Posted in Paris le
As the holidays approach, the City of Lights becomes simply magical. From the illuminated Champs-Élysées to the animated windows of Printemps Haussmann or Galeries Lafayette, from the decorations to the festive shopping, nothing is missing. Not even the traditional Christmas markets! To experience the festive atmosphere in an exceptional setting, the team at the Auteuil Tour Eiffel hotel invites you to discover the Eiffel Tower Christmas market...
An exceptional setting
The Eiffel Tower Christmas Market is held every year on the Champs-de-Mars at the foot of the famous Iron Lady. When you go there from the Auteuil Tour Eiffel hotel, opt for the itinerary that will take you through the Trocadero. From this huge square, you will be able to admire the lights and the fairy tale decor of the Eiffel Tower Christmas market. On the spot, from the Seine to the pillars of the Tower, passing by the magnificent classical facades of the École Militaire, you will be in the heart of a magnificent postcard typically Parisian.
A gourmet market
If the Eiffel Tower Christmas market has all the usual features of the genre, the wooden chalets, the festive music, the animations, it also distinguishes itself by its numerous gourmet chalets. Indeed, the emphasis here is on gastronomy and in particular regional specialties. From Alsace to Savoy, passing through the South-West, treat yourself to a tour of France that will delight your taste buds. It will also be the occasion to imagine tasty gifts or to complete the menu of your New Year's Eve tables. Of course, there is no need to wait for a treat. Hot chocolate, mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, waffles, pancakes and other pretzels can be tasted on the spot as soon as a little hunger is felt.
