The magic of Christmas

See you in december 2022 !

A month of magic...

Carcassonne lights up and puts on its winter coat, from the Bastide St Louis to the Medieval City of Carcassonne, to offer you the most beautiful Christmas: thrilling attractions, concerts, street entertainment, scenery and magic lights. Rink, Christmas market, ferris wheel, sledges, carousel ... and a multitude of shows.


While waiting for the 2022 edition, we will take a look back at the 2021 one.


Place Carnot: ice rink, Christmas market and entertainment

Skate around the Neptune fountain on real ice, before strolling towards the chalets of the Christmas Market (which surrounds it) with its gift ideas and gourmet delights. Many other highlights await you there too: animations, make-up workshops to make your children make-up for free, an advent calendar to try to win gifts by drawing lots, without forgetting of course the wanderings of giant robots and touching mascots downtown.

Place Général de Gaulle: Karting & Quad on ice, Rooftop altitude & its cable cars and Christmas Laser Game

Lovers of snow sports and thrills? Meet at Place Général de Gaulle to find ice karting tracks for adults and ice quad bikes for the little ones! Also back: the altitude rooftop with its cable cars to eat with friends or family while enjoying the panoramic view of the City of Carcassonne. A new universe is also taking hold on Place Général de Gaulle: come and challenge yourself at the Christmas Laser Game!

Square Gambetta: ice trail, virtual reality and sound & light show

New ice rink to discover on Square Gambetta: the ice path! Put on your skates and, on real ice, stroll along a magical course that will take you into a magical world.
