It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Along with the jolly Christmas spirit comes the incredible Winterthur Christmas Market! This picturesque market takes place in Winterthur, Canton Zurich, and is brimming with stalls that offer hats, candles, handcrafted goods, and many more items that make for perfect Christmas gifts.

One of the most stunning Christmas markets in Switzerland

Every year, this Christmas market attracts many visitors and tourists to Switzerland’s sixth-largest city, Winterthur. The market takes place in the middle of the old city, with the perfect background of old townhouses, along with a plethora of wooden Christmas houses that are decorated with soft lights.

The city of Winterthur is incredibly old, with its origin dating back to the Roman Empire, although modern-day Winterthur was established in 1922. The city today has a beautiful variety of buildings which add to the atmosphere of the market, making it a fantastic way to start a winter holiday that is perfect for families with kids.

This year, to add to the festivities there is an entertainment programme including a Santa Claus parade, face painting, storytellers, dancers, yodelling and more! Plus if you buy a Christmas gift at the market, you don't have to worry about getting it home without your loved ones seeing what you got them, you can get it wrapped for free at the gift wrapping station. 

Plan your trip today!
