Christmas is just around the corner, and it all kicks off on November 21!
Starting with the opening of the annual Christkindlimarkt at Zurich Main Station, 150 cabins filled with everything from tea and trinkets to handmade wooden toys and the finest of Swiss traditional foods – raclette and glühwein to keep you warm and toasty while browsing!! This year is also the 20 anniversary of the Christmas Market, so don’t miss out! It’s a chance to get unusual gifts and get your shopping done before the big rush.
As every year, I am most looking forward to seeing the Swarovski Christmas tree decoration with around 7000 dazzling crystals!
Thursday the 21st, is also when Christmas lights are turned on and the whole of Bahnhofstrasse looks fairy tale-like with “Lucy” twinkling all down the street.
Late night shopping as well as December’s Sunday shopping hours have been announced. Giving us all enough time to shop, drink glühwein and fill up on the Christmas spirit!
