Pop-up Christmas Market, Gland
A number of local artists and creators have joined forces and are offering you a lovely Christmas market experience in Gland. On offer are women’s clothing, candles, Christmas gifts, handmade textiles, Indian food by Feel Bliss, organic products, second-hand clothes, a stone Therapist and lots more.
There’s also a cosy kids corner where you can enjoy a coffee or a mango lassi while your kids are occupied. Lunch dates are also possible here in this pop-up space.
Do you know what the L´Escalade is in Geneva? It’s really a unique event with an interesting history that happens at this time of the year in our neighbouring big city.
If you want to know more, there’s a fun filled, informative tour held by All around Geneva this weekend. Even though the official Escalade Cortege has been cancelled, you still have the chance to immerse yourself in some Geneva history.
Tour about Escalade: Time travel to 1602 as we unfold an extraordinary series of events which led, with unbelievable luck, to the defeat of Geneva’s longstanding enemy the Duke of Savoy and to the liberation of the City and Independent Republic of Geneva. We will unravel a few established facts centred around THE famous soup, keys, canons & ladders and celebrate of course this unique weekend where chocolate cauldrons full of marzipan vegetables, ‘ les marmites en chocolat’, tempt us at each chocolaterie’s window display. A little quiz completes our walk!
Remember…still going on!
