Züri Fäscht 2016 Countdown

Grossmunster Zurich

As our out-of-town guests will tell you, we like to include a trip to Zürich on the itinerary when they visit. We often head there on our own too.

This photo was taken during July 2013’s Züri Fäscht party. Züri Fäscht is Switzerland’s largest festival. A weekend-long street festival filled with music, fireworks and other special events (all FREE!!!). The next one takes place July 1 – 3, 2016, so there’s still plenty time to make your travel plans. Don’t wait too long though, it’s a popular event.

Thinking about visiting Zürich sooner? Pop on over to the travel post that I recently had the pleasure of writing for Maureen Richmond’s blog bluemopheads.
