If you’re looking for a show or some traditional festive entertainment in Zurich over the Christmas period there are a couple of traditional circuses on offer, for example Conelli running until the 6th January and Salto Natale running until the 2nd January and there is also the “Swiss Christmas” show which is on until the 31st December and takes place in a great big white tent close to the Hallenstadion in Oerlikon.
Although not billed as a circus, Swiss Christmas features acrobatics, trapeze acts, dancing, singing, comedy acts and an amazing magic show by conjurer Peter Marvey. Most of the acts are more visual than verbal, so you can follow what is going on with only minimal German although many of the introductions to acts and any comedy routines will be in German or Swiss German. However, you don’t need much German to get the gist!
By now, many of the performances for all three productions are selling out, however, there are still tickets to be had – please click on the blue links above for more information.
