December in Épinal

Tourist: the Tourism Office of Épinal, heart of the Vosges, thinks of you in December!

A walk in Épinal in December, pictures

In December, a wind of magic blows over the Cité des Images. The Place des Vosges welcomes a huge twinkling Christmas tree. The city streets are lighting up with Christmas wreaths and decorations. Bakers and pastry chefs are also meeting for this joyful year ending, as the delicious scent of gingerbread and chocolate takes over the Cité des Images.

A drawing contest, for children, on the theme of Saint Nicholas

This year for the Saint Nicholas, the Tourism Office is organising a drawing contest, from the 15th of November to the 10th of December for all children from 5 to 10. They will be asked to draw Saint Nicholas as well as they can. Three great surprise-baskets and a special heart-stopper will be awarded to the best productions, which will be chosen by the jury of the Tourism Office and their partners.
