The active


Since 2013, the Association has been dedicated to fully communicating all the attractions taking place in the City of Zurich during the weeks prior to Christmas. The Association views itself as coordination office, working to maintain and constantly expand local, regional, national and international contacts. The objective of the Verein Weihnachten in Zürich is to strengthen Zurich’s position as a Christmas city and increase awareness of all activities. Together we can achieve more!
