Christmas in Bern

The streets and alleys are aglow with the warm light escaping from living rooms. Little Christmas trees decorate the facades of the houses, adding to the romantic mood. The Old Town houses, dating from the 15th to 17th centuries, provide a fantastic and unique backdrop for the distinctive Bern Christmas Market. Münsterplatz is devoted mainly to arts and crafts. Traditional market fare can be found 10 minutes away on Waisenhausplatz.

You'll find special candles, gifts and handmade souvenirs. Glühwein will help to warm you up again, and there are plenty of stalls offering snacks and nourishment. A visit to one of the legendary restaurants in the Old Town - either the 350-year-old Klötzlikeller or the Kornhauskeller - turns a visit to this magical market into something really special.
