Lichterschwimmen in Zurich

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t miss the very pretty and quaint tradition of “Lichterschwimmen” on Thursday December 20th at 6pm as hundreds of candles are lit and released onto the river Limmat and then float gently downstream. It all happens just off Weinplatz near Stadhausquai and as the children float the lights gently on the water, you can watch them sail downstream along the Limmat. The Zurich tourist office will be providing refreshments at Weinplatz – so grab something hot and wrap up warmly as the lights sail by. If you want a view right by the river it’s advisable to  get there a little earlier as the lights start setting sail promptly at 6pm.
