on the carousel at the Children's Christmas
Market at Little Venice.
BUY THIS: A handmade miniature wooden
train set from local artist Bernard Aubry,
found at his stall in the Marché de Noël.
Swiss Family Christmas
While it's revered for its annual art festival,
Basel throws a party at Christmastime too.
Since 1978, the city's pedestrian-friendly
Old Town has filled with festive decorations
and wooden chalets in Barfüsserplatz and
Münsterplatz. Stock up on handpainted glass
ornaments (Swiss artist Johann Wanner's
are the ones to find), and when it's time to
refuel, grab some Basler Leckerli (gingerbread). Across the Rhine on Claraplatz - a
15-minute walk from the city center - a smaller and newer market skews more culinary
than crafty, with stalls serving grilled sausage, waffles, glühwein, and more.
TRY THIS: Raclette, a hearty dish of melted
cheese served with potatoes, charcuterie,
Market souvenirs: Baumstriezel (fried Hungarian pastries) and (right) handmade holiday cheer.
