Mercatini di Natale Strasburgo e Colmar

Visita i mercatini di Natale di Strasburgo, il più antico di Francia, e di Colmar, con i tour Caldana!













Mercatini di Natale a Strasburgo
La regione francese in cui l’usanza dei mercatini di Natale è maggiormente sentita è l’Alsazia, non a caso regione di confine con la Germania, che vanta una tradizione secolare in fatto di Mercatini di Natale. Il Christkindelsmärik di Strasburgo, il mercatino di Natale che si svolge nel centro storico del capoluogo alsaziano, con i suoi 500 anni di storia è il più antico di Francia e uno dei più antichi di tutta Europa. Il Christkindelsmärik nacque nel 1570 quando, sotto l’influenza del protestantesimo, venne creato per soppiantare il mercato di San Nicola. La caratteristica principale di questo mercatino è che ancora oggi mantiene l’autenticità e l’atmosfera natalizia del passato. A fare da cornice al bellissimo mercatino è Place Kléber, la piazza più grande della città, situata vicino alla celebre cattedrale; qui nel periodo pre-natalizio ogni anno vengono allestiti il calendario dell’Avvento e le circa sessanta casette in legno disposte attorno al un grande albero di Natale alto 30 m. che per tradizione viene preso dalle foreste dei monti Vosgi e sotto il quale gli abitanti della città sono soliti lasciare doni per i poveri. Il Mercatino si tinge ancor più di magia quando al tramonto le decorazioni illuminano le facciate storiche dei palazzi della piazza. Col passare degli anni il mercatino si è ingrandito sempre più “invadendo” anche le strade adiacenti alla piazza: Rue de la Comédie, in Place Broglie, in Place de la Gare, in Place Gutemberg e nella Petite France. Nei numerosi stand è possibile acquistare dagli oggetti d’artigianato alsaziani a quelli provenienti da tutto il mondo; ogni anno infatti, l’intera Place Gutemberg è riservata a un differente paese straniero e all’esposizione dei suoi prodotti caratteristici. Negli stand gastronomici si trovano specialità della cucina alsaziana come il fois gras d’oca, le varietà di Choucroute (piatto a base di maiale e crauti), le caramelle e i dolci speziati, soprattutto alla cannella, i porcellini di marzapane, il pan di frutta, il pain d’épices a base di miele, zucchero e cannella, i Kougelhopf (ciambelloni), i Maennelle (omini fatti di pasta brioche decorata), le zuppe fumanti, le torte flambée, le famose pommes d’amour, i vini, le birre d’Alsazia ma soprattutto i famosi Bredele, biscotti tipici alsaziani (una sorta di rivisitazione del Bretzel).
Ricordiamo inoltre altri  due Mercatini di Natale a Strasburgo: il Mercatino di Place d’Austerlitz, con i prodotti della gastronomia e i produttori di vino, e il Mercatino nelle piazze des Meuniers, Marché-Neuf e Benjamin-Zix.

Mercatini di Natale a Colmar
I mercatini di Natale che animano la cittadina alsaziana di Colmar sono davvero unici grazie alla cornice da fiaba costituita dalle case a graticcio completamente illuminate ed addobbate unite allo spettacolo delle bancarelle. Il centro storico è completamente occupato dai cinque Mercatini di Natale: le bancarelle vengono allestite in Place des Dominicains, nel quartiere della Petite Venise e presso il Koïfhus. Da non perdere una passeggiata nella Petit Venise, una delle zone più suggestive della città e un giro sulle piccole imbarcazioni lungo il fiume che scorre tra le vecchie case a graticcio, ancora perfettamente conservate, che caratterizzano Colmar. Non mancano le iniziative che contribuiscono a vivere a pieno la magia del Natale: concerti, letture, incontri con Babbo Natale con invio di letterina nella cassetta della posta gigante e  una pista di pattinaggio illuminata in Place Rapp; un tempo la piazza veniva cosparsa d’acqua così che, col freddo, si trasformava naturalmente in una grande pista di pattinaggio.
