Christmas Market

Rated one of the best Christmas Markets in Switzerland year after year, this market puts Stein am Rhein on the map.

by Michelle Bailat-Jones

Throughout December this picturesque town on the Rhine, with its half-timbered houses covered in ornate frescoes, transforms into a ‘Maerlistadt’ or ‘Fairytale Town’ with magical Christmas lights and themed decorations throughout the town. There is a fairy trail winding through the Old Town and stalls of handicrafts and treats. The festivities are joined by a medieval market in the courtyard of the Abbey the second weekend.
