A Winter Wonderland
From 25th November to 30th December, Amiens town centre turns into a veritable winter wonderland!
Santa's little elves are hard at work in the 130 chalets that dot the main shopping streets! Some are from France, but others have come all the way from Canada, India and other far-off lands.
You'll find a huge array of handmade crafts and orginal Chrismas gifts for sale!
The Chalets are open every day from 10.30am (2pm on Mondays) to 7.30pm (9pm on Fridays and Saturdays)
Early closing on 25th & 30th December; closed on Christmas Day
IT IS SURE TO DELIGHT THE WHOLE FAMILY
YOUNG AND OLD ALIKE!
Come and meet Father Christmas, take a ride on the merry-go-rounds,skate on the ice rinks and enjoy the waffles and chocolate pancakes ...your little imps will love every minute!
Grown up 'children' might prefer to indulge their taste buds in a little mulled wine or locally made mulled beer, a delicious cheesy and potato tartiflette or some of the other tasty delights.

TO ENSURE THAT YOUR STAY
IS AS PLEASANT AS POSSIBLE...
Here's a good idea: after spending a lovely day enjoying that special Christmassy feeling, head over to Amiens Notre-Dame Cathedral in time for the amazing light show which is shown every evening at 7pm.
Once the sun goes down, 15 years since the first “Chroma” light and sound display began, come and watch Notre-Dame d’Amiens be bathed in a brand new array of colour.
Designed by the Société Spectre Lab, with a soundtrack by the Start-Rec Agency, the original and unprecedented “Chroma” display will take you on an exceptional journey that overflows with emotion. Fascinating and emblematic scenes will play out before your eyes upon the Gothic architecture. Admire the cathedral’s mysterious and enigmatic façade and let yourselves be taken on a sensory journey and be swept away by its incredible beauty.
