Christmas market Zurich

21 Nov. - 23 Dec. 2024 | Christmas market at Werdmühleplatz

The Zurich Christmas Market is a sparkling jewel in the crown of Switzerland's pre-Christmas season, opening its gates annually to visitors from near and far. The festive hustle and bustle typically begins in November and continues until December 23rd, allowing one to indulge in the joy of the holiday season right up until Christmas Eve..

The Christmas market in Zurich is not only predestined for its picturesque setting. The market is held at Werdmühleplatz, in the immediate vicinity of the lower Bahnhofstrasse – a place that spreads a unique Christmas atmosphere thanks to its central location and historic backdrop. The nearby splendid buildings and the busy activity on Bahnhofstrasse lend the market an ambiance that combines traditional charm with urban flair.

The market is organized by SCT EVENT GmbH, a company that consistently proves its expertise in creating events that bring people together and spread joy. Their experience in event planning ensures that the market is a highlight in Zurich's event calendar year after year.

The market stalls stretch across Werdmühleplatz, creating a world of lights, scents, and sounds. They offer a wide range of artisanal products, creative gift ideas, and festive decorations. A special feature of the Zurich Christmas Market is the Singing Christmas Tree, a living Christmas tree with choirs standing on its branches, singing carols – an incomparable musical and visual experience.

Visitors can look forward to a variety of delicacies. Traditional Swiss treats like raclette, fondue, and grilled sausages provide internal warmth, while mulled wine and hot chocolate warm the hands. Fine chocolates, gingerbread, and the famous Zurich Tirggel are not to be missed.

The market is easily and comfortably accessible. Thanks to its central location, it is optimally accessible on foot, by bicycle, or by public transport. Its proximity to Zurich's main train station also makes it attractive to Christmas market enthusiasts coming from outside the city.

In conclusion, the Zurich Christmas Market is a social event, a place of encounter and joie de vivre, where the anticipation of the festive season can be experienced with all senses. In the contemplative time of the year, it offers a break from everyday life and allows adults and children alike to dive into the magical world of Christmas.

The Christmas market will take place on 33 days from Thursday, 21. November to Monday, 23. December 2024 in Zurich.
