It's Christmas Timein Toulouse

To enjoy the Christmas atmosphere, head for Toulouse! The Pink City becomes a city of lights with its illuminations and its Christmas markets.

The Christmas Market

If there is one place where you can find the festive spirit while stocking up on gift ideas, it's definitely the Christmas market! It may be getting cold, but the night is brightening up... Christmas is fast approaching! The Christmas markets are back, full of sweets and colourful gifts. For those who love the festive season, going to the Christmas market and wandering from stall to stall is a must for the festive period.

In Toulouse and the surrounding area, there is something for everyone. On the Place du Capitole, the majestic and enchanting façade of the town hall serves as a backdrop to the Christmas Village and its traditional chalets all decked out in white. Until 26th December, the Place du Capitole is decorated in its most beautiful finery to create an ambiance worthy of the end of year celebrations. A real Christmas Village is being built in the heart of this major gathering place for the people of Toulouse, with over a hundred stallholders ready to awaken all our senses.

You'll find all kinds of delicacies, decorations, accessories, jewellery and toys. Can you smell the mulled wine tingling in your nostrils, or the melted cheese, chocolate and spices in the air? Sample the star dish of the market: the Aligot Aveyronnais.

The community market on the Allées Jules-Guesde invites you to shop sustainably. The smell of hot chestnuts and roasted chocolates adds to the air of winter delights. Combine these aromas with sounds and songs, fairy lights, and maybe even Santa's laughter... Ho! Ho! Ho!
