Zurich candle swimming event


When hundreds of shining candles are floating on the river Limmat and fill the cold season of Advent with warmth - then it's the night of the event "Lichterschwimmen".

Since more than 50 years both visitors and inhabitants of Zurich look forward to the magic of this tradition. All of them come together at the Rathausbrücke. At 6 pm the event is starting and hundreds of self-made little ships with shiny lights on board go on their journey on the Limmat. They turn the river into an atmospheric sea of lights and fill the spectators along the riverside with warmth.
