Wädenswiler Chilbi Sat 22/08 to Mon 24/08

As mentioned by DB here, it is well worth the trip to the Wädenswiler Chilbi ( Sat 22/08 right up to Mon 24/08 ) if time permits and if you do not mind crowds by the hundreds.

Express Chur train from Zurich HB leaves at every 12mins past the hour on Gleis 7 stopping only first at Thalwil and arrives at 32 minutes past the hour, or there is the S2 and S8 ( all stations ) from Gleis 52-53.

I have a decent view of it from my flat ( unfortunately I'll be at work throughout ) - enclosed pictures show some preparations as visible from my window.

But if you do come, please remember that I need my sleep and keep your voices down a little after 10.00 p.m.

For some reason, the Stadt Polizei here are relaxed about noise whenever events like this are held. As I look out from my window, I already see a small curious crowd looking at the final preparations.

All the stuff are brought in by a special rail service that arrives late at night with the workers working hard on almost every night ( 11.30pm to 4am ) this week.

Only a few more hours to ago!

Don't miss out on this year's Chilbi 21-23 August. Preparations have begun to welcome thousands of visitors.

Does anyone know when the Chilbi opens on Sunday Aug 22? I have been searching the web but haven't been able to locate it. Appreciate any info.

Thanks for the quick reply but I can't see the specific time that the Chilbi opens tomorrow. That is the key piece of info that I can not find on the web.

Re: Wädenswiler Chilbi Sat 22/08 to Mon 24/08

You are great!

I like the way you care about this Chilbi.
But I do not like this kind of stuff for entertainment. To nosy and to crowdy for me. It takes also a lot of money away, when you are into that trap. Well, this is only my oppinion

Anyway have fun! Take care.

Re: Wädenswiler Chilbi Sat 22/08 to Mon 24/08

I wonder why you take so much interest in this Chilbi...
There is one in every town, every year and the Wädenswiler Chilbi belongs to the most crowded and worst laid out ones I know. (although that's not their fault, the town is just not made for it)

The best part of the Chilbi is the Glärnisch Boat, which was made in to a swimming restaurant and club and is at the lakeside in Wädi all year round. I won't be there tonight but it's always worth a visit.

The one from Wädi is pretty big and popular and I make it a point to highlight events that might be useful for families or anyone else who might need an idea or two for an outing, especially from projects that I am involved.

Cheers and have a great weekend.
