Things To Do In Zurich Beginning of April 2022
It’s a bit colder in Zurich so hopefully you haven’t changed out your Winter types just get and that you got to enjoy the places with the best blossoms in Zurich before the wind and rain started blowing them away. Luckily the Expovina Primavera Wine event is taking place at PULS5 – so it should be a great place to visit this weekend. Don’t forget to visit Sport Shop Time Out in Uster this weekend as they have a great sale on sports equipment and they are also organising a 5km /10km FREE fun run in aid of Ukraine at 10am on Saturday 2nd April and are donating CHF 10 for each person taking part. You can find a lot of information on things to do in in support of Ukraine in this article too. The free Tulip Festival in Morges continues until 8th May with more tulips coming into flower every week. If you don’t mind the wind, how about a ride on the Nostalgie Ferris wheel in Bürkliplatz? Don’t forget Easter is just around the corner and it’s not long now till Sechselaeuten and the Burning of the Böögg!
Do mark your diaries for Man’s World from 5th- 8th May and enter our contest to win one of 5 pairs of tickets we have on offer!
