Is Knabenschiessen a half school day or day off?

Just double checking.. our kids' Ferienplan says Knabenschiessen is a day off, but for other friends its a school day... Should we send them or can they sleep in? Just double checking

It's a day off for my daughter here in Meilen, and I know it's definitely a day off for a friend's daughter in Zürich (near Römerhof).

Re: Is Knabenschiessen a half school day or day off?

Meanwhile, is anything (stores, I mean) open in the afternoon?

We are coming up (from TI) for the day, but won't get there until 12PM or so.

Thanks,

Tom

There is the large funfare at Albisgutli which is where they have the Knabenschiessen. End of tramline 13.
All schools in Stadt Zuerich have the day iff.(you wont be the only ones there!)

Go shopping when still in the Cantons of Luzern, Zug etc. In Zurich City and outer suburbs, the rule is schools closed all day, business closed in the afternoon. Just seen on Sunday that even Coop Stadelhofen station will be closed on Sächsilüüte afternoon

Knabenschiessen is a public holiday from midday in the town of Zurich. In the rest of the canton shops are generally open as usual...
