After reviewing the website this looked like a fun day out. The website says open from late November to the 24 December and also says that it was open until 2200 with the Santa sleigh at 1700, 1800 and 1900. This may be the case...More

A cramped Christmas market with more commercial items than handicrafts. No doubt there is a great atmosphere and easy availability of mulled wine but I think you need to go to Zurich or Basel for more traditional (and less expensive) German-style Christmas markets.

Just spent an afternoon there a few days ago, lots of different stalls and something for everyone. We came from Basel and we found their Christmas Market to have a more German feel and the Montreux one to have a more French feeling. We got...More
