November 26, 2021 Christmas Tree Lighting
At the Baur au Lac, the annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony is the radiant start to the festive season. We are delighted to once again celebrate this beloved tradition with you at the Baur au Lac Park.
Gather your family and friends under Zurich's tallest Christmas tree, enjoy a steaming cup of mulled wine together with some fine biscuits, and join the Baur au Lac team and pastor Katharina Hoby-Peter in the countdown to illuminating over 70,000 fairy lights.
Saint Nicholas and his Swiss companion Schmutzli will of course honour us again with their presence and bring along a few sweet treats for our little guests. Singer-songwriter Jack Zhoul will accompany the magical scenery with a repertoire of modern and classic Christmas songs.
Admission from 5:00 pm
Start of the programme: 5:45 pm
Important information regarding advance ticket sale & Covid certificate:
The dazzling event has gained so much popularity in Zurich over the past 18 years that even the sprawling Baur au Lac Park has been pushed to its capacity limits. For this reason, admission this year requires the purchase of an online ticket priced at CHF 5.00 and is only possible with a valid Covid certificate. Tickets are limited. There will be no box office on the evening of the event.
As an early Christmas gift, all proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Children's Hospital Zurich.
