Zurich is a shopper’s Wonderland, with more than its fair share of designer shops, boutiques, and department stores. With the Christmas season around the corner, Zurich offers several Christmas markets around the city offering hand crafted items, chocolates, toys, and tons of yummy treats!
The oldest Christmas market in Zurich is held every year in the “lower village” in old town. The market stalls are located next to central Niederdorfstrasse. The Christmas market during advent season is a must in this picture perfect location of cobbled streets, even if it’s just a stroll to see all the market stands and to taste the mulled wine.
