Christmas Walks: Lucerne – Central Switzerland (4K)

During Advent, Franziskanerplatz is transformed into a town in miniature crammed with gaily decorated stalls resembling little timber houses.

Located in the heart of Lucerne’s Old Town, the Christmas Market creates a highly evocative seasonal atmosphere. Drawing visitors from near and far, the 70 or so festively decorated stalls offer a host of wares and special gift items.

While the grown-ups savour a wealth of food and drink offerings, the children make a beeline for the Christmas carousel to the appropriately seasonal music of brass ensembles and choirs. The air is laden with the spicy fragrance of punch and mulled wine. In Advent the Lucerne-Lake Lucerne region presents unforgettable events and a real sense of Christmas atmosphere. Enjoy anticipation with traditional Christmas events such as the Samichlausauszug (Father Christmas Procession), Klausjagen (Nicholas Chase), Sternsingen (Christmas Carolling) or atmospheric festive cruises on the lake.
