Combining a market and a fun fair: the Tuileries Christmas Market

Categories : Events, published on : 11/15/21

The excitement of the end of the year celebrations is gradually taking a firm hold in Paris. Festive decorations adorn the streets and fill the shop windows, illuminations spring into colourful life and the first Christmas markets open their little wooden chalets. Among the various Parisian Christmas markets, your Chess Hotel team particularly recommend that of the Jardin des Tuileries. Let us tell you about it...


A Christmas market and fairground in the Jardin des Tuileries

Formerly located at the bottom of the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, the Marché de Noël des Forains (Fairground Christmas Market) has gained new momentum since it moved into the green setting of the Jardin des Tuileries. Situated between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde, from November 20th, 2021 to January 2nd, 2022, this exquisite public park hosts a festive event that combines a traditional Christmas market with all the fun of the fair. Here, amidst a warm and family-friendly atmosphere, you’ll find rides and other fairground attractions alongside the stalls of traders and artisans.


Entertainment, gifts and tasty treats

There’s so much to enjoy at the Marché de Noël des Tuileries. Surrounded by festive decorations and illuminations, you can hop aboard a merry-go-round between sessions of Christmas shopping among the craft stalls. And when you’re ready for a snack, there’s toffee apples and candy floss, roasted chestnuts, gaufres and crêpes to savour as the spicy scents of mulled wine mingle with those of a traditional Christmas market.

Truly festive but on an intimate scale, the Marché de Noël des Tuileries offers a wealth of fun and relaxation for all the family in an exceptional setting just a few minutes' walk from your Chess Hotel. Get the Christmas spirit and immerse yourself in the magical atmosphere of the holiday season!
