Christmas markets - Tourism in the Bas-Rhin

From Advent to Epiphany, Alsace celebrates the Christmas break with authenticity and warmth. Streets, houses and shop windows are illuminated and decorated with magnificent Christmas decorations. The Christmas markets are a great time of celebration and traditions with the essential spiced mulled wine and the delicious Christmas cakes flavoured with cinnamon. A magic and unforgettable moment! In Alsace, Christmas is always celebrated with cakes such as gingerbread, bredele (little Christmas cakes in numerous shapes) and Christstollen (brioche-like Christmas cake with raisins, candied fruits and marzipan, and sprinkled with icing sugar).
