"Market of onions in november" Markets and shopping Tip by nessie-ch

Markets and shopping, Bern: 11 reviews and 17 photos


Market of onions every year at the last monday in november
It is not really a good season to travel to Switzerland in November, the temperatures are most low, it might have fog and snow... but if it happens and you are in the region you could see a special market. You can find all goods, but especially onions... and garlic. If you don't like them, stay away, because on this special day, the center of Berne smells of onion pie and hot spiced wine.
But it could be a good gift for someone liking onions, because women have made an art of representing onions in a beautiful way...
And of course... try the delicious onion pie:-)

Directions: In front of the house of parliament in the center of Berne

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
