"Christkindlimärt" in Rapperswil-Jona

The Christmas market in Rapperswil-Jona is a very special gem. Its picturesque backdrop includes the medieval Old Town and Rapperswil Castle.

The Rapperswil Christkindlimärt is a magical Christmas world in the heart of the medieval Old Town of Rapperswil-Jona.

The Grand Christmas Market

From December 14 – 17, Rapperswil’s Old Town is transformed into an enchanting Christmas world, featuring around 200 market stalls. Extending from the lake via Marktgasse to the main square, for three days it is one of the largest Christmas markets in Switzerland.

The Advent Village

On the weekends before and after the grand Christmas market (Thursday – Sunday), the "Christkindlimärt" makes a guest appearance in a somewhat smaller but no less festive framework in the area around the harbor and on Fischmarktplatz.
