Go up high for the August 1st firework display

For a very special view of the August 1st firework display, make your way up to the Gurten. The visual experience will be enhanced by feeling the ground vibrate as each rocket goes off. It`s amazing! In the Restaurant Gurtners, open from 11.30 to 14.00 and 18.00 to 23.30, you can enjoy a 4-course gala dinner with stunning views of the city starting at 18.00.

Meanwhile, the self-service restaurant Tapis Rouge will be serving a lavish brunch from 9.00 to 14.00, and from 18.00, a «scrumptious» traditional August 1st buffet. From 17.00 until midnight the Gurten Pavillon will treat you to a culinary feast including bratwurst, fine beer and a very special view of Switzerland`s capital!
