The famous Strasbourg Christmas Fair returns to the big door this year, after last year’s modest edition due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Strict epidemiological and security measures are being introduced because of the risk of spreading the infection and terrorist attacks, local leaders said across the city along the border with Germany. Numerous Christmas fairs will reopen in France, Germany and other parts of Europe.
The most famous Germans in Nuremberg, Munich and Berlin open in November and December, although some will require a kovid certificate to enter.
Last year it was held in a modest edition, in a smaller space and without stands. The oldest fair in France, which is being held for the 451st time, will run from 26 November to 26 December.
In previous years, it attracted two million guests. Hundreds of police, soldiers and other security services will protect visitors in the city center.
Guests will be required to wear masks and keep their distance, and in the event of an increase in the number of infected people, they will be required to show a confirmation of vaccination, a coronavirus or a negative test.
If the situation does not calm down, food and drink consumption will be limited, organizers said.
