Sechseläuten

Edit This

The spring festival is usually held on the third Monday in April. On Sundays, a children's parade takes place. Main attractions are the parade of the guilds, dressed in historical costumes, through the centre of the city, and the burning of the 'Böogg'. The 'Böögg' is a snowman made of cotton, wool and stuffed with fireworks. He is set afire on Sechseläutenwiese at 6p.m. on the dot. This ritual celebrates the end of winter. On the Monday evening, the members of the various guilds visit each other in their respective guildhalls, bearing lanterns and playing music.
