Christmas Market Yverdon-les-Bains

December, the season of Christmas markets

Nov 1, 2018

During the Advent time, these events are a chance to discover the region in a variety of ambiances

A festive atmosphere, little wooden chalets, local products, clothing and crafts; this is the recipe for the Christmas markets which take place all over the Canton of Vaud. But each one has developed its own unique atmosphere. For example, the “Bô Noël”, which brings the whole centre of Lausanne alive, plays the urban card. And the seventh Lausanne Lumières festival, which will take place alongside, will illuminate the city with about a dozen surprising light installations located in unusual places in the city centre. The theme for Montreux is tradition: Santa arrives there in his sleigh against the backdrop of Lake Geneva and the Alps. Visitors can also come and say hello to him in his house at Les Rochers-de-Naye. At Chillon Castle, they’re invited to travel in time and experience Christmas as it was in the Middle Ages. There’s also a historical setting in Yverdon-les-Bains, where the event occupies the town’s paved streets lined with 18th century buildings. And in Morges, there’ll be a magical atmosphere at the castle, bringing this 13th century monument to life, from the gardens to the cellars.
