Full description
On this festive 7-hour program you’ll depart Strasbourg in the morning, and head to the village of Colmar. Christmas in Colmar’s historic town center is a magical experience featuring Christmas illuminations that blend perfectly with the lighting designed to enhance the town’s heritage. The pedestrian city center with its major architectural treasures dates from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. It is beautifully decorated, creating a veritable open-air theater where the warm Christmas mood envelops the heart of the town. Enjoy some free time in the area to visit your choice of the 5 different Christmas markets. Then you’ll take a drive along the famous Alsace Wine Route, passing through some of the region’s most beautiful villages. The afternoon program will depend on the date of your tour. Eguisheim, Riquewihr (Medieval market), Colmar and Strasbourg cities host a market every single day. On the 6th, 7th, and 8th of December, your stop will certainly include the Christmas Market of Bergheim. On the 7th, 8th, 14th, and 15th of December you will have the opportunity to discover Ribeauvillé market. Almost every single day of this festive season, the market of Kaysersberg will be ready to show you all it has to offer. After the market visits you’ll return to Strasbourg.

Not kidding, Florence is one of the best tour guides we ever had. She is so kind, and warm and full of stories. Oh, and always smiling. It was a pleasure to see Colmar and Ribeauville with her by our side. On a more technical side, everything was as expected: meeting point, transportation, group size, schedule etc. And the Christmas markets are definetely different from the ones in Strasbourg, much more ‘local’ and authentic. I would say this experience is a must-do. Would go again anytime.
