Concept 1900 is pleased to present its Christmas carousels, currently entertaining visitors all over the world and creating a magically festive atmosphere at Christmas markets.

“After a ride on a carousel, that will always stay a symbol of magic, good spirits and festivity, you can revive a childish spirit still living inside of you,” says the French company.


Visitors and locals alike are enjoying a stunning Christmas market in Liseberg, where a Concept 1900 carousel takes centre stage. This installation is a sparkling carousel with golden and white elements evoking a sense of winter wonder.

This year in France, Concept1900 has introduced a unique, fairy-tale style ride. This reindeer attraction takes place at the Christmas market in Colmar. This ride has 12 mechanical arms, providing up and down movements, with a sleigh and reindeer character at the end of each. The design is also adaptable for different seasons, as alternative characters can be installed on the arms.

“Take a flight with the reindeers like Santa Claus flying in the sky,” says the company. “Guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit!”

Meanwhile, at the biggest Christmas market in Paris at the Jardin des Tuileries, visitors can enjoy the traditional 1900 carousel, echoing the magic of the French capital during the festive season. Shoppers can also take a Christmas “souvenir” Instagram picture on the carousel.
