From Strasbourg: Alsace Villages & Colmar Christmas Market

1. From Strasbourg: Alsace Villages & Colmar Christmas Market

Get into the spirit of the season and visit different Christmas markets along the wine route. Begin your tour at the Strasbourg bus station where you'll board a comfortable heated bus and receive audio guides with information for your Christmas market tour. On your first stop, explore the Riquewihr Christmas market during a one-hour visit. Gaze in awe at the illuminated monuments and buildings in this dazzling Alsatian village. After Riquewihr, head back onto the wine route and pass by numerous little Alsatian villages all beautifully decorated for the occasion until you reach the village of Kaysersberg. The authentic and artisanal Christmas market in Kaysersberg traditionally welcomes you all four Advent weekends on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. On the other days of the week, you will find there a concentrate of Alsace: a historic city center filled with charm with beautiful old half-timbered houses, magnificent corner oriel windows, cobbled streets, the river that crosses the city and, overlooking the village, the medieval castle. Then it's time to hit the road again to the third stop in Colmar. Watch how the Christmas markets light up the famous town and create different atmospheres to suit the neighborhoods. Enjoy a 3-hour stroll at leisure and explore the market at your own pace. Savor seasonal treats and have another traditional cup of mulled wine. At around 7:30 PM, take the bus and return to the meeting location in Strasbourg and finish off the tour with wonderful Christmas memories of the Alsatian Christmas markets.

What people are saying about Riquewihr

A fabulous full day visiting beautuful villages and towns decorated for Xmas. Suggested tip take an additional pair of shoes. To make the most of the trip there's lots of walking, it's would have been good to change foot wear! We liked the Riquewihr market best, it wasn't so crowded as Colmar, with a great range of stalls and shops. Eguisheim is a beautiful village with a lovely market.

We loved it. The villages are wonderful, although the weekends of December are saturated with people. Worth it and the driver very friendly, helped us in everything he could. For the price it could include a small guided tour in Colmar but despite this it is an essential excursion.

I applied because I could not move due to a strike of the French National Railway. In conclusion, I participated in this tour and it was the correct answer. I had three hours in Colmar and plenty of time elsewhere, so I was able to get around the city of Alsace efficiently.

Impressive excursion, the guide Martin very friendly and making you feel relaxed and unhurried, the towns that are visited and the pace at which it is done is perfect, I would do it again.

Make sure to not get overwhelmed with excitement for the markets and forget where the bus parked!
