Food and drink at the market

For foodies, a delicious selection of food and drinks will also be in the spotlight! Choose your stall for a gourmet pit stop to try some aligot (cheesy mashed potato), flammekueche, roasted chestnuts or giant pretzels, known as bretzels. Then warm yourselves up with a comforting hot chocolate or traditional mulled wine, in moderation of course!

Most of the refreshments available are locally sourced. Vegetarians will also find options to enjoy at all refreshment stalls.
