Advent in Zurich

In December, the entire city is bathed in a warm glow, the scent of cinnamon and mulled wine hangs in the air, and the sounds of Christmas carols ring out wherever you go. Christmas markets and late-night and Sunday shopping provide opportunity for extensive Christmas shopping sprees, while events such as the Lichterschwimmen candle-floating event or the Advent concerts give rise to a magical ambiance. The festivities come to a climax with a spectacular New Year's Eve fireworks display hosted by Zurich hoteliers. Read on and find inspiration as to how to spend your stay in Zurich at Advent.
