Detailed Overview

The enchanting aroma of mulled wine wafts through the air as visitors once again immerse themselves in the festivities of the traditional Basler Weihnacht, hosted at none other than the celebrated Basel Christmas Market—recently awarded the prestigious title of Best Christmas Market in Europe for 2021. The popular Adväntsgass im Glaibasel adds to the merriment. In the middle of the city centre, nestled in the historic Old Town, traders and artisans offer their goods for sale in 155 small, rustic wooden chalets. Anyone still looking for gift ideas can seek inspiration in the wide selection and enchanting ambience. Culinary delights also abound with waffles, mulled wine, genuine Basel Läckerli (a kind of gingerbread), delicious Swiss raclette or the popular grilled sausages. The market is enriched by numerous pre-Christmas events.
