Sélestat sous la neige pendant la période des fêtes de fin d'année

The tradition of the Christmas market in Sélestat

Sélestat is the birthplace of the Christmas tree. In December, the city offers many decorations and activities that will delight young and old. A visit route allows an unusual discovery of the charming medieval city. An ephemeral fir forest has been set up. There is an exhibition on the history of the Christmas tree in the Gothic church of Saint-Georges. You have to think about going to admire the chandelier in balls of Meisenthal in the Romanesque church of Sainte-Foy.

La Maison du pain opens its Christmas bakery to visitors. Within the framework of the old "stove" of the corporation of bakers, bredele, spices and honey are sublimated. It is possible to taste up to more than 40 kinds of pure butter bredele and all the sweet specialties of an Alsatian Christmas. La Maison du pain organizes workshops for the whole family upon registration. The bread museum allows you to go back in time and discover the history of this simple but so important dish for humanity that is bread.

It is possible to get an idea of a medieval Christmas thanks to the animations of the castle of Haut-Koenigsbourg.

At the castle, the Christmas period is an opportunity to travel back in time. The fir trees of apples and hosts recount medieval traditions, while the imperial banquet table set up in the Kaiser's room recalls the receptions given by William II in these places. On certain days, activities invite you to discover daily life at Christmas time in the 15th century.
