A festive fairytale
Home to one of Europe’s oldest Christmas markets, Strasbourg is the ultimate winter break. Grab our flights to Strasbourg and get ready to shop the wooden lodges for souvenirs and festive gifts. A must- visit is the magnificent Great Christmas Tree at Place Kléber. Sip mulled wine as you stroll down cobbled alleys and admire the picturesque houses in Petite France.
Be inspired by this extraordinary example of Gothic architecture. From its medieval stained-glass windows to its intricate Horloge Astronomique that performs at 12:30pm every day, Cathédrale Notre-Dame is a wonder to explore. Head to the top of the north tower for breathtaking views across the city, all the way to the Black Forest!
French and German feasts
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to local delicacies. Enjoy mulled wine and small bredele biscuits at Strasbourg Christmas market. Or embrace the blends of French and German flavours at a traditional winstub (tavern). And of course, you can’t go wrong with the Alsatian classic of tarte flambée – a thin flatbread crust covered with cream, bacon and onions, baked in a bread oven. Bon appétit!
