France’s ‘Capital of Christmas’ looks like a real-life nativity scene at this time of year. You’ll find 300 traditional market stalls crowding the city’s central squares. That's a lot of them! I would love to see this one.

Something I have always wanted to do is visit the Christmas markets in France and Germany! Along with the beautiful lights, I would love to wander around looking at all the beautiful hand crafted items sipping on a delicious warm wassail!

A quick 2-hour train ride from Paris transports you to the capital of France’s Grand Est region, more commonly known as Alsace. With an architectural heritage marked by Franco-Germanic influences, a visit to the city of Strasbourg feels equally exciting and exotic. Known for its cuisine, taste local specialties including choucroute garnie and tarte flambée at one of many eateries in the picturesque Petite France neighborhood. With its medieval half-timbered houses, cobblestone streets, and canals, this quartier resembles a village within a city. The famous astronomical clock within the grand Gothic Cathédrale Notre-Dame comes alive with daily shows, while part way up the 142-meter high spire you can catch views of the Rhine River. Visit during the winter holidays and you’ll discover the Strasbourg Christmas market, one of the oldest and most famous in Europe.

  • Most Beautiful Christmas Markets in Europe! For me, nothing screams more #winter than a beautiful nice decored Christmas market and some hot wine! Here I show you some of them. Of course, I have to be biased and say the Prague one is the most beautiful one! But let's check the rest! <3
  • Winter Wonderland Wish List I love traveling in the summer when the sun is out and cities are bustling, but there are some places that need to be seen in winter for you to experience their true beauty. These are some of the places that I am longing to go for a winter getaway! Fair warning: festive lighting and a dusting of snow are my reasons for all of these places :) #seekerchallenge
