the German Christmas market

Don’t get me wrong, Montreal’s Christmas Market is pretty awesome, but they have nothing on Quebec City. Their German Christmas Market which runs from November 23rd until December 23rd will have you feeling like your in the streets of Europe. Located right in the heart of Old Quebec, it offers all its visitors a unique and unforgettable experience. What can you expect? A Winter Wonderland covered in beautiful decorations and a great selection of succulent German treats, one of a kind Christmas gifts, choral singing, and indoor and outdoor performances.
