The delicious smell of roasted almonds, mulled wine, and other regional treats lures thousands of visitors into Basel's city centre every year. The historic old town with its festive decorations invites its guests to discover the diverse offer at one of the largest, most beautiful Christmas markets in Switzerland.

Over 180 merchants and craftsmen offer their goods at the booths at Barfüsserplatz. Kids can make candles at the enchanted forest at Münsterplatz, craft torches, try their hand at forging, or have some hot chocolate.

Further culinary delights to indulge in can be found at Claraplatz and at Quartier Christmas Market on Rheingasse. Thanks to the "Adväntsgass im Glaibasel" you will find holiday cheer as well as peace and quiet here.
