Food and festive traditions in the ‘Capital of Christmas’…

Strasbourg has held its world-famous ‘Christkindelsmärik’ Christmas market every year since 1570. Now one of the oldest Christmas markets in Europe, it attracts thousands of visitors who flock here each winter to shop hand-made decorations, admire grand fairy-light installations and bask in its fairytale atmosphere. 

We invite you to rediscover the magic of the festive season on this interactive, family-friendly food experience through some of Strasbourg’s best Christmas markets. We’ll take you to our favourite spots for traditional Alsatian food and stop for mulled wine tasting along the way. Your local guide will point out the most respected craftsmen and share insider tips on how to find the best stalls for gift shopping as you stroll. 

Our tour takes you behind the scenes to some of the artisan’s workshops. You’ll meet a local baker who’ll show you how to make traditional Christmas pastries and have multiple traditional food tastings along the way!

Join us on this activity-filled experience as we explore the food and festive traditions in the ‘Capital of Christmas’.

Jack was a great guide and the food selections were delicious and were well contextualized within Alsace history and culture.

The tour was incredible. Nahama made the night fun and informative. The spots she chose were really cool and true to the area. Joe and I had a great night. I loved, loved the gin and tonic at Supertonic. All of the hosts were fun and made us feel very welcome. Thanks for a great night at the beginning of our stay in Strasbourg.
