New Year’s Eve in Zurich

Unfortunately, in 2020/2021, Zurich’s popular New Year’s Eve celebration, “Silvesterzauber”, cannot take place in the same form as in previous years.

Instead, Zurich will see out the year 2020 with “Silvesterzauber Light”, in which light artist Gerry Hofstetter will bathe various buildings in the area around Limmatquai and in downtown Zurich in a festive light. The illuminations can be admired between 5pm on New Year’s Eve and 2am on New Year’s Day.
