Strasbourg timbered buildings at Christmas

Christmas market school trip to Strasbourg, France

The buzzing Christmas market coupled with the cities rich history dating back to the 1570's, will immerse you and your students in the great culture. It is perfect for French and German language skills due to being on the boarder of Germany making it a bilingual city by nature.

  • Key stage 2 – 16+
  • Nov-Dec

A Christmas market school trip to Strasbourg presents teachers with the unique opportunity to combine French and German cohorts on the same trip thanks to the charming city's position just 2.5 miles from the German border. With more students travelling on the trip, the cost of transport and accommodation gets spread further, meaning an overall reduced per person price.

You'd struggle to dream up a more idyllic setting for your Christmas market school trip than the enchanting backdrop of Strasbourg's medieval half-timbered houses, labyrinth of narrow streets and waterways. Spend just a few hours here and you'll be convinced you've stepped back in time and landed in a world straight from the pages of a fairytale.

So, band together, rally up your classes and set off on an epic European Christmas bonanza!
