Where is alive the spirit of Christmas and the sweet scent of gingerbread!
Looking for a gift idea, traditional Christmas decorations or just the aroma of mulled wine flavored with cinnamon? The Hotel de la Motte Picquet suggests you to visit the Christmas markets!
The most famous, but also the largest with 200 chalets is the Christmas Village, located on the Champs Elysées. It offers traditional items like figurines, wreaths, wooden toys or pretty woolly hats. A haunting smell of gingerbread in the air immerses ourselves in the warm atmosphere of Christmas.
Every evening, children can watch Santa’s departure by sleigh to the North Pole (several departures per night. the schedule is available at the market) and have the opportunity to submit their letter of wishes in his mailbox.
