Zurich’s Singing Christmas Tree

Updated for 2018

One of the highlights of Christmas in Zurich must surely be visiting the Singing Christmas Tree. This gigantic Christmas tree is not like any other – it’s set on a podium and filled with smiling, singing faces and you can listen and enjoy their singing as you clutch your Glühwein.

Located in a side street with a little Christmas Market attached, it’s in Werdmühleplatz just off Bahnhofstrasse. It’s very close to the main railway station and easy to find.

If you get there early, there are benches located directly in front of the tree to sit on. If not you can stand right behind and watch as the singers (sometimes children, sometimes adults) dressed up in their costumes, take their places in the “branches” and give a rendition of a selection of carols and songs.

The only problem is that Zurich’s Singing Christmas Tree is here just for a short while 🙁  On 23rd December it has it’s last performance before the tree is disassembled and packed away again for the next year.
