Carlsberg High Five 2015

(11 April 2015, Verbier, Switzerland)

Verbier is a popular resort famous for its fantastic on and off-piste skiing. Perhaps the most challenging event for the non-professional skiers is the Carlsberg High Five. During this competition they have the opportunity to ski together with their admired skiers and have a great fun during the after-ski party in the evening.
Some of the best skiers in the world are challenged in five different competitions also open for ordinary downhill skiers, snowboarders and telemakers. The five categories are giant slalom, boarder cross, mogul run, fun triathlon and parallel slalom. All of them measure the skills of the participants and push them to the limits of their abilities.
As you might guess, an event sponsored by Carlsberg also provides lots of beer and fun after the skiing, during the award ceremony and the after-ski party. Browse our hotels in Verbier for quality accommodation during Carlsberg High Five 2013. Visit http://www.switzerland-trips.com/Verbier-Valais/Verbier-Hotels-Tourist-Info.html

 

Sechselauten Spring Festival 2015

(13 April 2015, Zurich, Switzerland)

In the middle of April, Zurich hosts the traditional spring festival Sechseläuten which sees the winter off. On this day a special mask from straw called Böögg is ritually burnt as it represents the cold winter days.
At the beginning of the festival before the main day, 2 000 children and members of every guild in traditional costumes parade on the streets. For the members of the guilds there is a special midday meal in their guild houses and afterwards they go to the parade. In the event take part more than 7 000 participants, 500 horses and 28 orchestras, not to mention the thousands of spectators along the streets. Finally the parade arrives on the Sechseläutenwies before the opera house. There at 6 o’clock the abovementioned mask Böögg is set on fire while the sun sets. As the legend says, if the Böögg burns fast, the summer will be fine and warm.
