A perfect place to indulge in the Christmas spirit with your family.
Awaited all year long
Kids in Lyon aren't the only ones who eagerly await Yuletide. And so the city has made a special effort since 1997 to organise Christmas markets that get underway at the end of November and run through December. Coloured lights, puppets for kids, local delicacies, and of course spicy mulled wine. And more than a hundred stands offering a variety of ideas for nifty Christmas gifts. There are two primary markets: a covered market in Croix-Rousse and a larger open-air market in the central Place Carnot. If you happen to be in Lyon when these markets are in town, they're truly magical!
