Stroll through the historic Old Town, past lovingly decorated houses and festively adorned shop windows, and you’ll be charmed by the care that Basel puts into celebrating the Christmas season.
The Advent market on Barfüsserplatz and Münsterplatz has long attracted visitors from far and wide, while the hundred-odd Christmas trees adorning the streets guarantee an enchanting seasonal atmosphere throughout the city centre. Each year, the traditional Christmas lights in the Freie Strasse create a magical atmosphere. You can also admire the Christmas lighting in the St. Alban-Tal. The apprentices at the municipal nursery greatly enjoy setting these up every year.
