Adväntsgass im Glaibasel

Basel Zentrum

Everyone who associates the Advent season with more than the hunt for bargains will feel particularly at home at this quarter Christmas market. Anyone strolling through the Rheingasse these days can get the impression that they are in a village square. Residents and stand operators have a relaxed chat, exchange ideas and perhaps taste an exotic curry. Or should it rather be a winter classic, for example raclette or fondue? Either way, connoisseurs will definitely get their money's worth!
