Colmat the magic of Christmas markets

Welcome on Colmar's christmas markets

The beguiling charm of the Festive Season in Colmar!

The magic of Christmas in Colmar, first of all there’s the ambiance of the Old Town, illuminated and decorated like a fairy tale : a historic setting made magical by the Christmas illuminations which, in this festive period, blend harmoniously with the wonderful lighting designed to enhance the town’s heritage, and lay a soothing aura of light over the centre of Colmar.

Colmar town centre is essentially pedestrian, comprises numerous architectural treasures such as monuments, churches, museums and alleys, full of imposing buildings dating from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. Marvel at the Maison Pfister, the Koïfhus, Unterlinden museum, Little Venice, the maison des têtes and Saint Martin's Collegiate church. The whole town is decorated, as in a dream, turning the old centre into a veritable open-air theatre where the warm Christmas mood envelops the heart of the town.

In Alsace, the preparation of Christmas and of end-of-year celebrations it is an especially moment which waited. Moment of conviviality and sharing, this period is favourable to return to the real family values. In this region, the preparation of celebration starts 25th November for the opening of Christmas markets, escalates during all the Advent period (4 Sundays before Christmas), to reach in apotheosis at the 24th December and finishes gently with the Epiphany on the 6th January.
