Christkindelsm rik is the Alsatian dialect name of the Christmas market in Strasbourg, held annually on the square in front of the Strasbourg Cathedral since 1570.
After threats of a terror attack security was increased and all references to Christianity like the Nativity removed. A terror attack still took place 11 December 2018. Strasbourg is host to the largest Islamic mosque in France. There are 11,000 Islamists on the watch list in France and the threat of new terror attacks is always present. However, people flock to the Christmas Market in Strasbourg as before with 3 million visitors, and the Medieval city is beautifully decorated. The merchants do everything they can to make the visitors happy.
