Christmas Markets : the secrets of an incredible success | M6 | Zone Interdite
The Christmas market in Strasbourg is the oldest and busiest with two million visitors on average each year . The Klein family owns , besides their charcoal, two chalets in order to sale some foie gras, truffles, candied chestnuts and sauerkraut. They are located in the gold square of the market, the most profitable sales zone. The tradition of Christmas decorations extends throughout Alsace. In their village, Nathalie and Xavier are taking part of the “most beautiful illuminated house” contest. Now Paris also has its Christmas market at the instigation of “kingof showmen” Marcel Campion. From the roundabout of the Champs-Elysées to the Place de la Concorde, nearly 180 artisans chalets are installed, leading to the Ferris wheel.
