Re: One-time free or good deal events

Just like every year, the Zurich Opera will start the season with a big party and a full day of events from behind-the-scenes visits through public rehearsals to visits at the costume makers and much more. All day, for all ages, indoors and outdoors. September 23, 2017

Re: One-time free or good deal events

Hi, Alberose,

Just FYI, I also started a thread a while ago for permanent free offers: https://www.englishforum.ch/travel-d...itzerland.html

I thought it might be easier to separate the thread where old stuff is outdated (i.e., this one) from the one with all time recommendations. Still, you might find useful information in the other one, too.

Hallwylplatzfest in Zurich is on, on August 25.08.2017. They offer a program for kids, and it should be just a fun afternoon and evening for all.

Re: One-time free or good deal events

Events in Geneva:
- From September 25 to October 1, a show with huge puppets will be visiting Geneva, and there will be events all over the city, apparently. https://www.facebook.com/KidInGeneva...39860156167504

- Every year on December 11, there is a big parade with historical costumes, and the city opens buildings that are not open to the public, the rest of the year, to commemorate the failure of the Savoy's attempt to conquer the town, on Dec. 11/12, in 1602. It's called the Escalade, and, obviously, free. https://www.myswitzerland.com/en-ch/...geneva-ge.html

Re: One-time free or good deal events

In May and June, 2018, choirs will sing all over town, in Zurich backyards. Choirs of all types participate - classical, traditional, yodelling, school choirs, jazz, etc. - and it is a great opportunity to check out different choirs if you consider going to a concert or even joining a choir to sing yourself. Obviously, there is no entrance fee, you can just go and listen.

On 18 April, starting at 7pm, the Laudate Choir will sing a free concert with some readings (in German), in the Grosse Reformierte Kirche Zürich-Altstetten.

Music: Stabat Mater - Haydn; Zelenka, Bach

Maybe some of you are looking to join a choir, then it would be the perfect chance to check this choir out!
