Strasbourg, Capital of Christmas

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.

Strasbourg is an inspiring place, preserving the charm of an old medieval city.

This year it delights locals, travellers and bystanders, once again.
