    ZURICH CHRISTKINDLIMARKT AT THE ZURICH MAIN TRAIN STATION.

    Traditionally, the Christmas market at the Zurich Main Train Station is one of the biggest indoor Christmas markets in Europe. However, this year because of the pandemic, it has a somewhat smaller and more selective set-up. Yet, its unique signature – Swarovski Christmas Tree – is still there to welcome and impress everyone arriving in the city. The tree is 15 meters in height and decorated with over 7,000 crystal ornaments. The brightest tree ever! There are many small Christmas huts with a wide choice of handcrafted toys, decorations, jams and spices. The market is a great meeting point for friends and families during the festive season. As soon as you arrive at the Train Station, you will feel the irresistible aroma of gingerbread and Glühwein. :)
