NewInZurich Photo Contest and Winners

We’ve been amazed by the fabulous photos that you’ve sent us for the “Zurich at Christmas” photo contest.  There are some amazing photographers amongst you! It’s great to see the diversity of the shots you have taken and all the different aspects of Zurich at Christmas that have caught your eye. Please scroll to the bottom of the page to see the 3 lucky winners!

Photos of Zurich at Christmas

The “Lucy” Christmas lights in Bahnhofstrasse really transform Zurich’s main shopping street into a beautifully photogenic quarter and they have proved popular in the photos you’ve sent us. The Singing Christmas Tree is not only a great tradition in Zurich but is also a wonderful event to capture. Of course Santa in his Märlitram, accompanied by his angels and young charges is just so cute! The shots of the river Limmat with the reflections on the water really bring out the magic of Zurich at Christmas time and the colours are truly beautiful. Don’t forget the Limmatschwimmen takes place this Thursday 19th – so that should provide another great photo opportunity!

Judging by the photos many of you are exploring Zurich’s Christmas Markets and indoor shopping centres but the beautiful shots of the snow in and around Zurich also demonstrate the wintry weather we’ve had here a couple of weeks or so ago. Who knows, maybe we’ll have a white Christmas again this year?
