Christmas in Paris
Discover the magic of Christmas in France with its cultural traditions and festivities.
Traditional Christmas markets in France are part of its history. Christmas just wouldn't be the same without the traditional wooden chalets, local produce and festive gifts - it’s truly an experience not to be missed!
A trip to explore the Christmas markets is a great way to introduce your pupils to French language and culture.
Savour the smells of fresh gingerbread and pretzels; find traditional decorations and take the opportunity to buy something special for someone back home – or just for yourself!
Add a visit to Disneyland ® Paris to your itinerary and experience the magic of the special parades and events at this time of year. And after a busy day out and about, relax in our comfortable Château de Grande Romaine on the outskirts of Paris and enjoy the warm welcome of our centre staff.
Your excursion programme includes a visit to a Christmas market with a PGL guide to help ensure you get the best from your visit. There's also the option to visit Disneyland Paris and enjoy the unique seasonal events and parades. There are further seasonal activities such as theatre visits and other sights of Paris with a seasonal twist – including the Eiffel Tower lit up like a Christmas tree!
Adventure: The PGL Bonus
If you have time, why not try out one of our unique PGL adventure sessions in the grounds of our Château? They’re a great opportunity to let off steam and for team building.
