The town of Bern features not only one, but two lovely Christmas markets. Both are very popular and have been organized for twenty years, one in Waisenhausplatz square, and the other one in the old town. About 100 stands propose a multitude of fine Christmas ware for sale. The arts and crafts market at the foot of the mighty cathedral, at Münsterplatz square and platform, overflows with gifts, which are lovingly wrapped in a special "wrapping hut". You may also watch a glass blower shape a delicate object, stroll through the covered arcades of medieval Bern or enjoy the culinary delicacies in one of the two inns set in the festive atmosphere of the Bern Christmas fair.
