FAQ

  • What type of clothes should I wear?

    If you are on the morning tour, check the daily weather before starting out on your Christmas Market tour of Strasbourg. If you are on the late afternoon tour, wear warm clothes as it can get quite cold once the sun has set.
  • When is the best time to visit the Strasbourg Christmas Markets?

    We have two options for visits of the Strasbourg Christmas Markets. The first option is the morning tour that we have put in place for those that wish to avoid the large crowds. In the morning there are less visitors and you will have more time to shop for decorations. It is also much easier to taste the local delicacies.

    The evening option is of course the most popular one as all the Christmas illuminations give a special Winter Wonderland feel to the city of Strasbourg. Ideally, if you would like to book this option, then we recommend that you choose a week day as there are less visitors than on week-ends. If you don't have a choice and are only in Strasbourg on the week end, then your best option is Friday or Sunday evenings. If you are only there on a Saturday and absolutely want to follow the late afternoon visit, be prepared to not be alone on the market!
  • Which Christmas Market will I visit during this private tour?

    There are 11 Christmas markets in Strasbourg that spread out all across town. There are large Christmas Markets such as the ones located on Cathedral Square, Place Kléber, Place Gutenberg or Place Broglie. Then you have smaller ones such as the Christmas markets of Place du Marché au Poisson, Place Saint Thomas or Place Grimmeisen. What is important to understand is that each market has its specialty even though you will find christmas decorations, mulled wine and local delicacies in all of them.

    Your tour will include the Christmas Markets that best fit what exactly you are looking for. Thus, if food & wine is your thing, then a visit to the Place Broglie Christmas Market will be the perfect destination. Here, there are over 100 stalls among which many serve great local food & mulled wines. If you are looking for local handicraft then the Market located on Place du Temple Neuf will be your first destination. 

    As such, the best thing to do before you begin your market stroll is to speak with your guide. Knowing what you are looking for will allow her/him to take you to the best Christmas Market that is adapted to your wishes. If you do not have any preferences, then just follow along and your guide will take you on a tour of her/his preferred markets and stalls.
