Alsace Villages and Christmas Markets Tour

Strasbourg may be the Christmas Capital but almost all the towns and villages in Alsace host their own Christmas Market and some are certainly worth the trip… So soak up the winter wonderland!


  • Discover at your own pace two Alsatian villages with their Christmas decorations
  • Enjoy scenic views of the wine route during a panoramic bus ride
  • Discover Christmas markets in 6 different neighborhoods of Colmar

On the programme

Set off on an incredible trip from Strasbourg to the Haut-Rhin: explore the Riquewihr Christmas Market.

This traditional Alsatian village literally dazzles in the festive period: the buildings and monuments are illuminated and decorations amaze children and adults.

You’ll be able to have lunch on-site in keeping with Alsatian Christmas traditions with bredalas, manalas, pretzels and mulled wine or head to one of the gourmet restaurants that the region is famous for!

With stars in your eyes and a full tummy, we’ll head back onto the Wine Route to pass through little Alsatian villages all beautifully decorated for the occasion.

Our bus will then stop in Kaysersberg, to discover this medieval village in its Christmas colors. The authentic and artisanal Christmas market in Kaysersberg traditionally welcomes you all four Advent weekends on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. 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 Colmar where different Christmas Markets light up the famous town and create different atmospheres to suit the neighbourhoods. Enjoy three hours of free time to explore at your leisure and sample seasonal treats… and a traditional cup of mulled wine too!

We’ll head back to Strasbourg around 7.30pm: you’ll take wonderful Alsatian Christmas memories back with you.

Pratique

Chauffeur très sympathique. Par contre bus très bruyant à cause de personnes qui n’ont aucune éducation malgré les remarques du chauffeur car on ne pouvais pas entendre l’audio description . Attention aussi quand il fais très froid le bus est très peu chauffé et il faut nettoyer avec un chiffon les vitres pour apercevoir le paysage . Pour améliorer la qualité de ce tour je pense c’est moins de temps à Colmar et privilégier d’autre villages alsaciens ( Obernai / Barr / Eguisheim) mais dans l’ensemble c’est vraiment une super idée de proposé ce mini bus et bien pratique . Merci à toute l’équipe .

Excursion sympathique

L'excursion a permis de découvrir des villages alsaciens et un peu l'histoire de la région . (audio guide dans le bus) La réservation est simple. Je n'ai rencontré aucune difficulté. Activité à recommander à d'autres personnes.
