The competition was hosted by the “Best European Destination” organisation based in Brussels, focusing on promoting tourism and culture in Europe.
Nearly 72,000 people voted online in the competition, which included 15 participating locations around Europe.
Strasbourg in first place took 23.4 percent of the votes (16,759), putting it well ahead of second place Aachen, Germany with 13,465 votes, followed by Vienna, Austria with 10,242 votes.
The market city locations were evaluated based on their popularity, value for money and all-round Christmas spirit.
