Strasbourg – Capitale de Noël (Capital of Christmas)
 
Situated on the banks of the river Rhine, the city of Strasbourg is known for its historical and cultural sights, as well as its specific, picturesque ambiance. It is famous for its Cathedral which is the highest medieval building in Europe, for its channels which encircle the city center, for its lovely parks and distinctive traditional cuisine and for its traditional Christmas market.
It was in Strasbourg in 1570 that the very first edition of the oldest Christmas market in Europe took place, then called the “Christkindelsmärik” (market of the Infant Jesus). Since this time, Strasbourg has continued the tradition of a traditional, authentic, warm and generous Alsatian Christmas and these are all the reasons why “Strasbourg, the Capital of Christmas” continues to enjoy repeated success.

With its some 300 chalets spread over 11 sites in the city center, it is also one of the largest Christmas markets in Europe. You will find arts and crafts, food and typical Alsatian Christmas decorations.

For the occasion, the city dons its most beautiful finery and is illuminated by several hundred kilometers of Christmas lights and decorative objects. You cannot miss the Great Christmas Tree, on place Kléber. This is an age-old Strasbourg tradition because a manuscript dated 1605 was found describing the fir trees adorned with decorations in the guild halls of Strasbourg during Advent.
 
Let’s not forget the Village of Sharing run by charitable and humanitarian organizations, located at the foot of the Great Christmas Tree because Christmas would not be so warm and wonderful without this movement of generosity towards one fellows.
