Salto Natale – Christmas Show in Zurich


Salto Natale Zurich

Following on with the theme of traditional Swiss Christmas Shows, one show we must not forget to mention is the “Salto Natale” Winter circus. It takes place just outside Zurich in Kloten, not far from the airport, and is renowned for its acrobatics and spectacular acts.

With trapeze artists, gymnasts and all manner of spectacular acts this is a Christmas circus not to miss. The photos shown here were taken by photographer Geoff Pegler and capture some of the excitement and drama of this very entertaining show.

    Greetings,
    My name is Taofeek and i am the owner of “saltonatale.com ”. I had planned to develop this into a great site, but other projects are currently encompassing my time. “saltonatale.com ” is very short, descriptive, and could be used for your main site or to complement it. The term ”saltonatale.com” has a very high volume of monthly traffic and has well over hits on Google page ranking. If you have any interest in owning it please let me know through my e-mail below with a reasonable/fair offer. Thank you for your time.

    Best Regards,
    Taofeek Alimi,
