Lively Christmas Market in Basel

Basel is one of Switzerland’s largest cities and lies at the borders with France and Germany in the Upper Rhineland.
Swiss Christmas traditions in the region have remained strong for centuries. The Christmas tree tradition originated from neighbouring Alsace in the 16th century. And local tradition has it that the children of Basel receive their gifts from Christkind, although Santa has taken over the mission in recent years.
During the four weeks of Advent, the popular Basel Christmas market takes place on two main sites: 
the Münsterplatz (Cathedral Square), an exquisite square towered by the lofty Gothic cathedral (Münster), and 
the Barfüssenplatz, a busy square in the centre of the old town, in front of the Barfüsserkirche which now hosts Basel’s Museum of History.
The popular event welcomes 160 traders and artisans in small, rustic wooden chalets, making it one of the largest Christmas markets in Switzerland. The chalets sell various items and produce, a fine art in Basel, from handmade toys to jewellery and from sausages to waffles and mulled wine.
Basel is also famous for its Läckerli which are delicious little gingerbread in a diamond shape.
As in many Christmas markets in Europe, it is best to wait for nightfall to explore Basel and immerse yourself in the Yuletide atmosphere.
This is when the Swiss city sparkles with a myriad of lights in an enchanting setting.
Take a walk in the picturesque old town of Basel whose narrow streets are made beautiful by the Christmas illuminations. And don’t miss the giant Christmas tree on the cathedral square.
Finally, a great number of events take place during the Advent period. Exhibitions relating to Christmas at the Museum der Kulturen, special Christmas performances at the puppet theatre (Basel’s Marionettentheater), classical concerts in various churches, and a much-awaited Gospel Night in the cathedral. A well enjoyed Christmas in Switzerland.

Christmas in Gruyère, Switzerland

Gruyere Christmas @www.lemonicks.com
Gruyeres Christmas By Mihai Bogdan Lazer

The charming and very picturesque little medieval town of Gruyeres in the Fribourg canton of Switzerland creates a magical Christmas event. Perched on the top of a hill overlooking the Alps and acres of farmland where cows graze to produce the milk for the famous Gruyeres cheese, is Gruyeres 800-year-old medieval castle and its accompanying medieval village.
For two weekends leading up to Christmas, 13th to 15th December and 20 to 22 December, the cobbled streets of the village are strung with pretty Christmas lights, the Christmas carol singers are out and about, there are braziers of roasting chestnuts, and the town’s festive Christmas Market of Handicraft and Flavors featuring more than thirty participants displaying their Christmas goodies. Saint Nicholas with his companions and donkey parade the town and oranges and gingerbread are distributed. It’s a delightful festive atmosphere. Christmas Day ends with a concert in the church.

There are many activities for children as well which will make their Christmas in Switzerland a memorable one. Children’s workshop at the Château de Gruyères, Candlestick making, Storytelling rides, Face painting, traditional present hunting, children’s Bingo, are a few of them. There are musical entertainments from different bands on different days.
Most people associate Gruyeres with the famous cheese of the same name and you can visit the factory, La Maison de Gruyere, just 15 minutes’ walk downhill from the village where you can take a very entertaining and informative tour about the cheese-making process. The cafes in Gruyeres specialize in traditional local food such as fondues, rostis, and dishes from the Bénichon menu– a centuries old, traditional Fribourg celebration, and the local double cream served with meringues and local raspberries is very addictive.  

Visitors can learn about the art of fondue preparation by master cheesemakers at the Fondue Academy. If chocolate is your passion, you can reserve a place in a workshop at the Chocolaterie de Gruyères or take a visit to the nearby Cailler Chocolate Factory. Gruyeres is a magical place to celebrate Christmas in Switzerland.

The beautiful Swiss city of Lucerne or Luzern is a wonderful Christmas destination with traditions dating back many centuries. If you are looking for things to do in Lucerne at Christmas time, there are plenty of choices including a number of Christmas markets.
The main Lucerne Christmas market, known locally as Lozärner Wiehnachtsmärt, is held in the square in front of the Franciscan Church in the Old Town. Here you’ll find a wide selection of food and drinks and handmade Christmas products made from different materials such as glass, textile, ceramics, wood and metal. Gifts include candles, hand knitted hats and sheepskin gloves.
The delicious aromas of roasted chestnuts, grilled sausages and homemade gingerbread will assault your nostrils as you stroll the market stalls. Follow up your tasty treat with a warming cup of mulled wine or a steaming hot chocolate. Lucerne’s Christmas markets are usually held from around 3 to 20 December. Lucerne is an attractive city when dressed with Christmas lights, and with snow dusting the roof of the city’s famous wooden bridge, Kapellbrücke, the scene is straight from a Christmas card.
For even more illuminations be sure to visit Live on Ice in Europaplatz (next to the KKL Building). This festival, which runs from late November into the New Year, is home to food stalls, an ice skating rink, and festive light illuminations. Its location next to Lake Lucerne is the ideal spot to admire the twinkling Christmas lights reflected in the water.

