Saturday, December 10Zürich City Tour & Christmas Markets
Sunday, December 11Transfer to Basel

Be sure to join us on Saturday evening for a special “Welcome to Zürich” night OUT, starting with our special holiday welcome toast at the 25hour Hotel Langstrasse Zürich. We’ll break out the egg nog for this festive night of holly jolly cheer.

Next, join us for a stroll through town to a couple of the larger Christmas markets. Zürich’s markets create fairy-tale settings in the romantic Old Town, all the more magical during the holiday season. These festive gatherings bring back childhood memories and recall the Christmases of old. Typical of traditional markets are clusters of wooden huts manned by artisans selling their handcrafted wares. You might even see the vendors at work… carving wood, making candles or decorating gingerbread. Not only do the markets showcase the best of Swiss culture, but they give our OUTbounders opportunities to shop for one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts. You’ll find wreaths, wooden toys and hand-blown glass ornaments… the perfect gift for someone special, or yourself!

Gay Zürich

The crown jewel of Switzerland, Zürich is a progressive, open-minded city, eager to show off its hospitable nature. The Altstadt neighborhood is considered to be the “gay area” of Zürich, with lots of gay bars, clubs, saunas, and cafés. It’s also home to lots of shops, galleries, and theatres and centrally located to all of the major Christmas markets of Zürich. Walking around this part of town, you’ll see rainbow flags hanging from the windows, while queer couples walk quietly holding hands.

In the evening, you’ll find LGBTQ+ folk meandering through the streets enjoying the city lights, drag queens smoking in the doorways of bars, and even loud dance music bumping from a few of the clubs. The best part is how most of the restaurants, cafés and bars have outdoor terraces and beer gardens, which is perfect for enjoying a drink or bite to eat, even in the middle of December.
