Christmas in Alsace:
And as we approach our special anniversary, I can not remember harder than snow, half-timbered houses of wood, vin chaud (mulled wine) we were warm in temperatures of -5 ° C, other aspects that are recognized are the streets Elegant in Strasbourg, his proud and beautiful cathedral. I also remember the boulangeries, towers and medieval Christmas markets in Colmar, Riquewhir, Strasbourg, Truckheim Kaysersberg or Ribeauville. But mostly, mostly I remember the streets with Christmas lights and decorations that lit and magic permeated the evening in any of these French towns and cities.
At sunset stroll through the narrow streets of the Alsatian villages, calmly enjoying the lighting of the streets and most beautiful Christmas decorations, accompanied by many passers-by in a happy and relaxed, is priceless. Enter the store’s largest Christmas ornaments and beautiful I’ve seen in my life is in Riquewhir, shame it can not be displayed because it is prohibited to take pictures, and spend half an hour watching thousands of delicate and beautiful Christmas items (some quite expensive) .
In addition Ribeauville enjoyed an incredible atmosphere, caused by the holding of curious medieval festivals in the street (December 14, 2010), which was offered from tasting food and drink (you can see cooking pigs in the street directly ) to medieval games and interactive outdoor theater.

Medieval market in Ribeauville:
In Colmar, a beautiful city center of our excursions, we did some of your favorite holiday because its old town is very beautiful and exquisitely decorated. Its Christmas market is also highly recommended, and has nothing to envy to the neighboring German Christmas markets.
Colmar at Christmas:
Eguisheim is perhaps the most beautiful and charming village of all, because of its precious ornaments and especially the curious circular structure of most of its streets. Riquewhir rivals in beauty, and that’s saying a lot.
But it is in other articles where you go slowly reeled magic Alsatian villages to visit at Christmas. For now, I think we now have a pretty good idea of pictures that we will find Christmas in Alsace if you visit their villages at this time. Who can resist spending a Christmas in Alsace?
