Where we started our tour with an oysters based aperitif – or more exactly, I watched hubby having his aperitif as I don’t like oysters…
After which, ready we were to wander among the wooden stalls!
They settled the Christmas market all around the famous Cathedral (apparently, the previous years, the market was in another square & it was much bigger. They changed the location for security reasons. I’ve never been there before, but I found it was very nice nevertheless).
Plus if you go there with children, there’s a big area for them to play, a little train & even some ponies!
We went for a more grown-ups’ activity & visited the magnificent Cathedral instead.
As we re-emerged on the market, it was lunch time. As the tradition on a Christmas market, we had sausages, mulled wine & churros!
Moreover, have you seen the blue sky in the pictures?? We’ve been so lucky, we’ve been blessed by the most gorgeous winter sun for visiting a Christmas market!!
We wandered a bit more at the Christmas market & in Reims as well.
Just before we were leaving, the music band arrived, it was so fun as instead of playing traditional Christmas music, they played their version of Rihanna or Lady Gaga songs! 😉
& a last thing, if you go to Reims Christmas market, just be aware that you can directly write to Santa Claus!!! :))
