Basel, Bern, and Zurich host the largest Christmas Markets in Switzerland. The smaller markets are also worth visiting! Try Geneva for its famous craft—like handmade winter garments, and enjoy great French food and Swiss winter specialties on Rue​ du Mont-Blanc. Probably the best-known Christmas market in Switzerland is in Montreux. There's no more idyllic place than this small town with its snow-capped peaks in the background and glowing Christmas decorations. Kids especially adore this place for Santa's house and post office in the Christmas village. Lausanne’s Christmas market features a skating rink, a market, and food at the St François plaza with its 50 wooden chalets.
