yLa Défense Christmas Market, one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) and most beautiful Christmas Market in the Ile-de-France region, expects you again from November 21 to December 28, 2019 for the Holidays.
For about six weeks, La Défense square will accommodate La Défense Christmas village that covers over 13,000 sqm. In addition to the 350 wooden cabins catching your eyes with their numerous presents ideas, 400 sqm of festive decorations and a whole range of various dishes and restaurants welcome you with open arms.
This year, a giant globe and a 18-m tall lightning Christmas tree are on the menu. Come closer! Like magic, lights go on and off when you walk past them. Near the esplanade and the surrounding areas, they've been designed and created especially for Paris La Défense.
These immersive light installations are inspired by the atypical architecture of the business area, like the Christmas tree reminding us of the façade of the Carpe Diem tower, the decorations of the lampposts have been inspired by the Tour First arrow or the light pedestrian trail, a nod at the Moretti chimney. Sticking to its eco-friendly approach, all the lights have been created with 100% energy saving LED.
On the menu, many animations and the visit of Santa Claus of course. A letter box, a phone, a mini animated village, XXL cuddle toys and temporary places to enjoy an eggnog or a cup of mulled wine expect you.
This year, the village welcmoes a "Christmas Sweater" stand. Sweaters you'll find will make you the star of your office while keeping you all warm and toasty. You can also enjoy advice for your indoor decoration with L'Artisan de Noël. Welcome Christmas spirit to your home.
