Christmas lights and market Montpellier during Christmas and New Year holidays

Christmas lights and market

Experience the festive atmosphere in Montpellier from 6pm on 26 November! From the Comédie opera house to the boulevard Louis Blanc, all the way to the Halles des 4 saisons, the illuminations are putting Montpellier in the festive mood.

Place de la Comédie and Christmas market

Montpellier will make you love the winter.

The weather here is mild, even in the middle of December, so there’s no question of getting cooped up. The walk begins on Place de la Comédie, in front of the illuminated Opéra Comédie. Not far from there, near the Gaumont cinema, stands a majestic, well-decorated christmas tree. It’s sure to impress and make you the star of social networks.

A quick selfie and you’ve got a record number of likes on Instagram with #montpelliernow. In fact, if you’re into photography, get ready to pull out your camera. With its facades, narrow streets and little squares, Montpellier is a very photogenic place.

Head for the Place du Peyrou, where the Christmas market  is taking place as part of the Hivernales event, which will be sprucing up the Place de la Comédie.

Stalls, a Languedoc cot, gift ideas (crafts, decorations, textiles, jewellery, accessories and, of course, gastronomy), local produce and, above all… Santa’s horse-drawn carriage!

All accompanied by a glass of mulled wine!*

*Drink with moderation


Among the new features for 2023

A giant 12-metre Christmas tree will take pride of place on the forecourt of the Town Hall.
A giant 11-metre-long hashtag – #NoëlàMontpellier – will travel around the city to be photographed and shared on social networks.
A new giant surprise structure will be set up on Place des Martyrs-de-la-Résistance.
