Kambly Christmas market in Trubschachen

Festive lights in Trubschachen

Look forward to luminous moments in the Emmental Valley: during the first two Advent weekends from 29 November to 1 December and 6 to 8 December 2019, the Kambly Christmas Market will be held in Trubschachen.

This year, the 30 luminously decorated chalets will for the first time be set up in a circle surrounding the Kambly Experience, creating an atmospheric Christmas village.

The chalets will be offering delicious regional specialities and top-quality, hand-crafted products, gladdening the hearts of visitors to the Christmas market. Just like in recent years, the romantic Lantern Path along the River Ilfis invites visitors to enjoy a stroll before resting by the fire and taking in the festive winter atmosphere.

Visitors can also round off their visit to the Kambly Christmas Market with a varied programme of numerous events for the whole family. Gingerbread decorating, a puppet theatre, Christmas fairy tales in the winter forest and decorating a Kambly biscuit tin will make children’s eyes sparkle and allow the grown-ups to revisit treasured childhood memories. Come to the Kambly Christmas Market and enjoy the pleasures of the Advent season with all your senses.
