A Christmas market of yesteryear

During the 4 weekends preceding Christmas, craftsmen's and merchants' chalets as well as pop-up shops take over the town centre.

Here, the Christmas spirit takes on its full meaning. Throughout the year, the inhabitants and volunteers of the association prepare the decorations to sublimate the elegant Plombières-les-Bains.

Strolling through the streets adorned with lights, you will find Christmas decorations, jewellery, wooden objects, cakes and sweets, gingerbread, honey... And of course, you will not escape all this which organizes a Christmas market in the Vosges: hot chestnuts, bacon and munster cheese sandwiches, apple juice, soups, chourros and mulled wine.

You will then take the time to savor, in all simplicity, the Advent period, the opportunity also to become a child again thanks to the sensations found.
