Christmas shopping in France
France has a fine tradition of market shopping. Each town or city has its own special flavours. At Christmas time, things get even more special, with seasonal foods, handmade gifts and decorations. There's plenty of singing too!
The German-inspired markets of the eastern regions are especially appealing. Strasbourg, for example, has one of the oldest Christmas markets in Europe. It's well-known for its huge Christmas tree and mulled wine. You'll also find Bredele, the famous Alsatian Christmas cakes and biscuits that make perfect gifts.
Taste the festive cheer
Nearby Colmar is pretty special too, as the old town is lit up with decorations and songs. Colmar's medieval architecture is amazing at any time of year, but at Christmas, it's really magical! With markets like these, you can take your pick from dozens of stalls showcasing local crafts and delicacies.
If you want a break from the markets, you can also catch some mountain air in the Vosges Forest. Also, wherever you are in France, you're never far from a vineyard. There's no need to let the cold weather deter you from a tipple!
