Pulsating city life day and night

Kaufleuten Zürich
Zürich offers the liveliest nightlife with the highest density of clubs in Switzerland: everything from parties at the legendary Kaufleuten to the best of the 1980s at Mascotte, the city’s oldest club, and the alternative scene around the Rote Fabrik.

In summer, nightlife can be found not only in the clubs, but also outside in the open air; the venues where visitors bathe and relax during the day are ideal places to flirt and dance at night.

Winter & Christmas in Zürich

Advent season in Zürich: The entire city is bathed in cheery light, the air is filled with the scent of cinnamon and mulled wine, and the sounds of Advent concerts waft over the River Limmat. At the traditional Christmas markets and in Zürich’s shops, both locals and visitors find inspiration for gifts and can treat themselves to delectable delicacies. The Christmas circuses are as much a part of the season as the New Year’s Eve Magic with its legendary fireworks display hosted by the Zurich Hoteliers’ Association. Thanks to the new Christmas lighting display on Bahnhofstrasse in the city center and special “Night and Sunday Shopping,” visitors to Zürich can expect even more highlights during the Advent season.
