Options for Christmas photos with Santa in Zurich?

I’m looking to take Christmas photos as a family with Santa. In the US the major malls and department stores have photo ops. In the UK, there is Santa’s grotto setup. What about in Zurich?

I checked Jelmoli and they have the Santa tram but not photos. Nothing at Globus. Looking at older threads here and this was asked but no current options exist.

Looking to do the photos this weekend if possible. Thanks!

Re: Options for Christmas photos with Santa in Zurich?

There is no "Santa" in (at least not in the German part of) Switzerland. There is Samichlaus (which has been on the 6th) and then there is "Christkind" which brings the presents. So no. It won't be easy.

If you are willing to travel, check Rocher de Naye, they have a house of Santa. But that is near Montreux. https://www.goldenpass.ch/en/goldenp...fer/view?id=68

When my little one was still smaller than me, we did the photos in Manor GE. I think it is still happening.

Coca-Cola Christmas truck will also be there as of 13:00, including a Santa-biker tour coming in around 14:00

They will have a Photo Booth with Samichlaus from 13:00-14:00 (expect this to be busy of even very busy with nice weather)

Oh damn, sorry. Yeah the date is correct. we're all having a severe cold at home, so my brain is at 50% :P

There are plenty of opportunities for such picture, but all I know are around the 6th/7th/8th

They could rent a santa outfit and dress up the neighbour in front of their own tree, add some candles and it all might look great.

Re: Options for Christmas photos with Santa in Zurich?

You know the real reason you couldn't find Santa to take a picture with?


(Looks around furtively, whispers)


He doesn't exist...

PS. Apologies to little ones (and maybe not so little ones?) reading, to whom this news may come as a shock.
