In festive heaven... in the towns
and villages of Christmas
Each village becomes a little Middle Ages town again with its authenticity, its wine cellars, restaurants and shops, where streets and byways invite you to discover and dream.
A diversity of decorations and events is offered to the curious visitor: in a dreamlike setting, and in addition to the traditional Christmas markets, a multitude of exhibitions based on specific themes, are offered everywhere.
For example, Munster has chosen to illustrate the theme of the "Bredala" (small Christmas biscuits), Kaysersberg that of "Christmas in tissue", Turckheim that of the "Advent Calendar" (with a giant calendar on which a window will be opened each evening), Eguisheim that of "Christmas traditions", Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr that of "Christmas gifts and decorations", Neuf Brisach that of "the Christmas village in the year 1700", Rouffach that of "traditional handcrafts", Trois Epis that of the pilgrimage and Colmar that of the “Magic of Christmas” with its Christmas markets, illuminations and light shows.
The land of Stars proposes to you events marked by authenticity and traditions, guaranteed by different quality labels:
The "Villages and Villages of Christmas" label distinguishes towns and villages such as Colmar, Eguisheim, Kaysersberg, Munster, Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr, which offer large scale and quality activities throughout the Advent period.
