    A museum of local art based in a number of former private residences in Strasbourg, the Alsatian Museum presents a fascinating snapshot of traditional Alsatian life including painted furniture, costumes, local ceramics, toys, and religious or nonreligious images. A number of rooms feature reconstructions of the interiors of buildings typical of the various regions of Alsace (including the farms on the plains, the vineyards or the valleys of the Vosges), or craftsmen’s workshops (such as the forge and the carpentry shop, etc).

    The Musée alsacien (Folk Art Museum) is housed in three contiguous Renaissance houses. The displays capture country life in Alsace in the 18th and 19th centuries: furniture, farming and wine-growing implements, potteries, costumes, popular images (old certificates), Catholic, Protestant and Jewish religious art. Craftsmen's workshops have been re-created, such as the artificial flower maker's, the ropemaker's or the blacksmith's.

Strasbourg, Capital of Christmas

Strasbourg, Capital of Christmas (from 28 November)
In 2020, Strasbourg will be the Capital of Christmas again!
However, due to worsening health conditions, the Mayor of Strasbourg, in agreement with the Prefecture and the Regional Health Agency, have decided to organise it without chalets.
The magic and spirit of Christmas will still reign supreme: illuminations, carolling, exhibits and concerts, and, most importantly, our great Christmas Tree will make the holidays magical.

In Strasbourg, you must wear a face covering throughtout the city, even outside.
