Various Christmas-related festivities have begun implementation throughout the city of Geneva, from open markets to fun events that are scheduled to run from November through January. Those who may want to participate in the festivities or find good bargains should swing by the city straight from their Geneva airport transfers.
Foremost of the festivities is the annual Christmas Tree Festival, which not only features a breath-taking array of Christmas trees in their manifold splendour, but also showcases stunning works of art by various international artists. These works of art will be installed and on display throughout the city. Those who are visiting the city for some shopping can proceed to the International Christmas Market at Fusterie Square as soon as they leave arrive on their Geneva airport transfers. Here, shoppers will be delighted to ‘shop till they drop’ from hundreds of stalls and boutiques selling high quality and genuine folk arts and crafts from throughout Switzerland. The International Christmas Market is a sight to behold as each shop or food stall conducts their business in quaint little wooden chalets installed along the main shopping street.
Meanwhile, at Place du Rhone, the skating-inclined can participate to their hearts’ content at the Open Air Skating Rink, with equipment and skating gear available for rent at very low rates at the site. And in mid-December, the adventurous set can flex their muscles and discover the limits to their own personal endurance by taking part in the annual Christmas Swimming Cup. The famous event attracts more than 600 swimmers who brave December’s icy waters in a race that starts at Jardin Anglais and ends at Quai General Guisan.
For more information about exciting city-wide Christmas activities and events, especially those that you can immediately enjoy after finishing the requisite Geneva airport transfers procedure, Geneva’s own official website provides painstakingly updated and detailed information.
