Lille  Christmas Market 2016

Joyeux Noël et une Bonne Année

Date :  November 18th to December 30th 2016

On Place Rihour, more than 80 chalets teem with gift ideas, nativity figurines, Christmas decorations and festive food.

Its height of 50 metres ensures guests have a stunning view of the city! The Big Wheel turns every day from 18th November to the beginning of January, starting at midday and going on late into the night…
