Christmas markets

Since the 14th century when they first appeared in Germany, Christmas markets have become a popular event throughout Europe. Not to be missed from mid-November onwards, they can be found in several districts of Paris. 

Prettily decorated wooden chalets sell Christmas decorations, gourmet food products, arts and crafts and ideas for Christmas presents, plus there are stalls with food and drink … perfect for taking a break and getting warmed up.
