14. Zurich Film Festival

From 27th September to 7th October 2018, Zurich will transform into a film capital. The aim of the Zurich Film Festival is to offer audiences insight into the work of the most promising filmmakers from around the globe, and to promote the exchange of ideas between established film workers, creative talent and the public.

Jazz at the Dolder Grand

New Year’s Eve at the Dolder Grand

To see out the year in style, our exclusive Ballroom opens its doors for a very special event. Enjoy the gala dinner with live music, dazzling show acts and dance the night away into the early hours of New Year’s Day. Or you enjoy a gourmet dinner in The Restaurant or an evening meal in the Saltz restaurant. Afterwards, you have the best views of Zurich and the fireworks.


The 8 April 2018 is reserved for the city’s most important occasion, Sechseläuten, which kicks off with a parade of the guilds to Sechseläutenplatz. At 6.00 p.m., a bonfire is set alight and the “Böögg” – a snowman made of papier mâché – is placed on top of it and left to meet his fate.

Züri Fäscht

From 5 to 7 July 2019 the lower basin of Lake Zurich is transformed into one big party venue: for three days, hundreds of thousands of visitors celebrate the “Züri Fäscht” in the parks on both sides of the lake.
