Pére Noël is coming to Strasbourg

It is well known that this period of the year is the most magical one: naughty kids being worried about not getting their presents on time, good kids expecting everything their hearts could desire, Christmas lights everywhere, but most of all, a splendid and completely enjoyable feeling shared by people all over the world.

If you want to do something special and to feel by yourself what Christmas means for others, you will definitely have to visit the “Marché de Noël” (Christmas Market), an exciting and full of atmosphere event. Even though it is a specific tradition for many countries across the Europe, this time I will tell you a few words about Strasbourg, declared this year “Capitale de Noël”.

“Marché de Noël”, a tradition since 1570, it is held every year from the last Saturday of November to 31th of December. Although there is a Christmas map pointing out all the special locations through the city, where you can take part in various activities related to Christmas: Place Kléber, Place Broglie, Place Gutenberg, Place du Temple Neuf, the most famous location is without doubt: Place de la Cathédrale, right in front of the impressive ancient monument, Cathédrale de Notre-Dame. Every year a different country is invited as a guest honour to add an extra touch of magic, and this year is Switzerland turn to show off its marvelous traditions. So, if you want to find out more about this, Place Gutenberg is the answer to all your questions about Swiss traditions: artistic and cultural activities, a traditional market of local Swiss products (don’t forget to taste the chocolate!), concerts or exhibitions are only a few of the entertaining activities from The Swiss Village.

The Christmas market, or Christkindelmärik in the Alsacian dialect, is a culinary fest also. Here are a few of the delights which you can taste: boules de neige – special marshmallows made of chocolate with various flavours, sweet or salted alsacian bretzels, Christmas chocolate figurines, ginger bread or a hot cup of delicious mulled wine.

Another two points of attraction for the tourists who are invading the town this period of the year are the giant Christmas Tree and all the small streets and alsacian houses embellished with gorgeous Christmas decorations.

Now I am inviting your eyes to travel over some photos of one of the beauty spots in France, in a magical journey!

Each time anyone asks me to say something about myself, I find it a very difficult thing to do. Why? Shouldn’t be quite easy to make some PR for yourself, especially if you are in loved with this particular kind of job? The answer should definitely be a positive one, but again…I prefer to let the others or my activities to speak for myself. But there are a few things that I can tell you: I am trying to live my life by what Ghandi used to say: “You must be the change that you wish to see”, I love everything about public relations, advertising and media, I am passionate about reading and travelling, and let’s face it, about some adventure now and then.

    I was also there this winter, but I was a little bit disappointed of the Christmas market I imagined it bigger but the petite France was so beautiful. 🙂 I spent a great time.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    Very good site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
