Since 2016, just before the winter break, our members and friends are invited to our beautiful villa for a very special Christmas Party. A delicious Christmas buffet, Glühwein, musical entertainment, lighting decorations and our lottery make this evening the perfect event to enjoy a cozy Christmas atmosphere.

Christmas Party 2017

During the plenary session of December, the European Parliamentary Association opened the doors of its beautiful villa for the second edition of its Christmas party.

For our members, this was an occasion to greet each other before the winter holidays and spend some time together in a truly Christmas atmosphere, with our Christmas tree, musical entertainment and lighting decorations.

The orchestra of the University of Strasbourg performed pieces from all over Europe to create a truly European Christmas atmosphere and two of our partners, the Alsatian distillery “Distillerie Massenez” and the chocolate producer “Les secrets du chocolat”, were also there to present their special cocktails and chocolates.

Christmas Party 2016

During the last plenary session of 2016, our members were invited to Villa Schutzenberger for the first edition of our Christmas Party. Our guests had the chance to enjoy a wonderful and cosy atmosphere in the beautifully decorated rooms, with festive musical entertainment and a delicious buffet with traditional Christmas dishes, Glühwein and cookies. Furthermore, the participants were offered special Christmas presents, sponsored by our partners of the Distillerie Massenez, as well as a lottery with two main prizes: a gift basket from Galeries Lafayette Strasbourg and a pair of sunglasses from the optician Maurice Frères. (To learn more about the partners of the APE, click here.) More than hundred participants truly felt the Christmas spirit and made this evening unforgettable. It will surely be repeated in 2017.
