Strasbourg Christmas Market
Ever since 1570, Strasbourg has hosted the famous "Christkindelsmarkt", making this the oldest Christmas Market. The traditional atmosphere comes alive in the historical centre of the capital of Alsace, the facades are brought to life by the decorations and the streets are filled with the delicious aromas of spices and cinnamon. In Place Kleber, the huge Christmas tree erected there from mid November never fails to delight.
The internationally acclaimed spa and festival city, in the beautiful legendary Black Forest hills, will have a very special atmosphere with its Christkindelsmarkt, against the commandingly picturesque backdrop of the Kurhaus and the colonnades lit up by thousands of lights in the heart of the festively decorated old town. The Baden-Baden Christmas Market is not only a good meeting point, but also a place to celebrate the pre-Christmas period where people can get together and enjoy a glass of glühwein or punch.
A variety of choirs, orchestras and bands will be performing daily on the stage in front of the Kurhaus to put the visitors from around the world in the Christmas mood.
Day 4 - After breakfast, travel back through Germany, Belgium and France to Calais for your return to England.
