Christmas time always replaces our grey days by brightness and peaceful moments! Forget about worries, bills to pay, house cleaning and children homework. Heart pains, resentment and disagreements vanish. Christmas is a unique moment suspended in time : the magic of fairy tales, the wonder of children’s glances, smiles, warm and peacefull atmospheres, family time, love, and friendship.

As every year during this exceptional event, six Christmas markets settle down in the centre of Colmar, each one with its own atmosphere and specificities. From 23 November to 6 January, Colmar wears its ceremonial garment : it is a unique opportunity to stroll through the streets of the city, to marvel at the glittering facades of the timbered houses, to smell the flavours of gingerbread, cinnamon and hot wine, to marvel at the work of craftsmen who speak about their craft and know-how with passion.

At this occasion, everyone will find what pleases him, to bring back home wonderful memories and pictures : one of the six villages (the kids, craft, traditionnal…) and their small houses filled with wonder, surprises and sweetness, the giant ice rink Place Rapp, the exhibition of art crafts, the wine fair with its various producers… and above all, the giant mailbox on the market of small Venice, for everyone to address his most secret wishes to Santa Claus !

So dont hesitate anymore : between the 26th of November till the 6th of January, Colmar is waiting for you ! You can also take the occasion to discover the Christmas markets hosted by the famous villages surrounding Colmar : Kaysersberg, Turckheim, Ingersheim…

And on this very specific occasion, we reserve you a few surprises, for your stay to be unique !
