Zurich Christmas Market (Christkindlimarkt)
NileGuide Expert tip:
There is a second outdoor Christmas market in the Niederdorf and the Rosenhof with different vendors but lots of glühwein.
Like most German-speaking cities, Zurich host a Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt
in German) during the Advent season, i.e. the weeks leading up to Christmas. The Zurich version is particularly special since it takes place indoors inside the Main Station. One of the highlights of the market is the fifteen-meter Christmas tree complete with 6000 different ornaments. In addition to browsing gift ideas, market visitors can indulge in raclette and glühwein
, the hot mulled wine commonly associated with Christmas markets and the holiday season.