As you wander the pretty streets of Lucerne old town, keep an eye out for the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ Santa Claus. The pair arrive in early December to check that the local children have been behaving. 
Samichlaus, wearing red, leaves bags of nuts, chocolates and gingerbread for the well-behaved children, whilst legend says his counterpart, Schmutzli, who wears black, kidnapped the naughty ones. Thankfully, today his role is to remind kids to be good and to help Samichlaus distribute the gifts! A photo with the good and bad Santa is a unique souvenir to remind you of your Christmas visit to Lucerne.

Christmas in Montreux, Switzerland

Montreux is the best place to celebrate Christmas in Switzerland also known locally as Marche de Noel Montreux. This is because they have Montreux Christmas market, probably the best Christmas market in Switzerland and a whole festival around it. Montreux Christmas market is the largest open-air Christmas market in Switzerland and probably one of the most picturesque in Europe. If you can’t get into the Christmas spirit in Montreux then you can’t anywhere! In fact, there are frequent trips from Zurich to Montreux and Geneva to Montreux.

The Christmas festival, Montreux Marche de Noel, takes place annually on the banks of Lake Geneva in central Montreux. It starts a month before Christmas and runs until the big day. The traditional Christmas market (Weihnachtsmarkt) is the centerpiece and runs seemingly forever along the shores of the lake. There are 172 chalet style stalls with many gift and handicraft options as well as great food and drink. These sell anything from antiques (Brocante de Noël) to arts and crafts. Jewelry and clothes are common as are household and Christmas decorations. A Vin chaud (mulled wine) is a must to sip as you wander around the market along the Grand Rue and listen to the Christmas themed music.
For families, next to the market is Elves’ Square. Here you will find activities, workshops and entertainment. Learn candle making and take a chocolate workshop. In the evening, keep a look out above the lake. A few times an evening, between the Lumberjack village and the Place du Marché, the big Santa Clause himself flies over Lake Geneva on his sleigh!

Also worth a visit is, UNESCO listed Chateau de Chillon Castle (you can get tickets here). While this is a must visit at any time of year, at Christmas time, you can experience a medieval Christmas here with many Christmas themed activities. Next stop should be the top of Rochers-de-Naye mountain which you can climb on a cogwheel railway. Not only do you get great views on the way, but Santa’s house is at the top. You can visit Santa and then ski while you are up there if you wish.

For anyone looking for a full Christmas experience with days of Christmas related activities, Montreux can’t be beat for your Christmas stay.

For those who love Christmas in Switzerland, “The city of stars” St. Gallen is the answer to enjoy the festivity. Seven hundred stars shine above the city’s idealistic old town, emanating a fairy-tale feel and festive sparkle to the facades of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Another starry-eyed sight is a huge 17 meter high Christmas tree at Klosterplatz square in the Abbey district with 18,000 lights! There’s something magical about the lights!

A not-to-be-missed event is “Chlausritt”, which sees Father Christmas, Santa’s helpers and angels take to the saddle to parade through the city. The festival of nine lessons and Carols happens in the Cathedral and is really worth to see and hear!
Engage in candle dipping activity by making your own candle by dipping a wick into hot tub of molten wax in a pavilion on Kornhausplatz. The price is as per the weight of the candle when it’s finished and the proceeds go to charity.
Several concerts take place in St.Gallen’s impressive Cathedral and special events in the Waaghaus. There are choir performances, readings programs as well. A food market to cater to your taste buds.

Among traditional and local food, first to try is St. Galler veal bratwurst which originated from here. Glühwein (Mulled wine) comes in four different flavors. Mulled beer, the typical raclette and Fondue and other specialties are available in the Christchindli market. Christkind has an interesting lore attached to its name.

The Christmas market in St Gallen stretches from Waaghaus, along the Bohl, all the way to the Market Square. Festively decorated 70 stalls of the Christmas market await your visit in the narrow alleys. If you are visiting St Gallen over a weekend, be sure not to miss the Christkindli market with over 120 stalls!

Christmas in Vevey, Switzerland

Tunnel of Light! Photo Credit: ©MontreuxRivera Tourism

Between Lausanne and Montreux is the town of Vevey on the north shore of Lake Geneva. A town which was a special place for Charlie Chaplin, a town which still celebrates and remembers the legend in high regard.

Only 20 minutes by car from Montreux, it has an interesting way of celebrating English Christmas in Vevey. While other towns of Switzerland lure you with irresistible markets, music, shows, food and traditional art and craft, Vevey has Europe’s longest tunnel of light, in addition to all of that. And this light tunnel by the lake has become the spotlight of the festive season. The 50m-long tunnel is made of 25 arches holding up 1,150 garlands of fairy lights with around 28,750 sparkling star bulbs. People can walk inside the tunnel and be mesmerized.

Christmas markets in Vevey are not that alluring compared to other Christmas markets in Switzerland but people from other towns still flock over here just to see the tunnel and be part of it. Or they stay in Vevey and cover the other two neighboring towns for festivities. Besides Christmas, Vevey holds a year round market every Tuesday and Saturday in the Grand Place, the best place for local products like cheese and sausage.

A street away is the Läderach chocolate shop where you can take a guided tasting tour before making your very own chocolate bar. On the promenade is the Alimentarium, the world’s first food themed museum.

But the icing on the cake is a visit to Chaplin’s World, a peek a boo to the legend’s personal & professional life. You can buy a ticket here.
