For the first time in its history, the burning of the Böögg will not take place in Zurich on April 19, 2021. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, in order to prevent crowds gathering, it will be burned on the Devil’s Bridge in the Schöllenen Gorge, in Canton Uri.

Fans can nevertheless experience the spectacle live: shortly before 6 pm on April 19, 2021, a live stream directly from the Schöllenen Gorge will begin here:
