A list of my favourite Christmas markets with dates and opening hours.

The Christmas period in the Upper Rhine Valley begins every year on the first weekend and Sunday of Advent, more or less a month before Christmas and even from November 20 for some Christmas markets. A large number of Christmas events are organized throughout the region: Christmas markets, concerts, storytelling and nativity scenes.

In the Rhine area of ​​the Upper Rhine, the cities of Colmar, Strasbourg, Mulhouse, Obernai (20/11), Freiburg-im-Breisgau (Germany) and Basel (Switzerland) and Montbéliard will open their Christmas markets from the end of November 2021!
