Can anyone recommend a particularly good place for young children to do Candle Dipping around Zürich?
Thanks

Yes, have you been to the Bürkliplatz one? On the pictures it looks like all the candles (wax) are the same colour? I was thinking of somewhere where the children can be creative and maybe decorate their candle after too...

Klusplatz - there's a tent in the park of the Seniors' Home. They have coloured wax and beeswax and it's organised by the Parents Association of the Hottingen area (Elternverein 7) and the Community Centre Hottingen.

The candle-making this year takes place from this Saturday, 12th November until 20th November:

Saturday/Sunday 12./13 and 19./20. November: 10 am - 5.30 pm
Monday - Friday 14. - 18. November: 1.30 pm - 5.30 pm

There's also beeswax candle-making in the St. Antons Kirche just off Klosbachstrasse/Minervastrasse - but I don't know the times. There will be big signs put up as soon as it's on.

Also in Seefeld area: the Community Centre Riesbach - Dates still unknown to me, but will be towards end November. See homepage of GZ Riesbach

I imagine other community centres in Zurich will organise something like this too.

Actually, it's still too warm to make them. What we really need is some ice-cold weather, so that they harden quicker.
