Colmar Christmas Market 2023

From 23rd November to 29th December 2023


This year visit Colmar Christmas Market, one of the Best Christmas Markets in France with Strasbourg.


Let’s go to Colmar, a city where the magic of Christmas has been experienced in its purest form for six entire weeks, for 20 years. Your way will be drawn by illuminations linking to the city’s five Christmas markets, in a labyrinth of small streets lined with century old half-timbered houses.


Nestling in town squares with their own special architectural features, these islands of togetherness are like the city itself: intimate and authentic. Each market is a mini-village, highlighting passionate and enthusiastic craftsmen. Most of them are from Alsace and have been chosen for the quality and the uniqueness of their products.


Next to that, you are invited to participate to a wide range of activities, making the Christmas in Colmar an uncommon experience: guided tours, wine-tastings, children animations, exhibition of traditional toys, as well as many shows and concerts.
