What's going on in Switzerland this weekend?

My husband and I have an all-day rail pass and we were thinking of using it tomorrow (Saturday). Too many times I find out about cool festivals, etc, only after the fact, so I am asking the collective wisdom of EF for any suggestions of what might be happening tomorrow (or even Sunday).

We are not sure if we want to just wander the country on the rails, or go somewhere specific for an event, etc.



What comes to the top of your head?

Here's an indoor fleamarket that is open only on Saturdays (in Zurich):

What a strange recommendation, that place is literally rubbish a bit like Helvetiaplatz The Bürkliplatz Markt is much better it has antiques and interesting stuff is also on.

Art 17 is on in Oerlikon.

No idea what else is happening though.

Check Zürich Tourisms website

Thanks, I haven't been there, just saw it online.

The Helvetiaplatz fleamarket is, in my opinion, also a good idea... for anyone who finds it interesting to stroll through and see all sorts of "junk", in other words not all junk. Many of the sellers there are private persons getting rid of their own possessions, so the quaility is, naturally, very variable.

Yes, the Burkliplatz fleamarket tends to be more up-market, with collector items, and so on.
