and mouthwatering discoveries await you!

In the morning, depart from Strasbourg and head towards Colmar. Step into this magical setting, amazing Christmas illuminations that blend perfectly with the town’s heritage. The pedestrian city center has major architectural treasures from the Middle Ages to the 19th century, making it feel like a dreamy open-air theatre together with the warm Christmas mood. Enjoy some free time to discover one or several Christmas Markets on your own, as the town holds 5 different markets.

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!
