For those who love Christmas time, St.Gallen is one of the best places to enjoy the festive atmosphere. Seven hundred stars shine above the city’s romantic old town, whilst the cheerfully decorated stalls of the Christmas market line the narrow streets. The St.Gallen Christmas market stretches from the Waaghaus, along the Bohl, all the way to the Market Square, tempting Christmas shoppers from 24th November to 24th December. In around 70 huts and stands, regional traders offer their traditional Christmas goods. Mulled wine, mulled beer, the typical raclette and other specialities are available in the Christchindli market, which offers homemade products directly next to the Abbey.
