Christmas markets are very popular here in France. One of the most popular and most festive areas to experience them is in Alsace, so I made it a point to get up there (it’s North East, right on the German border) and prepare myself for the Christmas season!
After a failed attempt at planning a weekend getaway, Megan and I decided to just make the trip into a day excursion. We took my car and left early on a Sunday morning to drive 4 hours to Strasbourg. This was a bit rough considering we had gone out in Dijon the night before, but our Christmas spirit overruled the hangover and we pressed on 🙂
Well worth the effort! Every little cobblestoned street was filled with people, lights, vendors, hot drinks and yummy treats. In the center of everything was a huge cathedral where we got to see a Christmas concert! Perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit.
