Christmas atmosphere in the oldest town in Switzerland! And the «Christkindli» market (translatable as small child of Christ) in Chur draws many a visitor to this delightful setting throughout the period of Advent. Nestled in the Graubünden mountain world, the festively illuminated old town is an enchanting place to be.
At the time of the Chur Christmas market (Friday and Saturday before the first Advent Sunday) and the Chur «Christkindli» market (throughout the whole Advent period), you won’t be surprised why so many are drawn here on personally experiencing the charming atmosphere. Here, numerous traders and artists bid their special Christmas goods, including some most palatable delights ranging from a glass of spiced wine, local Graubünden specialities or the beloved grilled sausages.
A diverse fringe program accompanies the weeks-long Christmas market. And a platform for the locals serves the purpose of adding yet another touch of joy and color to this special time of the year – namely Advent!
