Christmas Market in Montreux

Events and activities during the new year holidays

A delicious smell of mulled wine is in the air ?

The season's earlier nightfall gives you a chance to admire the illuminations in the streets of Lausanne and Montreux. And the lower temperatures allow you to appreciate glasses of mulled wine and cups of hot chocolate even more. The canton of Vaud sees the good sides of the end of the year! In the towns and the freshly snowed under mountain resorts, the advent period stands for moments of magic, sharing and enchantment. Each year, the Christmas markets are larger, more beautiful and more fun. They are now part of Europe’s must-attend events, offering a large array of craft stands, seasonal products and enchanting activities. Waiting for Christmas turns into a pleasure, especially when you have the chance to marvel at the delicate ballet of the snowflakes and maybe even encounter Father Christmas in person!
