2 Alsatian Christmas markets amongst the best in Europe

For several years, the European Best Destination site has offered internet users the chance to vote for the best Christmas market in Europe. This year, the Strasbourg and Colmar Christmas markets are ranked 2nd and 3rd respectively behind the Zagreb Christmas market.

Strasbourg, the oldest in Europe

Rewarded twice in 2014 and 2015, the Strasbourg Christmas market is once again on the podium of the best Christmas markets in Europe. French Capital of Christmas, Strasbourg boasts the oldest Christmas market in Europe, the Christkindelsmärik first held in 1570. The tradition has been maintained ever since and each year over 300 stands spread throughout the city centre welcome you with warmth and authenticity.

Colmar, the most sparkling market

Colmar gains a place in the ranking and is elected 3rd best Christmas market in Europe. In Colmar, the magic of Christmas can be experienced in its purest form.  Through the labyrinth of small streets and wooden chalets, the succession of stalls, decorations and illuminations will draw you into the intimate and warm magic of Christmas.
