Celebrate August 1 in the country's capital city.

Bundesfeier - Swiss National Day - is celebrated in style in the country's capital city. This year offers a packed programme of events for all ages. Take the rare opportunity to visit the Bundeshaus (parliament house) as well as other significant buildings, including guided tours of the Zytglogge clock tower. Join in a communal brunch in Münsterplatz; watch the charming children's lantern parade; then finish up with fireworks over Gurten Park in the evening.
