Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: Bahnhof Enge, Zurich

Hello awesome EF members!

this coming monday, there will be a big event happening right at the heart of the Zurich city.

it is Sechseläuten people! woohoo. let's go and celebrate the end of winter and welcome the warm and cosy summer!

the event will take place actually in the area around Bellevue, but since it will be heavily packed with people there, the organisers guess that it would be better to meet a little further away and then we can make our way there together.

it would be a meet-up and at the end we will be doing some barbeque after the Böögg is exploded.

details:

meeting point: Bahnhof Enge
time: 17:00 (5pm)


what are you waiting for? rsvp and let's go!

ps: there will be someone that can explain what Sechseläuten actually is when you come. relax!

pps: those who are working in Zurich city will be having half a day off. just a fyi.

ppps: i will be telling you guys how you can find me nearer to the date.

cheers!

A cap and a limousine would be ok for me.

Re: Sechseläuten meet-up and bbq

Just a tip - if you meet at Enge at 5pm you are unlikely to get anywhere near the Böög until after the main event has finished. The area is usually packed with people and you can't push through.

After 5pm it is nearly impossible to get to Bellevue. Maybe we just go down to the lake and have a few beers. After the official parade and after the Böög exploded we can leave for the Sechsiläutenwiese to the Volkswurstbraten.

Re: Sechseläuten meet-up and bbq

Very roughly by when do you expect the Böög to be a goner today ?

(meaning possible to get down to Bellevue)

So prof, what time are you planning to move in Bellevue?
I'd like to join, but I would prefer to avoid to push people to see a white puppet exploding... so I was thinking the earlier the better... and of course more time to drink beer

The BBQ on the Sächsilüütewiese will start around 7.30 to 8.00pm. At 6.30pm the Böög will be exploded and most people will leave. From there you'll have to wait for at least an hour to get to Bellevue without pushing.

Thanks for organising a top notch evening Aldo, especially the 4-hour sausage grilling. They turned out pretty good.

Re: Sechseläuten meet-up and bbq

Ooh I missed the mass sausage grilling at the end..too tired by then :P

For the German readers amongst us, there's a funny article in the NZZ about the three different types of people at the festival - I think they say they're called the 'party-goers', the 'amazed onlookers' and the 'front-row flirts'.

Can't see it online yet, but it's p.18 of the NZZ Zurich section.
