Christmas markets in France

Christmas Markets in France, otherwise known as Marché de Noël, provide a great opportunity for a winter weekend break, a fantastic atmosphere, shopping opportunities with a Gallic flavour and a chance to replenish wine stocks for the Christmas season. Our list of markets provides just a cross-section. Most towns and cities host a French Christmas Market at some point between late November and the end of December. These French Xmas markets include a few in Paris and one in Lille both of which are particularly popular because of the fast Eurostar connection.

Christmas Market and Festive Breaks to France

French Christmas markets have much to offer the visitor in terms of the varied ambience depending on which part of France they are located. For example Xmas markets in France in the Alsace region have a Teutonic influence because of their proximity to Germany, particularly Strasbourg.

We have a wide choice of Christmas market coach tours available, taking in the various markets in France together with seasonal breaks by air and rail and fabulous hotel offers – see our Christmas breaks section.
