The latest Christmas offers

Since Thursday in Zurich to a Christmas market richer: for the First time, is now on the Münsterhof use of the Advent-oriented celebration. Be different than the other, is the Credo of the creators (All of the new Christmas market you can read here). However, you can create the actually?

The place

If there is a Christmas market in Zurich is an ideal place, then this is the Münsterhof. The magnificent old town houses and the Cathedral, the fraumünster, not only form a coherent setting, but the town is full of those comfort, the needs of such an occasion. The organizers understand it, is to preserve this effect. Especially because the place is not moved unnecessarily close as the six-ringing place. Also, the beautiful gesture, the decoration used spruce from the Uetliberg on the 24. To give away in December.

The offer

Raclette, crepes, sausages and mulled wine, you can also find on the Münsterhof. In vain but there is only the smell. For mulled wine you have to whip out a red Banknote, assuming that you want to do something for the environment. Then there is 2,5 deciliters in a reusable Cup made from porcelain enamel for 15 Swiss francs (red) and 16 CHF (white). Who brings the Cup back, will receive 7 francs Depot, but no answer as to why the white is mulled wine, more expensive than the red one.

The chocolate kisses are with 2.50 francs comparatively cheap. Who slurps prefer oysters and champagne, SIPS, comes here on his account – in the double sense of the word. Otherwise, dealers sell on the square, the majority of well-known products of the city: Soeder his Soaps, Micro its scooters and Dilly his socks. All the way through, the organiser will not be able to pull the Slogan, "From Zurich to Zurich," however, because of the Berne wooden toys producer and singer Marc Trauffer is represented with a Stand at the market.

in addition, the Münsterhof offers a small, free Portion of the culture in the Igloo tent. In addition to numerous performances by music ensembles of the Conservatory of Zurich, readings, a guide, and screen-printing Workshops on the program. An ice rink like the sechseläuten square can't offer the Münsterhof, but because of the stand arrangement, the products come out better.



in The stands

Instead of in rustic wooden cabins with a gable roof will be presented in 38 simple Holzkuben. This is a Form that nature gives off, the big Winter, more cooling effect, but through the simplicity of convincing of the old town houses stand out, and these graces are not competing with one another unnecessarily. The newly developed stands are bright and functional, the copper-colored coat of paint gives you at least a subtle warm touch.

The audience

the location of The Münsterhofs reflected in the visitors: Here, the Well-to-stroll-to-do, shopping at the nearby Bahnhofstrasse. The Fraumünster is a tourist Hotspot, attracting also many visitors from abroad. For all the lighted reindeer is the subject of sleigh velvet Böögg is a popular Selfie, thanks in part to Christmas Tree and Cathedral in the Background. This self-performers are used to, nervous but less than jeering drunk, as we know from other Christmas markets. The offer at the stands would be perfectly tailored to fit the less extroverted people, but such clientele seems to be here (yet?) in the minority.



The mood

If there is such a thing as quiet-there are subtle be Happy, that would be the correct designation for the atmosphere, to spread the market. The big hype machine, and Gaudi was stages omitted. If there is such a thing as Action, and then watching how the Self-obsessed put on the reindeer sleigh in a scene.
