CHRISTMAS IN ZÜRICH
4th December, 2016.
Our first Christmas Market this year! We missed the biggest Christmas Market in Germany – Christkindlesmarkt in Nürnberg last month. Today’s plan to Zürich was a spontaneous one. We planned to stay at home and play ping pong because the weather forecasted a cloudy Sunday but we woke up to a sunny one instead. Herr Hallo came to bed and suggested that we go out today. We decided on going to Zürich and visit the Christmas Markets. There are a few Christmas Markets around Zürich. Today, we visited two – one in Zürich Hauptbahnhof (Mainstation) & another one at Sechseläutenplatz in front of the Opera House.
We started our day at the Zürich Haupbahnhof where there is a huge Swarovski Crystal Tree on display every year. The crowd was a little overwhelming because 1) it’s Sunday, 2) Sunday Christmas shopping and 3) the weather was perfect.
