The 2011 Christmas Village is unveiled on Port Hercule

Monaco Christmas Village, a “19th century Christmas Village,” transports the public to a little 19th century English village in the heart of Monaco.  The attractions include numerous activities, workshops, traditional wooden chalets and food stalls offering English specialities.

The skating rink takes over from the swimming pool

As every year, the Stade Nautique Rainier III is being transformed into a skating rink, to the great delight of adults and children, and will offer skating, electric go-karting and shows on ice.

It’s expected to be very popular with the public and is open from 5 December 2011 to 8 January 2012 – and is being specially extended until the Epiphany weekend!
