December in Zurich

December is upon us! That’s right, it’s the last month of the year, so make it count.

Now – December 24

Christmas Markets

The Xmas spirit can be felt everywhere in Zurich – from the street decorations, to the singing and of course to the markets. These markets are the perfect venue for spontaneous or planned meet-ups after work to enjoy a warm glass of gluweine, a fondue and clearly some shopping.

Below is a list of the top ones in Zurich:

Zurich Christmas Market Bellevue – until December 24th

My favorite market is back! For those familiar with the Street Food Festival, the founders’ Katja and Vania’s style have done it again. This year’s market is distinguished by its special treats and surprises in the likes of a fairly large ice skating rink and a delightful Fondue Stübli in the cosiest Chalet ever especially constructed for this event.

Location: Sechselaeutenplatz in front of the Opera House

Zurich Christmas Market at Hauptbahnhof – until December 24th

The glitter and shine of the Swarovski crystals may blind you! This market was crowned as Europe’s biggest indoor markets with a stunning 15m tall Swarovski Christmas Tree and 150 booths.

Location: Hauptbahnhof, Zurich’s main train station


Christmas Market by the Singing Christmas Tree – until December 23rd 

Listen to the beautiful choirs as you treat yourself to delicious treats.

Dörfli Christmas Market  – until December 24th

Location: Hirschenplatz in the Niederdorf
