Many local businesses, clubs and groups create Christmas markets too. These are perfect for those that like to give handmade crafts and support local designers.

Road Trip

Most Swiss Cities and our neighboring friends in Germany, France and Italy also host beautiful Christmas markets.

We especially love Montreux, Colmar, Baden Baden and Strasbourg.  Or for just a day trip try Rapperswil or Winterthur.

Hop on the SBB and spread your holiday cheer across countries!
