Christmas in France is both magical and memorable. If you are traveling to France during the Christmas season, you will not be able to resist the charm of going to a Christmas Market. One of the most famous Christmas markets in all of Europe is set in the region of Strasbourg, situated close to Paris and Nancy where you may be picking up your Peugeot lease vehicle. Founded in 1570, the Christmas Market in Strasbourg is a must see during your stay in France over the holidays. This market is one of the most famous, as well as one of the largest Christmas markets in Europe. Old and young alike travel to this market to sample spice bread, bretzels (yes, Google it…bretzel), confectionery, pastries and wine. This is also a wonderful place to find Christmas decorations that you and your family could keep for years to come to remember your stay in France. There is also a Christmas tree in the center of town that measures at almost 100 feet tall! This major cultural event attracts over 2 million visitors every year and there is something awaiting every taste. With over 300 chalets spread across 11 sites (which are all reachable on foot) and 500 events, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. If you will be traveling to France this Christmas season, the Strasbourg Christmas Market is an event you will not want to miss and will remember for a lifetime. A long term car rental in Strasbourg makes for a very convenient home base for your extended European stays as we have a Peugeot lease office right at the Entzheim international airport.
