France’s fourth largest city becomes a winter wonderland each December for the Toulouse Christmas Market.

The Place du Capitole is transformed from 25 November to 25 December into a European winter festival, with many stalls selling local produce and artisenal gifts, jewellery and food. Enjoy a warming glass of mulled wine or enjoy some of Toulouse’s famous sausages, Aligot Aveyronnais and hot chestnuts as we celebrate the end of the year.

At the heart of the square is a Christmas Village constructed especially for the occasion with traditional chalets, as well as an ice rink.
