Traditional and popular Christmas markets are a major shopping event and are held from November onwards.
Originating in Germany and the Alsace, Christmas markets have spread across the whole of Europe since the 1990s. A great favourite with Parisians and visitors to the city, they have gradually become an essential part of the festive season in Paris. Christmas markets can be found all over the French capital, from Les Halles, Notre-Dame to Les Tuileries, as well as the impressive Christmas Village at La Défense. Soak up the Christmas atmosphere on the streets of Paris!
These markets made up of wooden chalets create a warm and magical Christmassy atmosphere and are the perfect place to pick up Christmas decorations, festive objects, regional produce and arts & crafts … You will certainly find decorations for your Christmas tree, some original ideas for Christmas presents and ingredients to make your Christmas meals even more delicious.
