From End of November to beginning of January we have a number of special tours dedicated to the magic of the Christmas markets and traditions in Alsace and nearby Germany. Unique!

From the top of the Vosges mountains (Alsace, France) to the Black Forest (Bade-Württemberg, Germany) and Switzerland right on the south, our Upper Rhine region, encompassing both banks of the Rhine river with the city of Colmar and the historical village of Riquewihr right in its center, ranks definitely high among the best destinations to visit in Europe.

To give you the opportunity to discover the best of that incredible region we take you to some outstanding private tours in a new luxury 8-seater minivan. We are speaking English, French and German (on request).

Your driver but also guide – Pierre Papuga

A professional graduate in public transport, he drives our small groups from one destination to another in a comfortable minibus equipped for journeys in all seasons, including winter. In this type of day trip it is essential to be in the hands of a driver who considers the comfort and safety of his passengers as the most important criterion. Pierre also knows the region in his pocket.

Christmas Markets in Alsace and Germany

The Christmas period and Christmas Markets in Alsace and Germany begins every year on the first weekend and Sunday of Advent, more or less a month before Christmas and even from November 20 for some Christmas markets. A large number of Christmas events are organized throughout the region.

I give you my advice, visit the Christmas markets during the week if you have the possibility or if you have a day off to ask, it’s so much more pleasant and not so crowded.
