Prelude and Kaysersberg Christmas market

An authentic Christmas market

In the heart of the imperial city of Kaysersberg, the flavours of gingerbread or mulled wine will awaken your taste buds, your eyes will be wide open in front of the bakers’ and pastry chefs’ stalls, filled with bredalas (Christmas cakes) with nuts, almonds, chocolate, dry fruits…

You will be charmed by this sweet and intimate setting while wandering around the 30 wooden chalets from the Christmas market, in the heart of the historical center of Kaysersberg. The craftsmen, scrupulously selected by the members of the Association de Noël à Kaysersberg (Organization for Christmas in Kaysersberg), welcome you and offer you their original and handcrafted creations : wooden toys, decorations for your Christmas tree, blown glass objects, jewels, lamps...

You will have choice when it comes to finding your Christmas presents. Adults will recover their children souls, filled with distant memories.
Our advice : at dusk, when the atmosphere is magical, it is the best moment to discover Kaysersberg and its numerous activities at Christmas time.
