The Enchanted Forest

The Enchanted Forest stages the tales and legends of Sundgau through several scenes created in several sites in the city center and in the Altkirch park.

A fantastic universe, created and scenographed by the visual artist Anne Zimmermann in the heart of the City of Altkirch, which resolutely goes off the beaten track. The magic of lights, the strangeness of the sounds and new technologies contribute to enhancing the heritage and cultural identity of Sundgau in an original way during the end of the year celebrations.
La Forêt Enchantée is a daring and contemporary alternative to the traditional Christmas markets, which invites you to celebrate Christmas in an original way but always in a warm, friendly and festive atmosphere specific to this time of year.

Many activities are offered as part of the Enchanted Forest: a varied program of concerts and street shows every weekend, including the Grand Procession de la Saint Nicolas which opens the festivities, the Craftsmen's Christmas Village, an authentic small Christmas market, and every day an outdoor skating rink, exhibitions at the Sundgauvien Museum and the Rhenish Center for Contemporary Art and the Firefly Cave on the Harry Potter theme.
Discoveries of the Enchanted Forest are organized by the Tourist Office with a storyteller, Patrick Coulon, who tells these stories that were passed down from generation to generation.
