Winter 2021: Christmas Markets on a cruise with CroisiEurope!

Every year, the Alsace adorns itself with beautiful lights and becomes an enchanting setting for millions of visitors who come to soak up the magic of Christmas.

Deprived of their market in 2020, the streets of Strasbourg, the capital of Christmas, see long-awaited return of their chalets and their dazzling illuminations.

Alsacian Christmas Markets

From November 26, at the bends of Alsatian streets and alleys, you’ll be able to stroll through the sandstone of the chalets and let yourself be amazed by a warm atmosphere in the hearts of these charming towns. A true open-air spectacle for more than five centuries, the Strasbourg Christmas Market is one of the oldest in the world and the largest in Europe. You can wander through its various markets scattered on the Grande Île of Strasbourg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the foot of its impressive Gothic cathedral - the tallest building in the world for two consecutive centuries - to the emblematic Christmas Tree on Place Kleber, discover local crafts, regional gastronomy, and Alsatian authenticity in the heart of its capital. 

With more than 300 chalets with regional and artisanal products, you will be enchanted by the Spirit of Christmas between the scent of mulled wines and the melody of Advent. 

As it has in years past, CroisiEurope invites you to discover the authenticity and magic of the Christmas markets. Discover our programs and excursions in the heart of the most beautiful Alsatian Christmas markets. Along the Rhine, from Strasbourg to Colmar, via Kirrwiller or Fribourg, immerse yourself in the heart of the Christmas Spirit.
