Pays de Saint-Louis, région des 3 Pays
Christmas without borders in Saint-Louis and the Trois Pays region
The Three Countries Region is different because it is located in the very south of Alsace, between France, Germany and Switzerland. Here, we share a common destiny of three countries with the Rhine as a common thread. Europe is experienced on a daily basis by taking the best from each country. In the end, borders are only a view of the mind and above all an opportunity to build bridges from one country to another.
The month of December is an opportunity for Swiss, Germans and Alsatians to get out of their homes and warm up with a good mulled wine at one of the many events, large or small, that mark the entire Advent period. We often hear all languages spoken at the small Christmas market in Saint-Louis which is a nice rallying point to play leapfrog with the borders. All you have to do is get on a bus or a tram and in 15 minutes you can be in the heart of Basel and admire one of the most beautiful and oldest Christmas markets in Switzerland .
