4. There is still ice skating to be had!  Why not do some ice skating at the Dolderbahn, at Live on Ice in Kusnacht or take the children skating on Saturday (closed Sunday) at the ice skating rink at Glattzentrum

5. If your children haven’t ridden on the Marlitram yet with Father Christmas and his angels it might be worth checking at Jelmoli to see if there are any spaces left – otherwise one to put on the list for next year.

The Singing Christmas Tree

6. Do catch the Singing Christmas Tree if you haven’t already. The Singing Christmas Tree is located just off Bahnhofstrasse in Werdmuhlelplatz. This Saturday and Sunday are the last days to watch until next year. Here are the details of the times etc.
