It's great in bad weather since it's inside the Bahnhof. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

Here are some pictures:

In addition to some on the list above, we plan to visit the Stein am Rhein market, esp. as the town is celebrating its thousand-year anniversary this year.

I've heard some very funny stories from my own friends about the Montreux christmas market (mostly their own bad behavior!). Thanks for the mention!

Visit www.christmasmarkets.com for a load of inofrmation on Christmas Markets throughout Europe, but particularly Switzerland. Basel prides itself on the traditional nature of their market - http://www.christmasmarkets.com/Swit...as-market.html

My wife and I are thinking of visiting the Vienna Christmas Markets and got some information about them from http://www.christmasmarkets.com/Aust...as-market.html

Has anyone been to any of the Viennese markets?
