The association

In Zurich since 2013

Zurich’s inner city offers a whole range of pre-Christmas attractions. The most important and attractive are represented in the Christmas in Zurich association. The Christmas in Zurich association promotes extensive communication of the Christmas attractions in Zurich and the positioning of Zurich as a Christmas city. Whether you are a local or a tourist, you can take inspiration from our members‘ tips and enjoy the most atmospheric time of the year.

Working together for Christmas in Zurich

The «Christmas in Zurich» association was established in 2013 and promotes extensive communication of pre-Christmas events in the city of Zurich and its wider area. It considers itself to be a point of coordination, and maintains and develops regional, national and international contacts. The aim is to position Zurich more strongly as an attractive Christmas city and to increase awareness of all its Christmas activities. By working together, we can achieve more!

Who can become a member?

Any natural and legal person who believes their interests are represented by the Christmas in Zurich association and would like to support the association’s aims can become a member. The Christmas in Zurich association is of particular interest to those who would benefit from Zurich being more strongly positioned as a Christmas city: Christmas markets, Christmas circuses, Christmas events, retail businesses, hotels, restaurants, theatres and churches. A first glimpse of the variety of our members offers the list of members (in german).

What do we offer members?

A stronger presence! The association focuses its activities on the areas of representing mutual interests, positioning Zurich as a Christmas city, promoting the traditional Christmas culture and the active exchange of experiences and ideas between the organisers of Christmas attractions.

The association’s work focuses on the creation of synergies through shared PR and marketing activities. Since it was established in 2014, the association has created several communication channels which enable its members to have a presence at the heart of the Christmas season.

• Presence on the website
• Presence on the Facebook profile
• Electronic newsletter, sent out three times a year
• Flags on official flagpoles of the city of Zurich during the 4 weeks of Advent

And we also want to do a lot more in future! Next year we have plans for a mobile app that both locals and tourists can use on their journey of discovery through the Christmas city of Zurich.
