France Strasbourg Christmas Market Planturista
24.11.17 - 24.12.17

Christmas markets with a common name of “Christkindlmarkt” are held in many European cities, but the very first such fair was held in the 16th century in Strasbourg.

That’s why, just Strasbourg is a so-called capital of the Christmas markets in Europe, and the city follows this status, arranging for many centuries very large, beautiful and magnificent Christmas markets.

300 small wooden houses-chalets are located in the city center, offering to taste French specialties and to buy Christmas gifts, and a huge 30-meter-high Christmas tree in the center of the fair shines every week with new light effects.
