Midsommer

So, does Switzerland or Zurich have a midsummer drinking and shagging festival somewhere? I miss the land of the midnight sun for its pagan celebration of the summer solstice though I'll understand if it has a lesser significance down south. I could use a reason/excuse to party.

Tempting. Hrm, are drunken bonfires something you can plan for around here without getting arrested though? Is there a nordic-themed pub in Zurich that might do instead?

I didn't see anything there pertaining to a shag-fest.

Re: Midsommer

Maybe my imagination got the better of me: salad buffet, sandy beach, open fire, sauna, several pools.. I suppose you have to bring your own shag partner, this IS still Switzerland!
