Usually, every year, for the Holidays, the world’s most beautiful avenue looks like a Christmas village. With the beautiful lights, it’s a moment very awaited by tourists and Parisians. Last year, Champs-Elysées Christmas market has been cancelled and it surprised everyone, leaving us dissatisfied and with no other alternatives to enliven this festive period.
This year, we won’t go far since the famous Christmas market will take place at the Jardin des Tuileries. From November 24, 2018 to January 6, 2019, head to the Place de la Concorde to discover a redesigned Christmas Market sweetly called “La Magie de Noël” [The Magic of Christmas].
Discover the Tuileries Christmas Market:
Indeed, this year, Paris biggest Christmas Market is more focused on quality. As much for the decor than the products available. Many French produces expect you with open arms. Gastronomy comes from all over France and merry-go-rounds and animations we love are back and even more beautiful to delight families. The whole in a wonderful setting of the Jardin des Tuileries, making the stroll even more pleasant.
Let’s not forget that this Christmas market is Paris most visited market. It welcomes from 13 to 15 million visitors during the season. And whatever people say, it’s an attraction very expected by walkers looking for a nice stroll and Christmas magic.
On the spot, we discover no fewer than 120 wooden cabins offering lovely treats for yourself or someone else, crafts and nice gift ideas.
This Christmas Market aims at being festive: 18 French craftsmen (cabinetmaker, glass blower...) and 14 designers from Paris Chamber of Commerce will show you all their know-how.
Also on the menu, many merry-go-rounds such as the flying chairs, the ghost train, mazes or the train as well as a 50-m Ferris wheel to look over the French capital during the holiday season.

In the heart of thie Christmas market set within the Jardin des Tuileries, also takes place a giant 1,200-sqm skating rink.

If you look up, you may see Santa Claus' sled... A unique attraction in France. And go discover a gourmet market with 20 cabins gathering 20 French regions.
Among the good ideas of the market, a Wine Bar and several restaurants are on the menu to treat you. Let's have a stopover before or after a skating session to envoy a delicious board to share or a nice coffee with gourmet desserts at the Vins de France, the wine bar behind the Ferris Wheel.
Unless the La Moule Chic' menu whets your appetite! Under its huge tent able to house an entire family or your friends squad, this cozy and comfortable restaurant offers nice and very French dishes such as the Beef Bourguignon, the Veal blanquette and even the famous fresh mussels.
