Christmas Spirit in Geneva

International Christmas Market, Geneva, November – December 2007

Those looking to take a pre-Christmas break this year may wish to head to Geneva, home to a Christmas market throughout November and December.

Situated on the Place de la Fusterie, the market gives visitors the chance to find some unique and interesting gifts to take home to their loved ones. Locally-made arts and crafts are on display, while other quirky antiques and items from around the world will be available to buy. Food, drink and other entertainment stalls will line the streets, presenting tourists, some of whom will be staying in the Hotel d’Angleterre, with a variety of entertaining pursuits.

Another attraction in Geneva this festive season is the Christmas Tree Festival, an art event which celebrates the customs surrounding the traditional December decoration. This is an annual event and it perennially prompts a widespread bout of creativity, as local artists find new ways to express the spirit of Christmas.
