Ecomusée d'Alsace

At the Ecomusée d'Alsace, the houses in the Christmas village are dressed in warm and authentic Christmas decorations that take you back to the family traditions of Christmas in the past. Colours, flavours, smells... awaken the childlike soul of the young and old.

Let yourself be amazed by an exhibition of old teddy bears and scenes full of mischief and tenderness. You can find the baker bears, the mechanic bears, the bear infirmary, etc.

An amazing exhibition traces the history of decorated trees, the most emblematic of our Christmas traditions. Did you know that in the early 19th century, Christmas trees were hung from the ceiling?
