As the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer, and as the aroma of gingerbread fills the air and those first tentative snowflakes are falling, it’s the time for the Christmas markets to open.

Bern Region

In the capital, two places invite you to take a romantic stroll in front of the unique backdrop of historic buildings. While the Waisenhausplatz is mainly used to sell common market articles, the Christmas market on Münsterplatz focuses on arts and crafts. From mouth-blown Christmas tree baubles to exquisite wood carvings, everyone will find a suitable gift for under the Christmas tree.

At the foot of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, small and fine festivities are enchanting this year.

So come along and enjoy the winter magic!


Biel Seeland

The biggest Christmas market in the Biel Seeland region takes place in the heart of the city of Biel. Visitors can browse the mainly homemade products on sale at around 80 festively decorated stalls. The beautiful Christmas lights shining in the narrow alleyways create a truly special atmosphere.
