End of the year in the city
Christmas and New Year in the city
Beautiful old towns, Christmas markets ranging from dreamy to sophisticated, a diverse cultural offering and culinary delights of a very high standard; not to mention the many roasted chestnut stands. Swiss cities currently offer all this and much more. You can forget about Paris, London or New York. And because you can stay cheaply in our hostels, you'll have more money left over for shopping or mulled wine.
