The Christmas Season is at our door steps again. Yeahhhhh!

Do you wanna try something different; like the French Christmas beer or tasty french cuisines/pastries or wine or cheese?

How about in addition, a casual stroll around a beautiful little town?

Then join us and let's visit the beautiful little French border town of Wissembourg for its renowned Christmas Market.

Wissembourg is located on the German border of France in the Alsace region of Grand Est and to the north of Strasbourg. And it is entirely free to get there with the deutschebahn if you own a job ticket (if you do not have one, it is possible to join others for free on theirs).

We will finally end up at the 13th century Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul around which the Christmas Market takes place.
