If being taken aback by the outrageous Christmas decorations in the Galleries Lafayette isn’t enough to get you into the holiday mood, you may want to pay a visit to the Christmas market along the Champs-Elysées.

When to Visit

The Champs-Elysées Christmas market is one open significantly earlier than the other Parisian Christmas markets- perfect for those of you who simply can’t wait for Christmas to arrive.

What to Expect

The variety of amazing lights that welcome you as soon as you walk out of the Metro station mean that you instantly feel like you’re in some sort of Christmas rom-com film, as you walk amongst the wooden chalets, enjoying your mulled wine.

The stalls offer so much variety: as well as the impressive range of food and sweets, you are also offered some great gift ideas, with some great hand-crafted stuff. There is also several options for kids, such as separate family areas, as well as games such as slides, and even an ice skating rink.Christmas Champs Elyseess

Other Activites

Whilst you are there, you can also have a ride on the Ferris wheel, for another breath-taking view of the Champs-Elysées and Paris itself.  Don’t be put off by the queue- it moves very quickly.

All in all, this market is a sure-fire way to help turn even the biggest Scrooges into the biggest fans of the holiday festivities. Champs Elysees Christmas
