Basel Christmas

Swiss Bliss-Mas

Basel, Freiburg & Black Forest

Experience Christmas without borders! Our first stop takes us to Switzerland and the beautiful downtown heart of Basel, aglow with Christmas lights and a magnificent Christmas tree adorned with ornaments by decorator Johann Wanner. A Christmas fairy-tale forest adventure playground is offered for your little elves to enjoy pouring candles and decorating gingerbread. This initiate Christmas Market is lined with small rustic wooden chalets where vendors offer their goods and inspire good Christmas cheer.

For the second half of the adventure, we cross the border into Germany, through the Black Forest and into Freiburg. Towering over the town is the 380-foot-tall landmark spire of Freiburg Minster’s Gothic Cathedral. This Black Forest Christmas Market is famous for artistic handmade goods, felt products, and high-quality ceramics.  The artisans and vendors here are happy to share their crafts by offering demonstrations and the opportunity to try your hand producing your own artisanal blown glass treasure.
