Zurich Christkindlimarkt

With sparkling lights and traditional festive treats, the Zurich Christkindlimarkt has delighted visitors and citizens for over twenty years.

by Michelle Bailat-Jones

From jewellery to children’s toys to artisanal handcrafts and so much more: the 150-plus vendor stalls set up inside Zurich’s beautiful and historic main train station hall create one of the biggest indoor Christmas markets in all of Europe. Come for the ambiance, a handful of Tirggel cookies and a glass of mulled wine, and don’t miss the focal point of this market – the 15-metre-high Christmas tree laden with thousands of Swarovski crystals.
