Metz Christmas Market 2023

From 24th November to 30th December 2023


Visit Metz Christmas Market, one of the Best Christmas Markets in France. Get into the spirit of the festive season and enjoy the warmest of welcomes as you visit the Christmas markets on the city’s main squares. Find hand-crafted gifts in the Christmas pyramid and taste the finest gingerbread around.  


Rise above the rooftops on the City Skyliner, then warm up cold hands around a mulled wine or hot chocolate.  


Let the illuminations chase away the dark winter days, and enjoy traditional treats like the merry-go-round, a walk through the magical "Sentiers des Lanternes" with animated trees offered by the Department of Moselle or take the chance to stock up on gastronomic Christmas essentials at the city market hall.  


Next to the Cathedral, the big wheel adds to the leisure activities for young and old alike. While the taste of Christmas awaits at the gourmet food market on place de la Comédie.  


The boutiques and shops are open on the 4 Sundays before Christmas, so you can enjoy the sights, smells and tastes on city breaks right up to the last minute.  


If you are here on the 2nd and 3rd of December, don’t miss out on the St Nicolas festivities!


Book your flights, your accommodation as well as your tours & activities and visit the Best Christmas Markets in France.
