It won’t take long to realise that alongside the pulsating financial hub and 2000 year old Altstadt lie streetwise hangouts and once derelict buildings that have been given a new lease of life. By day the picturesque old town is a shopper’s paradise - meander through the maze of ancient alleyways and discover hidden boutiques and timeless architecture. Once the sun sets expect a different vibe, as street artists, bars and restaurants introduce a fresh element of colour and excitement.
Zurich is an enchanting place to visit at Christmas time, as magical markets, Advent concerts and the scent of cinnamon and mulled wine set the mood. From 27 November to 24 December the city is aglow with twinkling lights and festive decorations. Zurich holds Europe’s largest indoor market, which takes place at the main train station, with 150 decorated huts and an enormous Christmas tree - adorned with over 7000 glittering crystal ornaments. Be captivated by the city’s oldest Christmas market in the Niederdorf quarter. Or romanced by the fairy tale ambiance of the Christmas market in Rapperswil-Jona, which takes place against a medieval backdrop. Enjoy familiar songs before the Singing Christmas Tree at Werdmühleplatz – a daily event that’s sure to get you in the Christmassy mood.
