Candle Making at Bürkliplatz

Candle making has been among Zurich's Advent traditions since 1969.

Amidst the hectic hustle and bustle of the Advent period, an oasis of tranquillity can be found at Zurich‘s Bürkliplatz. The music pavilion, which has been covered by a tent, invites visitors of all ages to come and make their own candles. In the darkness of the tent, with the bittersweet aroma of beeswax hanging in the air, there is an almost meditative ambience, as people dip a long wick into the hot, molten wax and try to make the most beautiful candle. Incidentally, if you do not have enough time to finish your masterpiece, you can leave your candle in the “candle checkroom” and return to finish it later.
