One month of festivities at this very picturesque Christmas market. All along the lakefront you will find around 150 little chalets selling gifts and trinkets, including hot-spots for foods in several locations. Under the large structure in the center you will find foods galore with picnic tables. Further along there is a tent hosting an array of delicacies including fondue, sausages, churros, and more. Be sure to try Lisa’s favorite waffle, Manneke Kris or the giant tartiflette. Dress warmly as the whole event is outdoors and at the lakefront. The Ferris Wheel is sure to thrill young and old! You can visit Santa, who comes directly from faraway Lapland to his house at the Rochers-de-Naye, discover an authentic Christmas Village in Caux, or stroll through the Medieval Enchantement within the walls of the legendary Château de Chillon.
