Hello Maggie. Thanks for getting back to us. It's great to know that the forum helped you preparing for your trip. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Switzerland - again! It's too bad though that the weather wasn't that fine, but at least you got to see part of the Matterhorn this time. The Swiss Pass offers great ease of use indeed, and it seems that you profited quite well from all its advantages. I fully understand that you want to get back to Switzerland as soon as possible. It's kind of an addiction, isn't it? I don't have knowledge of Christmas markets. This Christmas market website
may help you, but it mainly mentions the markets you're already aware of. It seems that these are the largest ones, so if you manage to visit Basel, Zurich, Bern and Montreux, you'd get to see the most important markets anyway. There's one in Geneva
too. This is rather close to Montreux and Biel, so you could combine these. The website of Hotel Les Armures
in Geneva offers more information on Christmas celebration activities.
As for the weather: it's a bit hard to say what it will be like early December. It will probably be rather cold and it can even be very cold and snowy. So be prepared for cold weather and take along appropiate winter clothing, especially if you plan on going up in the mountains as well.
