Where the gourmets go

Obernai: heaven for foodies! In a fairytale setting, almost forty chalets take up residence in front of the Belfry for the greater delight of your taste buds. Here, expect nothing but delicious treats. And while tasting the spice bread, foie gras, bredele and Christmas beer, you’ll have the ideal opportunity to meet producers and craftspeople who will take great pleasure in sharing their passion and know-how.

Whiffs of spice bread and wafts of mulled wine delicately fill the streets. And it has to be said, the real star of the Christmas market is that typical Obernai mulled wine - concocted with white wine and simmered to perfection in a huge cauldron. Its unique flavour is another essential element in the magic of a true Alsatian Christmas!
