A stroll through the Christmas markets

Published on in Visit Paris

Illuminations, animated shop windows, decorated Christmas trees, shows - nothing is missing from the magic of the festive season in Paris, not even the traditional Christmas markets. If you're staying at the Vice Versa Hôtel, why not discover the Christmas markets on the Left Bank. Traditional, gourmet, elegant and eco-friendly, they're sure to surprise you!


For a gourmet Christmas

Taste Christmas specialities from all over France in one place, skate under the Eiffel Tower, admire one of the most beautiful views of Paris while sipping mulled wine - the Eiffel Tower Christmas Village has it all. From Savoie to Alsace, from Brittany to Provence, treat yourself to a shopping spree full of flavors. You'll also discover many gourmet creations at the lovely Notre-Dame Christmas market. Facing the cathedral, on the banks of the Seine, it invites you to enjoy a whimsical moment in a family-friendly setting.


All the facets of the Left Bank

If you think of the Left Bank as the Latin Quarter and the Nouvelle Vague, then the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Christmas market is for you! In front of the church and along the boulevard, you'll find stands selling decorations, gastronomy and handcrafted creations, carefully selected for their quality and originality. In a completely different spirit, don't miss the Ressourcerie créative Christmas market in the 14th arrondissement. Here, you'll find upcycled jewelry, clothing and unique handmade Christmas decorations. Workshops are also organized on site for you to design your own decorations.

Christmas markets are a must during the festive season. During your stay at the Vice Versa Hôtel, take the time to discover those on the Left Bank. They all have their own touch of magic!
