The Champs-Elysées Seasonal Christmas Market
The Champs-Elysées Christmas Market returns to Paris this November. Festive lights and installations will illuminate the Champs-Elysées Christmas Village. Visitors can expect to see up to 200 authentic chalets, made in the Vosges, lining the famous avenue– from the Rond-point to the Place de la Concorde.
The chalets showcase regional, traditional products, which are guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit. The market is the perfect location to enjoy an evening with friends and family: purchase beautiful gifts, sample sweets and chocolates, go ice skating. A 4,000 m² ice rink will be open and visitors can warm up afterwards with a festive mulled wine or glass of bubbly. Don’t forget to finish the evening with a ride on La Grande Roue, where the lights and sights of Paris can be enjoyed from above.
Don’t miss the Grande Parade on the 1st of January; the Carnival passes through the Christmas Village on the Champs-Elysées 10am to 6pm.
Entry to the market is free to all!
