Full description
Get into the spirit of the season and visit different Christmas markets along the wine route. Begin your tour at the Strasbourg bus station where you'll board a comfortable heated bus and receive audio guides with information for your Christmas market tour. On your first stop, explore the Riquewihr Christmas market during a one-hour visit. Gaze in awe at the illuminated monuments and buildings in this dazzling Alsatian village. After Riquewihr, head back onto the wine route and pass by numerous little Alsatian villages all beautifully decorated for the occasion until you reach the village of Kaysersberg. The authentic and artisanal Christmas market in Kaysersberg traditionally welcomes you all four Advent weekends on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. On the other days of the week, you will find there a concentrate of Alsace: a historic city center filled with charm with beautiful old half-timbered houses, magnificent corner oriel windows, cobbled streets, the river that crosses the city and, overlooking the village, the medieval castle. Then it's time to hit the road again to the third stop in Colmar. Watch how the Christmas markets light up the famous town and create different atmospheres to suit the neighborhoods. Enjoy a 3-hour stroll at leisure and explore the market at your own pace. Savor seasonal treats and have another traditional cup of mulled wine. At around 7:30 PM, take the bus and return to the meeting location in Strasbourg and finish off the tour with wonderful Christmas memories of the Alsatian Christmas markets.

I applied because I could not move due to a strike of the French National Railway. In conclusion, I participated in this tour and it was the correct answer. I had three hours in Colmar and plenty of time elsewhere, so I was able to get around the city of Alsace efficiently.

A fabulous full day visiting beautuful villages and towns decorated for Xmas. Suggested tip take an additional pair of shoes. To make the most of the trip there's lots of walking, it's would have been good to change foot wear! We liked the Riquewihr market best, it wasn't so crowded as Colmar, with a great range of stalls and shops. Eguisheim is a beautiful village with a lovely market.

I recommend this tour which is really cool. Our guide Martin was very punctual in all the stages and gave us all the information we needed. The audio guides allowed us to deepen the history of the different towns we visited. The duration of each stop was sufficient for the visit.
