The Magic of Christmas, Jardin des Tuileries

With over 120 chalets setting up in the Jardin des Tuileries, this is the must-visit Christmas market in Paris. You’ll find an ice rink, hundreds of shops and plenty to keep little ones entertained. Expect to pay a little more for your Christmas crafts but when the location is this good we doubt you’ll care. Snuggle up in one of the bars and enjoy a mulled wine with a side of Christmas carols.

Notre-Dame Christmas Market

Just across the Seine from the iconic cathedral you’ll find one of the most picturesque Christmas markets in Paris. Here you’ll be able to stock up on French wine, cheese and all the other good stuff that the Parisians are known for.

Christmas Market at the City Hall

Head to the spare directly in front of the City Hall and you’ll discover a winter wonderland right in the heart of the city. Come hungry and enjoy the French delicacies like tartiflette which is a deliciously creamy cheese and potato bake with garlic and onions. This isn’t the biggest market on the list but we like the low-key atmosphere and find it perfect for young children.
