Lucerne Christmas Market
Lucerne Christmas markets provide relaxing couples breaks and family holidays to traditional European Christmas markets.

The stunning Lucerne Christmas Market has enchanted visitors for generations. The destination is popular with couples looking for a romantic winter getaway. Its stunning seaside location and the winter scenery of the Alps provide a very special atmosphere during the festive season and an ideal starting point for many excursions in central Switzerland. The main Christmas market at Franziskaner Platz is only a short walk away from the River Reuss, the Old Town and the main station. There, you will find everything from Christmas decorations to regional delicacies.

The town is not very large, with a population of around 60,000 people, and the community is close and very friendly. The Lucerne Christmas market brings many visitors to the town, filling it with excitement and festivities during December.

An annual tradition and highlight of the Lucerne Christmas market is the fairy tale ice rink, situated on the lake shore. This is a magical addition to the market and the perfect place to enjoy views of the historic city, and the majestic mountain backdrop.

From Thursday to Sunday, 20 stalls from 20 different countries present their own Christmas traditions at Kapellplatz with Lucerne's famous landmark, the Chapel Bridge, as a scenic background.

The markets in Lucerne are much smaller than the Zurich Christmas markets but provide a uniquely traditional atmosphere.
