Alsace Christmas Market


We start with the Christmas market of Strasbourg. After that we are heading to Baden-Baden and Gengenbach in Germany. In other words, a full day of a magical and colourful experience.

Strasbourg Christmas Market dates back to the year 1470. In other words it is not a recent event just for tourists. That is to say it was already a local institution long before its world wide fame! After Strasbourg we will head north and cross the river Rhine to visit Baden-Baden Christmas Market in Germany. Baden-Baden is a European well-known little town for luxury. The beauty of the chalets at the Christmas market are worthy of the reputation of this prestigious spa town. 

Finally we will end this beautiful day out with the giant Advent calendar of the little timber-framed city Gengenbach. In this historical town, the city hall is decorated as a Christmas Calendar.

What a Wonderful Day

5.0 rating
September 15, 2020

Three couples were fortunate to visit Strasbourg, Baden-Baden and Gengenbach on the first day of our Christmas Market Adventure. Jean-Paul and Pierre were magnificent guides, enthusiasts, and translators. No worries with traffic as they took care of the little things so that the day is filled with all the joys of attending the markets. The beauty of the Strasbourg Cathedral was so much more appreciated with Jean-Paul’s knowledge and no worries for safety with Pierre’s good driving. Baden-Baden was marvelous. Such unique Christmas market items and the atmosphere had all senses alive. Gengenbach by evening was forever memorable and exciting. Both Jean-Paul and Pierre made sure that we all were able to fully enjoy the atmosphere, cuisine, culture and ambiance that the Christmas season offers. We cannot wait to return and would not hesitate to have Jean-Paul and Pierre as our guides. They know where to take you and remove all the hassles and worries of travel. You won’t be disappointed !
