Spectator Info

Spectator highlights 



Everyone who wants to keep the moment in memory has the chance to take a picture at the photo corner of ewz. If you stay there you will also not miss the award ceremony. In case you get cold you can warm up in the pavilion where you can get a traditional soupe, raclette, or sweets. In the pavilion we also have a podiums discussion with the “Regierungspräsident” Mario Fehr, CEO/Director of Zurich Tourismus Martin Sturzenegger and the OC President Bruno Lafranchi. You will not miss anything.

Along the track

On the entire track we have 14 stalls with sausages, spears, crêpes, hot waffles and roasted chestnuts.

At the Radio Zürisee Tower you can ask for your favourite christmas song and feel like a dj.


Grossmünster terrace

From the Grossmünster terrace you can enjoy the magnificent view on the Limmatquai, the shiny old town of Zurich, and the 40. Zürcher Silvesterlauf.


Fraumünster street

The finish line for all categories will be in the Fraumünster street where spectators can welcome their dearest and the children get a fabulous medal.
