The annual Zibelemärit, or onion market, in Berne is an annual celebration that takes place on the fourth Monday in November, transforming the Swiss capital into a vibrant place where tradition, gastronomy and craftsmanship meet. Zibelemärit usually gets started early in the morning, often around 5 o’clock. The festivities last all day until early afternoon. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early to take full advantage of the experience, especially to avoid the crowds that form throughout the day.
