Zurich features several Christmas markets.

One famous one is located in the railway station itself on two levels and in several passage ways. It is apparently the biggest indoor Christmas market in Europe and its landmark is the big Christmas tree decorated by Swarovski.

Then you will find Christmas market stalls in the upper Bahnhofstrasse and the Pestalozziwiese (behind Globus). On Werdmuehleplatz you will find the singing Christmas tree.

In the Niederdorf, the old town, you will find another Christmas market with many stalls.

Please check with the tourist office when the markets start each year but basically they run for about a month before Christmas up to Christmas.
