An authentic, magical experience like no other
In the heart of its ancient fortifications, Mulhouse lights up to provide you with a poetic experience combining nature, authenticity and enchantment. From 24 November to 27 December 2023, its historic centre transforms into a fairytale forest and pays tribute to its inhabitants’ creativity with 80 chalets selling handcrafted products.
Glass of mulled wine in hand, immerse yourself in the joyful winter café atmosphere on Place des Cordiers. Then head for Place des Victoires and its richly decorated Christmas tree to admire the traditional seasonal illuminations. A Christmas market, seven different ambiences, each with its own special charm, await your discovery as you wend your way across the city’s squares and narrow little streets!
Fall in love with the local craftwork at Mulhouse’s Christmas market
With a rich industrial past, Mulhouse is famous for its textiles and every year the city decks out its Great Christmas Tree, Town Hall and façades in gorgeous Christmas fabrics. Each year, a new pattern is created by a local artist, and the fabric can be purchased at one of the Christmas shops. Make the most of them and fill up your bag with delicious bredeles, those traditional Alsatian Christmas biscuits.
Mulhouse through the seasons
The end-of-year celebrations certainly make for an ideal family visit to Mulhouse, but there are also plenty of activities waiting for you all year round. The “City of the Bollwerk” gradually reveals itself as you stroll through its picturesque little streets. Discovery of street art or a visit to its technical museums: there’s something for everyone! Take the family to the Alsace Ecomuseum and the Little Prince Theme Park for a host of unforgettable memories!
