14th Swiss Christmas Market

14th Swiss Christmas Market

Experience the joy & spirit of the festive season!


The Swiss Business Council, Abu Dhabi, under the patronage of the Embassy of Switzerland in the United Arab Emirates, cordially invites you to its popular annual Swiss Christmas Market, taking place for the 14th time from the 5th to the 8th of December 2018, at the courtyard and beach garden of the Beach Rotana Abu Dhabi.

The Swiss Christmas Market Abu Dhabi is one of the most popular events during the festive season in the Emirates and is certainly one of the highlights in the Events Calendar of the Swiss Business Council Abu Dhabi. It brings together the local and expatriate communities in Abu Dhabi highlighting Swiss customs and traditions and provides a meeting point for friends and families in a merry and cheerful atmosphere.

A small Swiss Village with more than 40 nicely adorned wooden chalets show guests a potpourri of articles, ornaments, decorative gifts and handicraft items typical of the season, and present a selection of culinary delicacies, collectively providing a unique Christmas shopping experience.

Relish Swiss food specialties like “Raclette”, a Swiss potato and cheese dish and of course the traditional Swiss Fondue, a “fun-to-do” dish best enjoyed with friends.

The jolly market atmosphere is enhanced by the wonderful aroma of freshly baked cookies and other seasonal delicacies and is bound to put you in a cheerful mood, making you forget that you are far away from your homeland at this very special time of the year.

True to good Swiss tradition a musical note will be added with the presence of the “Original Appenzeller Streichmusik Alder”, one of the most famous Swiss folklore bands promoting Swiss tradition all over the world, and local school choirs will complement this extraordinary and joyful holiday treat with their rendition of popular and well-loved Christmas carols on every afternoon of the event. Guests will be most welcome to sing along!

We are looking forward to celebrating together another joyous event!

Entrance to this event is free.
