The magic and elegance of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Christmas market
Posted in Events le
Paris has a number of absolutely magical Christmas traditions. From the decorated display windows of the Grands Magasins department stores, including those of Bon Marché near the Hotel de la Motte Picquet, to the Yuletide illuminations, the festive season schedule of the theatres and Christmas shopping, you’ll have plenty to keep you busy! During your stay at the Hotel de la Motte Picquet, why not also take the time to browse the Marché de Noël de Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the district’s essential Christmas market?
A unique Christmas market
In the grand tradition of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, the organising committee wanted to make their Christmas market an exceptional event. In a historic setting, close to the Church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, which is one of the few examples of Romanesque architecture in Paris, and on one of the most elegant boulevards in the capital, this Christmas market offers enchantingly picturesque decorations and stalls piled with the wares of top-of-the-range artisans and producers.
Delight yourself at the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Christmas market
At the market, you will find a wealth of great gift ideas and plenty of fine food to grace your Christmas table. You’ll meet a professional photographer who takes magnificent portraits in his pop-up studio, a stall devoted to Tibetan luxury crafts, another dedicated to household linen and artisanal jewellery, and much more. Delicacies such as products made from saffron, champagne, delicatessen foods, and artisanal cheeses will give you plenty of scope for gifts and festive treats. Of course, entertainment is also planned for children, and it seems that Santa Claus has planned to stop there before his big tour...
Find a friendly, refined, warm and festive atmosphere at the Marché de Noël de Saint-Germain-des-Prés. This delightful market will welcome you every day from December 3rd to January 8th, free of charge, from 11:00 to 20:00.
