New Year is not New Year in Zurich without fireworks – and this year as usual the Zurich Hoteliers Association will put on a splendid display. The fireworks go off from a platform in the lake (see map below) and there is good viewing to be had from all around the city side of the lake as well of from high above too – up by the university you can get great views and of course from Uetliberg too.

You can go along for a fancy dinner or to one of the parties that are on that night – or you can even “do DIY” and go down to the lake with your champagne and toast in the New Year with all the crowds flocking beside the lake to do the same. Things start getting lively from 8pm onwards and the fireworks last from 12.20 – 12.40am. You can buy snacks and drinks from vendors and there is a special relaxed atmosphere which makes it such fun. Best of all you know that the SBB will be on hand to take you home safely when it’s all over! The last trains and trams etc leave at 4am – which leaves you plenty of time to party. See the programme below:

However, if you are planning on going to a restaurant or to a party you need to make a booking as things sell out fast.

There are parties at Vior, at Aura and special menus at Restaurant Uto Kulm. Or how about going to the Maag Halle for an Elektro Evening at the Härterei with Martin Garrix, Disco D, Cruz or to the Hive for an evening of dance and DJs? There’s something for everyone!

Whatever you do have fun and enjoy your Silvester! Wishing you all a “guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr”. For more information please read here.
