Why you should attend this event?
If there is one day, where the entire country comes together for a common cause, it has to be the Swiss National Day. The festival marks an occasion of fireworks, bonfires, cultural gatherings, music, speeches, national anthem, illuminated buildings and unison. Try to get on a board if you are in proximity to a lake to watch the festival unfold in all its grandeur.
Who should attend this event?
Anyone who is in Switzerland around the first of August should definitely get out of accommodation and take part in the festivities. Most of the attractions and transportations are closed and the best way to unwind is by enjoying the fun.
