Christmas in Zurich

Illuminarium - Light Festival

This year there will be a new kind of Christmas event called Illuminarium next to the main train station in the courtyard of the Swiss National Museum. Visitors can expect a magical winter world of light, illumination, illusion, music and culinary delights featuring storytelling and mysterious creatures like Yuki presented as light installations for the whole family. While no admission fee is required for part of the area, there will also be a light trail for which you need a ticket (13/8/5Sfr). The organisers have promised that you can expect food stalls, a light tent and a cocktail bar providing some beats later on in the evening. We're, no doubt, as curious as you are and will definitely pay this new event a visit.
