Strasbourg Christmas market is one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Europe. Every year, millions of visitors come to Strasbourg to admire the illuminations, to taste the alsatian food and to buy souvenirs in the small wooden chalets.
If you're planning a stay in Strasbourg for the Christmas market, here's my list of the best hotels near Strasbourg Christmas Market to fully enjoy the magic.
Hotel de la Cour du Corbeau ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
La Cour du Corbeau is one of the oldest hotels in Europe and has known famous boarders such as Voltaire, Alexandre Dumas or Frederic the Great. In this magnificent Renaissance building, the rooms bear the marks and names of their famous guests.
The Cour du Corbeau Hotel is located just 550 meters from Strasbourg Cathedral and a 10-minute stroll from Place Kléber. You'll be just a short walk away from the entrance of the 2023 Christmas Market and can relish the beautifully lit Christmas decorations along the Strasbourg quays as you wander.
Hotel and Spa Régent Petite France ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Hotel Régent has an exceptional and luxurious setting with a view of the Ill River. For the anecdote: it was built in place of the old ice houses of Strasbourg of which you can still see some traces of the machines in the lobby.
The Regent Hotel & Spa is the perfect spot to soak in the Christmas Market and experience Strasbourg, right in the heart of Petite France. The hotel is splendidly adorned during the festive season. The Christmas spirit also shines through at the breakfast buffet, from the jam to the bredele (Alsatian cookies) and many other seasonal treats.
Hotel Léonor ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Hotel Léonor is a former mansion in the center of Strasbourg. If the majestic facade has been preserved, the interior has been transformed into a magnificent 4-star hotel with 116 comfortable rooms and suites with refined decoration. The bar is very nice, in a relaxed atmosphere and with beautiful local products (including Christmas beer).
The Leonor Hotel is just a stone's throw away from the Christmas Market, near Kléber Square where Strasbourg's grand Christmas tree stands tall... surrounded by numerous food stalls! The location is prime.
Hotel Les Haras ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Hotel des Haras is set in a remarkable building dating back to the mid-18th century, listed as a historic monument. The impeccable blending of modernity, comfort, and heritage provides a magical stay, which is only enhanced during the festive season. And if you want to take a dip, the indoor pool should please you! The brasserie next door is a great place to eat.
Les Haras Hotel boasts a prime location, offering both tranquility and short walking distance to the city center, and just 5 minutes away from La Petite France. Convenient and affordable parking is available nearby, and Strasbourg's Christmas Market is easily accessible.
Hotel Hannong ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Located on rue du 22 novembre, not far from Galeries Lafayette and Place Kléber where the big fir tree is located, the Hotel Hannong is a hotel with a history: that of a particularly famous former earthenware factory, and of style, that of the Avant-Garde artistic movement embodied by the Horn brothers at the beginning of the 20th century. The hotel itself is a beauty, blending its historic charm seamlessly with modern renovations. If the weather is nice and mild, you can also enjoy the magnificent rooftop!
The location of Hotel Hannong is spot-on, just a stone's throw from Strasbourg's train station and within walking distance of the cathedral, shops, and eateries. You can easily stroll to the Strasbourg Christmas Market 2023 from here.
