The Holiday season in Paris is such a magical time to be in the city. Many neighborhoods are decorated with twinkly lights, along with intricate designs from businesses and department stores.

Discover all the best things to do in Paris to get in the Christmas spirit!
There are many Christmas Markets scattered throughout the city, all offering different holiday festivities. Mulled wine and roasted chestnuts can always be found, along with raclette, crepes, and chocolat chaud! These are great opportunities to find unique gifts from local French artisans while tasting yummy holiday treats. In the larger markets, there are Christmas trees for sale, incredible decorations, and Santa might even stop by! Here is a list of all our favorite market locations:

Many businesses and department stores go all-out when it comes to decorating for the holiday season. In particular, Galeries Lafayette, Le Bon Marché, and La Samaritan are my favorite places to go to. For more information on department store decorations, see here.
You really can’t miss the holiday lights no matter where you go! Neighborhoods around the Christmas Markets mentioned above will certainly have lights up, but of course, you can’t forget the most famous street in the world— avenue des Champs-Élysées! It will take your breath away. To find more locations of Christmas lights, see here.
Each year, there is also a winter festival in the Tuileries garden, complete with a ferris wheel, an ice skating rink, fair games, and lots and lots of food, of course! This is a really fun activity to do on a chilly afternoon after you have walked around the Tuileries. The ferris wheel offers an incredible view of the city, and the rides are fun at any age! For more details, see here.
If you’re looking for a weekend getaway outside of Paris, but still want to be in the Christmas spirit, then head to the Alsace region! On the border between France and Germany, there are many small cities that are renowned for their Christmas celebrations that take over the whole city! Strasbourg and Colmar are two cities in France that are just a 2-hour train ride away that are known as some of the best holiday destinations. For more info, click here.
