The not to miss Christmas Market 30 minutes from Geneva - Chateau de Coppet from Dec 3rd to December 7th

This is for me the most beautiful Christmas Market in Geneva area for its unique location and the fantastic atmosphere.
The Coppet Castle Christmas Market   opens at 2p.m. on December 3rd and closes every day at 8p.m. (9p.m. on Saturday and  at 5 p.m. on Sunday ) ; the program for the  4 and half days is full of interesting activities , including several children workshops on how to make Christmas cookies and gingerbread.

The market hosts about 70 exhibitors that sell a variety of things from art-craft to wines and gastronomy from the area , there is also a skating ring outside the castle and Santa Claus is expected to arrive and meet kids on Sunday afternoon .

Check the full program on the website, this market attracts thousands of visitors so the best way to go there, especially if you go during the weekend,  is by train from Geneva , the train takes about 20 minutes and then it takes just 5 minutes walking from Coppet train station to the Castle.
