Winterthur's festivals
Home > Tourist Guide > Table of contents > Zurich > Winthertur > Festivals

The best and most popular of the town’s annual events is the Albanifäscht, a weekend of live rock music and jazz held in late June. The Kyburgiade is a week-long series of chamber music concerts held in early August in the romantic setting of Kyburg castle. The Musikfestwochen, in late August and early September, see Winterthur’s Old Town taken over for live music of all kinds, in the street and bars. If you’re around in May, ask at the tourist office about the Eschenberg-Schwinget, a folksy festival of traditional wrestling held in a nearby meadow, and Jodlersonntag, Yodelling Sunday. Also sometime in May, Whitsun is celebrated in Winterthur in an unusual fashion as Afro-Pfingsten, a kind of mini-carnival of African music and food.
