From December 13 to 17, 2023, the town of Châtenay-Malabry reopens its Christmas village to offer a host of activities for the festive season. Winter sports, gourmet markets and magical entertainment: the program promises to be magical!

Châtenay-Malabry is celebrating Christmas in style: so, as every year, the Hauts-de-Seine town is inaugurating its Christmas village, from December 13 to 17, 2023, with a great program for young and old alike: Christmas market, free ice rink , ski slope, photos with Santa Claus, free horse-drawn carriage rides... One thing's for sure: the magic is also in the air!

So, to put stars in the eyes of the youngest, Châtenay-Malabry's Christmas village has invited Santa Claus, Saint Nicolas and Père Fouettard to take photos, and has opened a toboggan and ski run, a large free ice rink and a merry-go-round! And don't miss the town's Alsatian Christmas market, where you'll be able to pick up some great craft and gourmet gift ideas. Then, to prolong the magic of Christmas to the very end, take a free horse-drawn carriage tour of the town, watch the fireworks display on Saturday, December 16, or join in the poetic lantern-lit walk on Sunday, December 17. Happy holidays in Châtenay-Malabry!
