The Christmas Village at the Place d'Erion is made up of 125 chalets offering beautiful seasonal gifts, decorations and festive delicacies. There is a variety of street entertainment including carol singers, jazz bands and magicians. In his special chalet, Father Christmas is also on hand each day to delight the children.

Reims is where the first French Christmas celebration was reportedly held; in 496 three thousand warriors were baptised on Christmas Day. The city is rich in noble heritage and known for being the coronation place of French kings for hundreds of years. A visit to the UNESCO World Heritage sites linked to these royal occasions will fuel your festive senses even more
