You know it’s nearly Christmas when you see the familiar sight of the red top at Bauschänzli with the words “Conelli” written in bold. Situated right on the Limmat and close to Bürkliplatz. Right on the bank of the Limmat, the Gasser Family celebrate this amazing Zurich tradition each year. Each season’s event runs right through the Christmas and Advent season.

The circus acts are extremely well executed by consummate professionals. When we visited we saw some fabulous acrobats, a couple of  clowns with a slapstick comedy routine, along with amazing dancers, singers and wonderful acrobats, jugglers and entertainers. It is truly entertaining and the acts transition perfectly before your eyes. It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak German; the only scene that really used any language was the one with the clowns and in their act, action speaks far louder than words in any case!

If you’ve never been before then do get some tickets while they’re still available as they are liable to sell out fast and it’s a great event for the whole family. For more information and to buy tickets please go to the Conelli website here.
