The Sustainable Christmas Village
Zurich's "Wienachtsdorf" at Sechseläutenplatz

Mon - Sat 11.00 - 22.00
Sun 11.00 - 20.00

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. Set in the heart of the city, on the edge of the Old Town, this enchanting Christmas market is romantic and traditional, yet at the same time modern and urban.

At the market stalls, changing local designers offer out-of-the-ordinary pieces of jewellery and unusual finds, while a colourful choice of culinary delights ensures that visitors do not go hungry. The main focus is placed on people spending an enjoyable time together amidst a Christmas ambiance - whether over an after-work drink of mulled wine, on an excursion with friends, or after making candles with their children at BĂĽrkliplatz.
