Ribeauvillé Christmas market : the most medieval

Nestling in Alsace's wine producing region, Ribeauvillé or the "strolling fiddlers’ town" heartily invites you to come along and celebrate a mediaeval Christmas! The towers, ramparts and the three castles give Ribeauvillé a fairytale decorative setting worthy of the Middle Ages. This wine producing town with its mediaeval architecture is ideally suited for discovering all the charm of a traditional Christmas. Ribeauvillé’s Christmas market makes the most of this enchanting setting, displaying a selection of Christmas trees bearing coats of arms and banners! Some facades are illuminated with lighting effects, and all are attractively decorated with stars and angels.

Ribeauvillé’s Christmas market stands out for its unique atmosphere from another age! You could admire the skill of fire jugglers or the elegant dances of the genteel ladies and gentlemen of Ribeaupierre. The troubadours’ songs and storytellers’ tales further add to the authentic atmosphere of this Christmas market, which really is one of a kind.
