Christmas markets are hugely popular in Europe! Some are really famous but most have become commercialised and lost authenticity.
For years in Bern we have already had two Christmas markets. This year a third was opened that everybody raves about.
This new Christmas Market is also very central and in a park next to the houses of parliament. It is really beautiful and has a much more authentic feel. The stalls are set up for about three weeks before Christmas. But they are beautiful and lovingly designed. There are lot’s of food opportunities but also sweets and many possible Christmas gifts available. A lot of atmosphere pervades this newly created but temporary space well worth checking out.
