Madame micebook simply must get her festive shopping under way….
Holidays are coming and Madame micebook is off to explore the veritable winter wonderland that is Zurich. Home of the famed Christmas market, this Swiss stop doesn’t boast just one market, travellers can take their pick from the festive attractions that arrive for winter season. Kick off by exploring the covered market in Zurich’s main train station which is home to the largest Christmas market in Europe.
Next stop is the Wienachtsdorf, which boasts a more modern feel with its upcycled products ice rink. But what’s that you hear? The dulcet voices of umpteen choirs crooning their take on a Christmas classic? Yes indeed, choirs gather from across the region to have their moment at ‘the singing Christmas tree’ – a tree-like structure where various musicians gather for their own carol repertoire.
Stay at the historic Baur au Lac hotel, home to Zurich’s largest Christmas tree, and get in the festive mood as the astonishing 70,000 lights glow on the tree. Check out the sweet mountain hut, Chalet au Lac, set in the grounds, which serves mulled wine and traditional sharing Swiss dishes in a magical setting.
Alternatively, the Dolder Grand, located a short drive from the city overlooking the alps and lake, is the largest five-star hotel in Zurich with 175 luxurious bedrooms and suites and 15 meeting spaces. Piano concerts, Advent brunches with storytelling sessions by the fire, and cosy afternoon teas all feature on the property’s festive programme.
