Zurich’s Charm on a Cold December Night

Dear readers

I’d like to start my new blog with something that fits perfectly into the holiday season. This blog post is all about city lights. Zurich is an enchanting city especially at Christmas time. Walking along the streets feels like walking through a winter wonderland. It’s magic.

See for yourself!

The Christmas lights were switched on on November 20th this year and was followed by the traditional Night Shopping in the heart of Zurich.

Zurich offers you many occasions to find a little something for your loved ones. My two favorite places in the city are the Christmas market at the main station and the Christmas market in the old town. Both markets are always fully packed with people but they’re definitely worth visiting.

Every year, a giant Christmas tree decorated with hundreds of Swarovski Christmas ornaments (worth over one billion Swiss francs) embellishes the hall of the Zurich main station. (Click here for a video behind the scenes.)

If you haven’t gotten into Christmas spirit yet there’s still hope. The Conelli Christmas Circus offers a program full of world-class entertainment, which includes a huge variety of everything a circus-loving heart could ever wish for.

Zurich is one of my favorite cities in the world. It has got so much to offer. I hope you’ll find something that appeals to you. 🙂
