Swiss Up! Sechseläuten (8 April 2019)

Swiss Up! // Community// Explore Switzerland// Science & Technology// Health// General // By Mark // April 8, 2019

Today (6 April 2019) is the Sechseläuten in Zurich. The city's biggest festival to mark the start of summer. It dates back to the Middle Ages and features the Böög - a large snowman in the middle of the city which is set on fire. It has explosives in the head and how long it takes to explode will tell us how good the summer will be!
