Christmas lights on first day & Light show at Illuminarium

First day and first time to see Christmas lights on at Bahnhofstrasse, Zürich Switzerland

As I went to Christmas markets in Zurich many times,

but I’ve never have any chance to join the grand opening like this year.


At first I didn’t expected with many people at all because as I know Switzerland is unique and for lights on just a usual thing that the people used to. But I was wrong.

A lot of people are waiting to see the lights as same as me. It was so surprised, and I felt joyful.


I’ve read before coming to this event. Lights namely LUCY and It decorated at shopping street for 12,000 LED lights.

The Bahnhofstrasse is block up for people can walking through and feel free to standing under lights which mean being close to see how beautiful there are.


I was the one that walking from Zurich main station and being the one of them who were waiting for this special moment. Before lights on you can hear the bell a few seconds and then lights on.

Everyone was cheering and applause. I could feel how happiness was. I felt so bless and speechless ’cause lights are very beautiful. I was my precious moment and I was glad to be there.


After that I walked back to Zurich main station

as I curious to see the indoor Christmas market and more lights there.


But just only the light only this on was on not at indoor Christmas market yet.

Yea, a bit sad but it was ok while I realize to get some mulled wine at another Christmas market lol

So I walked back to Bahnhofstrasse and heading to Werdmühleplatz

as well known as The Singing Christmas Tree.


They were singing and the environment sooooooo lovely. Everyone was singing and dancing together. Yes I was dancing a little too.

Happiness is all around you in this time.

I was happier when I got good mulled wine here in this Christmas market. The mulled wine shop is next to singing Christmas tree. At the corner on your right hand.


Show was done. Another my destination was Illuminarium at Landesmuseum.

Just cross the road from Zurich main station.


Illuminarium is the place for illusion, animation and light show.

This place is wonderland, full fill by music and also culinary at inner courtyard




step inside they have a transparent bar. Very cool with decoration and places for 300 people to be there. But you can stay outside with fire, so your body keep warm no worries at all.


I came here because It looks like magical place and very good to take photos. Moreover, I came for light show. It was my first time to watch the show like this.

I am into the animation that’s why I am so easy to smile all the when I watched the show.


I walked inside before the show begins I choose the seat near the entry that was the best seat for watching.


For who get inside early like me you also can playing game with the monster on the wall screen as they have four different stages. Show was continuing 25 minutes.

Not boring at all cause the effect is super cool

I recommend for you all to spending time and enjoy the show


Where to go next …. Stay tune!

much love xoxo
