Alsace & Strasbourg Christmas Markets

Alsace is a magical place, technically part of France today, the region has been under the control of Germany on and off again for the past millennia leaving it with a somewhat of a dual citizenship making it the most German part of France. Or the most French part of Germany. Whilst influenced by both countries, the region is unique in itself and while we travel through it, especially at this festive time of year, we’ll probably get the chance to see what it is that makes Alsace such a special place. We start in Klingenthal, a traditional Alsatian town in the heart of the region, surrounded by hills on all sides, a long look at the snow capped horizon and you may forget you’re in 2017 but with Christmas around the corner, this small town really comes to life and demands all of your attention. Heading to Strasbourg, we can really see how the city defines the region as a whole, this appears most clearly at the Christmas market, as people come from miles around to set up their own and enjoy the stalls providing everything from traditional Christmas gifts to festive food in this wonderful location. After that we travel to Obernai, a town that has been described as a condensed version of Alsace, this dainty town with its half timbered buildings and market squares is the perfect location for a holiday just before Christmas. If this fairytale setting doesn’t get you in the Christmas spirit, nothing will.
