Day 2

After breakfast we visit Strasbourg. “Strasbourg, the Capital of Christmas” in Alsace. The Strasbourg Christams market in France is the oldest market in the country, dating back to 1570. Every year, from the last week in November to the end of December, the town gets taken over by all things Christmassy. Shop windows are transformed into winter wonderlands and the streets are decorated with twinkling lights and festive garlands. The Strasbourg Christmas market spreads out across the centre of the town, focused around Cathedral square and Place Broglie where hundreds of stalls sell ornaments, toys, food and mulled wine to keep us warm as we browse.

Take a stroll through the magnificently decorated historic city centre and marvel at the daily opening of the world’s biggest Advent calendar house.
