Zurich's tallest Christmas tree stands in front of the Baur au Lac
Festive opening of the pre-Christmas period: Christmas tree lighting in the park of the Baur au Lac
People from near and far come together at this time of the year to see Zurich's largest Christmas tree shining on time at 6 pm. Over 60,000 lights shine on the Park in front of Baur au Lac and not just "Samichlaus" and "Schmutzli" are there, but also Pastor Katharina Hoby-Peter with her request for help from above. The live performance of singer-songwriter Levin Deger and singer Sabrina Auer, two up-and-coming talented Swiss artists, with a repertoire of modern and classic Christmas carols, create also a traditional Christmas atmosphere.
If you goto the bright Christmas tree, you can't miss out on the delicious creations of Chef Laurent Eperon and his team. You can find them at the gazebo in the pavilion behind the large picture window.Alternatively, the trendy Rive Gauche offers the Baur au Lac's restaurant "Fine Casual Dining" experiences.
As part of this extended Christmas tradition in Zurich, which has been going on for 14 years there are other interesting events happening at Baur au Lac. The Lifeofanit-girl team will keep you updated.
