Sechseläuten - Spring Festival in Zurich (CANCELLED)

Due to the measures adopted in connection to the Coronavirus, the festival will not take place in 2020.

The traditional festival goes all the way back to the 16th century, and originally was related to the extension of working hours due to the longer daytime. On Sunday (this year on 7 April) a children's procession opens the celebration, next day the main festival goes on, where a symbolic snowman, called the Böögg, is going to be set on fire.
