A quick guide to the pop-up skating rinks and Christmas markets of Paris.

As is traditional in the run-up to the holiday season, the ice rinks and Christmas markets are making their comeback throughout Paris. Whether you prefer gliding across the ice or browsing the stalls of the festive markets, the Parisian winter promises plenty of good times with family or friends.


The Eiffel On Ice pop-up rink


From December 15th to January 3rd, a very special open-air Christmas ice rink will be set up at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. Located on the Champs de Mars, the Eiffel On Ice skating rink offers free admission for all and, of course, a stunning view of the Iron Lady towering above while you glide along on your blades. If you forget to bring your skates, don’t worry, because the rental is set at a price of only 6 euros. Then, once you’ve worked up an appetite with all that exercise and fresh air you can wander over to the on-site chalet, where you can treat yourself to lovely mulled wine, toasted marshmallows and even raclettes and tartiflettes. What a great way to have fun with your friends, family or special one.


The Alsatian Christmas Market at Paris Gare de l'Est


During the month of December, the Gare de l'Est railway hub puts on its Christmas clothes and welcomes the famous Alsatian Christmas Market. This event attracts artisans and producers from far and wide to offer the traditional local products of the Alsace region for free tastings. Come and discover the many stalls groaning under the weight of gourmet foodstuffs as the tempting aromas of Alsace waft over you. Come and enjoy Alsatian specialities such as Männele brioches and gingerbread, potato pancakes, Munster, Kougelhopf and sauerkraut, and take plenty home to grace your Yuletide table. Finally, to top it all off, baskets of Alsatian products can be won daily and the market this year is offering 500 St Nicholas gingerbreads to an association helping children in Paris.


The Christmas Market of Paris Notre-Dame


From December 15th to 24th, 2017, you can discover original and varied handicraft and gastronomic delights at the foot of Notre Dame Cathedral, in the 5th arrondissement of the capital. Skilled artisans and craftspeople gather in this scenic Christmas market location to present a wide range of goods. Here you’ll find everything from jewellery and textiles, woodcraft, metalwork, ceramics, calligraphy and painting to regional gastronomy products such as sausages, foie gras, macarons and cheeses. The atmosphere is warm and inclusive there is live entertainment in the form of street musicians, puppet shows, drawing competitions, children’s storytellers and, of course, Santa himself, who will be delighted to have his picture taken with your kids. Meanwhile, parents can indulge themselves with a warming tot of mulled wine before carrying on gift hunting.
