Christmas market Sarnen

| Christmas market in the village center of Sarnen | regional Fair

The Sarnen Christmas Market, an annual highlight in November, is a true feast for the senses and the heart. Traditionally held on the Wednesday before the first Advent, it brings festive cheer to the car-free village center of Sarnen. Organized by the Sarner Fachgeschäfte Association, the market is characterized by a unique flair closely linked to the charming village square..

Sarnen itself, with its picturesque village center, provides the perfect setting for the event. Historical buildings and the village chapel create a atmospheric backdrop, lending the market an almost magical aura. The market stalls stretch across the entire area, offering visitors a variety of experiences.

What makes the Sarnen Christmas Market special is its mix of traditional and artisan offerings. An array of stalls attract with intricate handicrafts and a rich selection of local delicacies and drinks. Visitors can embark on a culinary journey through the region while discovering unique gifts and decorations.

A highlight is the “living nativity scene” in front of the village chapel, featuring real animals and a baby Jesus, telling a special Christmas story – an experience that enchants both young and old. Musical performances and various events also contribute to an incomparable atmosphere, making the market an unforgettable occasion.

The Sarnen Christmas Market is renowned not only for its artisanal offerings but also well beyond the cantonal borders. It offers a unique opportunity to experience the pre-Christmas season in an authentic, warm environment.

The Christmas market takes place annually, and therefore for the 45th time previsibly in November 2024 in Sarnen.
