Many Swiss celebrate New Year’s Eve with a dinner with the family - either at home or out at a restaurant - and go out to party later. Lots of restaurants offer special deals for New Year’s Eve, usually consisting of a more or less extended menu and champagne at midnight. Choose your favourite restaurant in our restaurant chapter - and don’t forget to call them as a reservation is essential. It goes without saying that all the bars and clubs in town have New Year’s Eve decoration and parties - including rather high New Year’s Eve admission fees. If you’re not travelling in too large numbers, bar hopping might be a good alternative to a club option, even though the city will be really crowded, especially around the Niederdorf area.
