In this small historic Alsace town, located 25 km southwest of Strasbourg, in an important agricultural area producing wine and beer, and full of historic buildings, Christmas is a very heartfelt celebration. The town presents itself to visitors full of Christmas lights and festoons. The Obernai Christmas market is the most important Christmas event in this small Alsace village. Obernai is a small town at the foot of the Vosges mountains and its historic part is still partly surrounded by walls and maintains a typically medieval atmosphere that is well suited to the Christmas market.
