If you’re in Zurich for New Year’s Eve prepare for a big party! The whole area around Lake Zurich will be transformed with fireworks and celebrations.

Known as Silvesterzauber, (New Year’s Magic in English), the traditional Zurich New Year Firework display is not only free to watch but also amazingly spectacular. The fireworks can be viewed from far and wide across the city so if you can’t get to the lake, find a tall building!

Magic Lake Zone and Guest Tent

As usual, there will be a variety of food stalls with snacks and tempting delights from all over the world. There will also be many pop up bars serving refreshments all around the lake. The festival site stretches right around the lake in Zurich – from Limmatquai via Bellevue up to Utoquai, as well as over the Quai bridge and as far as General Guisan-Quai.

However, there is also a separate Magic Lake Zone and Guest Tent for which entrance tickets need to be purchased.

Over 100,000 visitors are expected to attend the event, not only from Switzerland but from all over the globe. In fact New Year’s eve in Zurich is the biggest New Year celebration in Switzerland. Come along and join in the fun! The fireworks kick off at 00.20 and last till 00.35.
