The Swiss Christmas Market Abu Dhabi is a popular event during the festive season in Abu Dhabi which brings together the local and expatriate communities in Abu Dhabi highlighting Swiss customs and traditions. It provides a meeting point for friends and families in a merry and cheerful atmosphere.
A small Swiss Village with 50 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.
