One of the Best European Christmas Market
Strasbourg Christmas Markets has almost 500 years of tradition, this is one of “the hottest” Christmas markets destination in Europe, and it all started in 1570. At that time, it was called “Christkindelsmärik”.
Since then, the city continued with the tradition, giving its visitors the charm of a warm and authentic place you need to visit during the winter holidays.
This place is even called “Strasbourg, the capital of Christmas”.
