All the locals know it: the annual Sechseläuten spring festival with its legendary "Burning of the Böögg". But what are the origins of this beloved festival?
During the tour, we explain how the guilds were founded and what they mean to Zurich. Participants are also treated to an architectural feast as we pass by majestic guild houses that characterize the city´s urban landscape. We also explore the political and economic effects of the guilds and discuss the reasons why the guilds´ constitution was eventually abolished.
