St. Nicholas market Solothurn

04. - 05. December 2024 | St. Nicholas market in the middle of Solothurn's old town

The Chlausemäret in Solothurn is a traditional event heralding the anticipation of the Christmas season. This charming market takes place annually on the first Wednesday and Thursday of December, first held in 1981. The name "Chlausemäret" originates from the Solothurn dialect and means St. Nicholas Market..

The market spreads out over the historic Friedhofplatz, which forms the heart of the event. It is organized by the Chlausemäret Solothurn Association, responsible for selecting the market stalls. These stalls offer a variety of homemade and regional products, from culinary delights to artisanal items. A special highlight for both children and adults is the appearance of "Samichlaus," who wanders through the market stalls, bringing joy to all. The atmosphere of the Chlausemäret is characterized by the Christmas scent of roasted chestnuts, fir branches, and mulled wine.

The city of Solothurn, known as the "most beautiful Baroque city in Switzerland," is rich in historical events and landmarks, such as the picturesque and vibrant Old Town with its guild houses and figure fountains. Architectural structures like the Baseltor, St. Ursen Cathedral, or the Riedholzschanze, a Baroque city fortification, make the city a worthwhile visit at any time of the year.

In summary, the Chlausemäret in Solothurn is a wonderful opportunity to immerse oneself in the Christmas spirit, discover regional products, and enjoy the unique atmosphere of a historic Swiss city.

The St. Nicholas market will take place on 2 days from Wednesday, 04. December to Thursday, 05. December 2024 in Solothurn.
