It was in Strasbourg in 1570 that the very first edition of the oldest Christmas market in Europe took place.
Strasbourg has been, for the 2nd year running, voted the best Christmas market in Europe in 2015, as part of the worldwide competition launched by the Brussels-based European Best Destinations organisation.
In this period of the year the streets of Strasbourg are dressed up to celebrate the upcoming Christmas.
Come night-time, this picturesque city is lit up by dozens of kilometres of Christmas lights and decorations.
Strasbourg is an inspiring place, preserving the charm of an old medieval city.
This year it delights locals, travellers and bystanders, once again.
