The Bookshop Orell Füssli: A jolly good Christmas

Christmas is in full swing on Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse, and no more so than in the biggest English-language bookshop on the European continent. Santa is sliding down his chimney in ‘The Bookshop’s’ window display; inside, boxes full of Christmas crackers (from CHF 3.90) and mince pies (from CHF 15.90) are stacked high, and Christmas stockings in different colours and designs (from CHF 9.90) adorn the walls. A home away from home for English-speakers.
