Don’t worry, dear stressed out shopper, you’re saved: three of our favorite shops team up for a special Christmas market from December 5 – December 7. At Christmas Karlsson you’ll find bits and bobs from Dotti’s Vintage and Waldraud and Highlight My Day. If you need a break, restaurant Fink will provide you with mulled wine and other delights.

Santa Claus will be there too and if you’re lucky, you’ll even win a present for yourself at the wheel of fortune.


What Swiss brands should I shop?

Switzerland is known for its cheese and chocolate, for Freitag bags and Victorinox knives. We are very much into these things. But there are other interesting Swiss products to shop:

An outdoor jacket or a backpack by Mammut, high quality Calida underwear, a Sigg bottle (right now they celebrate the world championship with a special footbal edition), stylish clothes or bags from Alprausch, natural beauty products from Weleda or to keep your feet comfortable during hiking tours, you might be interested in Rhoner socks. And there are things for the kids, too: A book of Globi or something from lovely little penguin Pingu.

An insider tip: we looove the Zurich shirts by Townhouse. They are not only Swiss, but also from Zurich.
