Christmas Lights & Night Shopping
Zurich’s Christmas lights will give a special brilliance to the city center during the Advent season.
From November 21, Zurich will shine out more brightly than ever. For then, at 6pm precisely, “Lucy” – as the Christmas lights are called – will be switched on. The Christmas illuminations in Zurich's famous shopping street, the Bahnhofstrasse, comprise almost 12,000 crystals containing luminescent white, red, and blue LED lights, producing dots of color of varying intensity in the sky.
In the streets and alleys of Zurich's historic center, the sparkling illuminations create a particularly romantic Christmas atmosphere. What’s more, on the same evening, visitors can enjoy late-night shopping in the inner city until 10pm, fortified by the culinary delicacies and mulled wine on sale at the numerous food stands.
