Colmar, a large Alsatian town between Strasbourg and Mulhouse and nestled in the heart of the vineyards, is the most typical and traditional of the area's towns. During the holidays, the town offers six Christmas markets, each with its unique charm.
One of the most traditional markets is held inside the Koïfhus building, a majestic medieval structure. Here, visitors can admire the creations of around twenty local artisans, including ceramists, potters, master glassmakers, cabinetmakers, wood carvers, hatters, and jewelers. On the first floor, visitors can find and explore the Toy Museum, an extraordinary installation that entertains both young and old.
After exploring the Koïfhus market, visitors can head to the Place de l'Ancienne customs to find stalls overflowing with holiday gift ideas. The Place de la Cathédrale gourmet market is perfect for those seeking to indulge in local cuisine. Nine Colmar chefs, known for their first-rate gastronomy, showcase their dishes and specialties here.
