A medieval city with a colourfully detailed old quarter and a complex and famous industrial history, Mulhouse makes a number of claims to fame, the two most compatible ones being its fabric production heritage and its evocative, traditional Alsatian Christmas market. Running from mid-November through to the end of December, the market provides a vibrantly pretty festive shopping experience, since the old-fashioned wooden stalls and the buildings surrounding the market are draped in the city's newest and brightest Christmas fabrics and decorated with green and red canopies and bows. Aside from high quality fabrics, you can also purchase gifts, decorations, regional treats and delicious mulled wine.

It's not clear if they're doing the same market as last year again is it - I've been looking for information about it too.

The Christmas market finishes on the 29th in 2010 - so you will get a chance to check it out.

It's in the middle of town Place de la Réunion and Place des Victoires, but I don't know where the Bristol is, sorry.

There's a good art museum.
