The Christmas experience in Alsace

An unforgettable Christmas

With sparkling lights, a friendly atmosphere, the gentle fragrance of spices and cinnamon, not to mention the towns and villages putting up their decorations, in Alsace you can experience Christmas like nowhere else. A time for sharing these ancient traditions, Christmas weaves its magic all over Alsace. In addition to keeping the rituals and traditions alive, you can enjoy the simple pleasure of getting together and admiring the splendour of the decorations in a friendly atmosphere, the likes of which you will find nowhere else on earth. From late November onwards, Christmas markets, songs, fairy tales and legends bring the region to life as the finest of the year’s holidays approaches.


Experience the magic in our 7 Lands of Christmas

From the north to the south of the region, Christmas awakens the very soul of Alsace. Throughout the region, in the countryside, towns, streets and homes, people are preparing to celebrate this event with generosity and good humour. The spirit of Christmas takes on seven different forms in Alsace: seven "lands", each with its own atmosphere, magic and uniqueness: seven worlds of light, fragrances, tastes and traditions to be discovered.
