Strasbourg

Strasbourg city breaks

Fall into the pages of a French fairytale when you book a Strasbourg Christmas market break. Nestled close to the German border, this charming city has that je ne sais quoi you’re looking for. Amble though the UNESCO-listed centre, Grande-Île, and cobbled lanes lined with half-timbered houses, elegant squares and romantic canals will appear before your eyes. And just when it couldn’t get any more magical, during the festive season, Strasbourg really comes into its own under the twinkle of thousands of lights. 
Strasbourg Christmas markets

Strasbourg Christmas markets

The city’s annual festive extravaganza, Christkindelsmärik, sees more than 300 wooden chalets spring up across Strasbourg’s dinky centre. This tradition started way back in 1570, making it one of the oldest and largest Christmas markets in Europe. Embrace the spirit by picking up bredele, teeny biscuits, and whizzing across Place Kléber’s ice skating rink, right beside an enormous tree. Joyeux Noël!

Ogle the old town

Ogle the old town

Tear yourself away from the gingerbread-laden stalls and you’ll find Strasbourg’s medieval heart is just as pretty. Wander through the twisting alleyways, keeping an eye out for picture-perfect Maison Kammerzell, before setting your sights on the Gothic Cathédrale Notre-Dame. Conquer its 332 steps to the top and you’ll be rewarded with views out to the mystical Black Forest in the distance.

Take a peek at Petite France

Take a peek at Petite France

Unlock another part of town when you make a beeline for Strasbourg’s Petite France quarter, spread along a labyrinth of canals. Candle-lit bistros and cosy taverns (known as winstubs) make this the perfect place to get out of the cold and sample the region’s Alsatian cuisine. Settle in for choucroute, a delicious wine-braised cabbage and pork concoction, or tarte flambée, the area’s answer to pizza.
