Ottmarsheim’s municipality organise his famous Christmas market around the millennium and octagonal abbey church from 9 to 11 December 2016. This market will celebrate its 15th anniversary. It will be more extended than the previous ones, with new enlightenments and sheds on all the site.

Then your visit of Ottmarsheim’s Christmas market will be more pleasant. Excepted the traditional carousel on Abbey church’s esplanade and concerts in the church, exhibitors’ sheds will be on all the site from City Hall to media library and also in the park.

This park will be brought to light specifically. A route with fairy tales told by artists will make travelling visitors in the magic world of stories and legends: “Once upon a time…” is the theme of this edition. New in 2016: an outdoor concert with a children chorus and an indoor concert will occur during the official inauguration. A large living nativity scene will be there near the church. At dusk, enlighten, you will listen the story of Christmas crib. The media library will welcome creative classes and small shows about fairy tales and legends. Let’s carry away in this fairy world: from gifts to buy to characters as different as Santa Claus on his sledge or storytellers with mischievous eye!
