Our round up of things to do in May across Switzerland, including popular events, festivals, attractions, free activities, stuff for kids to do, entertainment and more.
Summer is truly underway in Switzerland when people start to take to the rivers, lake “beaches” and badis (public bathing areas at the lake) in their droves. So whether you're looking to swim yourself fit or simply take a refreshing dip, nothing beats a swim in the open air. The summer season opens on May 14, 2016.
Take an early morning stroll across the vast grounds or just sit and relax for a while on a sunny afternoon. The botanical garden is rarely crowded and can deliver instant peace and happiness when you stumble upon a pretty flower or watch the branches of the old trees swing with the wind.
Théâtre Sévelin 36 is both a showcase and breeding ground for dancers. Workshops are organized throughout the year, including with children. On 8,9 and 10 May, it will be one of the main venues for the nationwide Dance festival open to anyone who loves dance.
