The Christmas circuses are popular with visitors who can spend the evening enjoying a show or live act beside the riverside.

The oldest Zurich Christmas market is held in the heart of the Niederdorf quarter of the Old Town, where merchants from all over the world will inspire you with some great ideas for Christmas presents. Here the numerous spill out on the Hirschenplatz and Rosenhof, making it easy to spend hours strolling through the multitude of stalls. Here you will find a range of food, handicrafts and Christmas gifts. Set against the backdrop of Zurich's Old Town and brimming with festively decorated stalls, this market provides an amazing atmosphere for visitors of all ages. In the main station, you will find Europe's largest covered Christmas market. Here, over 160 decorated stalls are located around a majestic 50ft tall Christmas tree decorated with over 5,000 crystals.
