Christmas Tree Lighting


A bright start to the festive season

Baur au Lac park
5:30 to 7:00 p.m.

At six o’clock sharp, more than 70,000 lights on Zurich’s tallest Christmas tree will be turned on to usher in the Advent period. As every year, hotel guests and local residents are welcome to the Baur au Lac park to share mulled wine and biscuits with us as we light up the Christmas tree. Santa Claus and his able assistant will light up the children’s faces, and Pastor Katharina Hoby-Peter will beseech divine blessings.

Modern Christmas songs and traditional carols are the ideal way to conjure up a festive mood. Singer/songwriter Levin Deger and singer Nyssina, two up-and-coming Swiss artists, will be live on stage. Aromatic Darjeeling or Oolong tea will then be served to warm you up in Le Hall.

Dinner in a cheerfully relaxed atmosphere adds the finishing touch to a perfect evening. Celebrate the art of fine casual dining at the Rive Gauche, or discover the exquisite culinary creations of Laurent Eperon – complete with a marvelous view of the Christmas tree lights in the park – at Le Pavillon.
