THE CALENDAR OF ADVENT

From December 1st to 24th, every evening at 5 pm

Every evening at 5 p.m., the street lighter comes down the main staircase of the town hall to open an Advent calendar window.

Then he lights a candle from the Advent wreath erected there.

A mysterious voice then tells a short story appealing to the Saint of the day or the image hidden behind the window that has just opened.

Thus, each showcase makes you discover the religious heritage, the rites and customs of Alsatian Christmas as well as the legendary characters of our region.
