What to do in Zurich?

Züri Fäscht 2016

1. – 3. Juli 2016
Hundreds of thousands of visitors gather for the greatest city festival in Switzerland.
The Züri Fäscht provides fun and entertainment for all generations and tastes, both around the lake and throughout the inner city, on land, on water and in the air. The different rides are fun, the tight-rope and trapeze acrobatics breathtaking, the countless concerts and mobile discos hip-swinging and the two great musical firework displays, set off from the lake on Friday and Saturday evening (11pm-11.30pm), are truly spectacular.

Useful information


Enjoy the nice view from Uetliberg and Felsenegg or take Boat Trips on Lake Zurich or Greifensee. For day trips get inspired by Zurich tourismus. An insider tip is the Technorama in Winterthur. If it is warm enough do not miss having a bath either in the lake or the river.
