What can u say - the lights, the designer shops, the famous landmarks? It is wonderful and to top it off, the Christmas Market adds a fun component to the hustle and bustle of the CHamps-Élysées. This cannot be missed and there is something for everyone from young to old.

We visited mid December. There were lovely stalls lit up and with a variety of merchandise both sides of the street, the bare trees were lit with white lights and speakers in the trees broadcast Christmas carols. It looked beautiful and we ended our last night in Paris with a champagne from one of the stalls. Try it, you'll love... More

It's a traditional spot in Paris, and every tourist should spend some time walking there. You can stop in many luxury shops, take photos from the nice architecture, or just have a nice expresso or treats in a nice cafeteria. Some will love, some will not find it that great. This is my case. It's a neat avenue, for a... More

Spanning both sides of the street for a good few blocks from Place de la Concorde up the Champs Elysees, there’s a huge number of vendors - including food, drink (incl. gluehwein – a particularly excellent choice if the weather is cold), souvenirs, gifts, and an ice rink. After dark, the festive lights of the Champs Elysees make for excellent... More

It was manic, mainly due to the endless Christmas market! Would definitely recommend walking from the Lourve to the Arc de Triomphe but I think it would have been more enjoyable without the Christmas market. Couldn't enjoy the walk as you were constantly watching out for people bumping into you!

I happened upon this Christmas Market by chance while walking to the Arc de Triumph. Typical gastro fare, gift stalls and music with typically Parisien atmosphere. Best market I have visited in 2014.
