stands for the annual spring festival Sechseläuten held in April. This event starts with a horse parade through the town followed by the bell ringing of Zurich’s Grossmünster Cathedral. At 6.00 pm, a big stack of wood with “Böög”, the snowman on top is lit. It is said that the faster the head of the snowman falls off, the nicer the summer will be. Don’t believe this story? Then visit Zurich in April to witness this truly amazing event!
