There is something magical about the holiday season in Paris and there isn’t a better way to bring out the Christmas spirit than to head to one of the city’s “Marchés de Noël”, or Christmas markets.

Christmas markets throughout France originate from the Eastern region of Alsace that has historical roots being traded between France and Germany. The most famous (and largest) Christmas market in France is in Strasbourg, the capital of the region.

Here in Paris, Christmas markets tend to pop up throughout the city from mid-November through the holiday season. Below are some of our favorite markets for shopping and sampling spiced “vin chaud” to warm you up!

Trocadero
There will be 100 stands of gifts and goodies at Place de la Trocadero this year and the kids will love the ice rink and exploring the snow villages.

Avenue des Champs-Elysées
This is the largest market within the city limits and stretches from the métro Champs Elysées-Clémenceau down to Concorde.
