Zurich’s “Wienachtsdorf” at Sechseläutenplatz

One of the largest Christmas markets in the city of Zurich is held at Sechseläutenplatz, directly in front of the Opera House.

Just a stone’s throw from the lakeshore, Zurich’s “Wienachtsdorf” – or Christmas village – enchants visitors both big and small. Around 100 market stalls are grouped together to form a convivial Christmas village against the spectacular backdrop of the Opera House, and invite visitors to browse and enjoy a glass or two of glühwein.

Designer Market and Cuisine

At the market stalls, changing local designers offer out-of-the-ordinary pieces of jewelry and unusual finds, while a colorful choice of culinary delights ensures that visitors do not go hungry. Whether international specialties or traditional Swiss fare in the Fondue-Chalet: the main focus is placed on people spending an enjoyable time together amidst a festive ambiance – whether over an after-work drink of mulled wine, on an excursion with friends, or after making candles with their children at Bürkliplatz.
