An edition awaited by all! 

After the necessarily adapted edition of last year, Haguenau and his country invites to experience a Alsatian Christmas, authentic and friendly! The Christmas festivities will make a comeback from 26 next November !

From Haguenau, city of Barberousse, via Bischwiller, Brumath and up to the Val de Moder, discover Alsatian Christmas traditions. Christmas in the Land of Mysteries goes to meet St Nicolas, lulls to the sounds of the music of our childhood, shares its smells and spices, gives you a taste of the many Alsatian specialties (bredele, mulled wine, dampfnudel ...) and embarks on a busy journey experiences of all kinds. Workshops, tales and legends, exhibitions or even guided tours promise to beautiful encounters and unique moments in the north of Alsace !
