Winter is most definitely here and the countdown to Christmas has begun. On your marks, get set…shop! But Christmas is not just an orgy of consumerism. It’s a time to meet friends, drink a few drinks and enjoy winds icy breath. Fortunately Christmas markets allow you to shop, socialise and get freezing cold, all at the same time. Here is a list of my favourite Zurich markets and a bonus one that is out of town.
This one has the benefit of being open until the cusp of Christmas. As you fall of the train empty handed, (men will know what i'm talking about,) pick up a gift from here rather than the local 24 hour gas station. But do it before 4pm! It also has the added bonus of the most crystal covered tree in the known universe.
Until 24th Dec. Sun - Weds, 11am - 9pm, Thurs - Sat, 11am - 22pm.
Finally, if you fancy getting out of town the Monastery at Einsiedlen provides the spectacular backdrop to their Christmas market. And as it sits at a higher elevation the increased likely hood of snow adds to the Christmassy ambience. But be warned, it’s only there until this Sunday, (5th Dec.)
Until 5th Dec, Thurs 11am - 7:30-pm, Fri & Sat 11am - 9pm, Sun 11am - 7:30pm

1. What do you think about betting?
What do you think about betting? When you think of betting strategies, the first thing that may come to your mind is money management. You shouldn’t overspend while betting. Otherwise, you may lose a lot more than what you win.
