Züri Fäscht 2019 may well be over now, but what a party it was! Zurich’s festival of all festivals only takes place once every three years, but with the number of attractions involved and the amount of planning you can imagine they probably need three years to plan the next one.

The trams stopped running in the centre of the city and most streets were pedestrianised for the duration of the three days. The lake was alive with boats as people came out on their pleasure boats to enjoy the (mostly) sunny weather and see and hear the events from the water.

After Friday’s sunny and hot opening it wasn’t plain sailing on the weather front for Saturday as the heavens opening early afternoon and there was a huge storm on the lake. However it soon calmed down again and everything was back on track in true Swiss fashion.

When you’re standing right above it and about to jump it suddenly seems quite steep! However, you are safely strapped into a harness – so it’s just the first few seconds before you step off the wall which are daunting!

At the bottom you ended up on a little platform floating on the Limmatquai.

Music and Illuminations

There were all types of music playing all over Zurich, all day and into the night and many buildings were illuminated too.
