This year it will include a devotion from pastor Sefan Roth and an address by slam poet Kilian Ziegler. Bell ringing to mark the occasion and a firework display will follow in Zermatt in the evening.
The Zermatt fireworks are unique. They are broken down into two parts. First, Bengali flames burn high above Zermatt in the Turuwang to the west of Zermatt. The Turuwang remains intensively lit for many minutes – the cliffs take on bizarre light and shadow forms. The result is a quiet and very special romantic setting.
After the Bengali flames have burnt out, the rockets of the great fireworks ascend into the heights from a hill next to the Triftbach in different colours and bouquets.
