Les Lumières de Noël

20 editions, 20 years when in the approach of the Christmas, Montbéliard adorns himself with its most beautiful attires to welcome the Lights of Christmas.

Former principality wurtembergeoise, the city dives with enjoyment into its history and its traditions. The heart of the town begins then beating more hardly. At nightfall, streets and placettes are illuminated with one thousand brightness. Facades send back the light as by delight.

At feet of the temple St Martin, the atmosphere is more intimate. The market of Christmas livens up. Balls, festoons, candies, mulled wine, Christmas crib figures, toys nothing misses in the tradition. We get drunk on delicate smells of spices and on cinnamon.
But this year spices make stronger, the flavors are different … In the yard of the museum Beurnier, Peru is there. Craft, gastronomy, everything is there, joyful and colored.

Eyes open wide. The guests stroll delighted, as packed by a cloud of salty or sweet savours, exotic smells and dance music.

From November 25th, 2006 till December 24th, 2006 to Montbéliard.
