Zürich’s Christmas market

Mike MacEacheran,

The 18th Zürich Christmas market is bigger than ever. Located beneath the tinsel-wrapped arches of the main train station, this is a one-stop shop for that special Swiss Christmas feeling. Alpine chalets sell handmade wooden toys, seasonal gifts, mulled wine and gingerbread, while a million-dollar tree sparkles with 7,000 Swarovski crystals – the perfect backdrop for a luxury Christmas shopping spree. The Christkindli is one of the largest indoor markets in Europe, with more than 400 stands stocking everything from traditional hand puppets to Swiss raclette, a melted round cheese and a local favourite. The market runs until 24 December from 11am until 9pm – and is open later from Thursday to Saturday.

Christkindlimarkt, Bahnhofplatz, 8001 Zürich
