Holidays In Quebec City

How to spend the greatest Holidays in Quebec City

The Holidays are, for many of us, the opportunity to return home and celebrate with family.

My hometown being Quebec City, this is where I love to go back during this festive time because everything seems straight out of a Christmas movie!

As you probably already know from this Winter photos article or this one about the German Christmas Market, I love winter in Quebec City!

Here is some inspiration if you ever spend time in Quebec like me during the Holidays. And you, how do you celebrate the Holiday season?


Arrive at the Gare du Palais, because it’s pretty magical! You will have the chance to arrive to this station if you arrive by train or by bus

Eat a Greenpoint pizza from Nina Pizza Napolitaine (or any on the menu, because they’re all good!) Tip: Ask for a seat at the bar to see the pizzaiolo in action and warm up near the wood oven

Even if it’s Winter, I recommend this great drink at Nektar Caféologue: the Cold Brew! If you are adventurous, try the “fudge” version
