The four weekends leading up to Christmas

Every winter, Sierck-les-Bains becomes a veritable magic bubble.

As you go inside you become the hero of a timeless journey. Here you are in Santa’s Grotto where his elves are king, where teddy bears liven up the streets and the craftsmen’s chalets, where great fairy-tale themed lanterns light up Valette Park.

A veritable enchantment for all the family just a few steps away from the famous Ducs de Lorraine castle.

Get together for a treasure hunt, wander through the heart of the mediaeval market, listen to the stories at the Grange aux Contes, admire the stilt-marching band… In this soothing atmosphere so typical of the Three Frontiers Country, Father Christmas is waiting for you, now.

Leave plenty of room for pleasure and gluttony!

From 26th November to 24th December 2022

Spritz-lovers: Forbach will be your go-to destination this year-end. For its festivities, the Moselle town proposes its workshops focusing on Christmas biscuits (as well as a “best amateur Christmas biscuit” competition), and the 6th edition of the Advent Festival.

Although some of the events are clearly placed under the sign of gluttony (with themed snacks), you mustn’t forget the chalets set up in the town centre (including a Qualité MOSL chalet). Families will get to see Father Christmas there, and take part in a multitude of activities – storytelling walks, shows, concerts, ... – or go for a stroll along the Lantern Trail and help the Nutcracker put his heart back together at the time of a Great Treasure Hunt.
