Remember, remember the 5th of November. No, not only the 5th! November is a month full of learning, exploring, and experiencing. Whether you’re looking to learn about different cultures, languages, literature, or exploring different museums and festivals, November has something for everyone. We made a list of festivals in Zurich and around that are taking place in November.

Zurich to eat

Blinde Kuh

Actually not only in November… You don’t need to close your eyes in order to focus on what you hear, taste and feel: it’s completely dark, here! You will be guided by voices and… your instincts in an unforgettable sensorial experience.

The 5: Pop up Restaurant

En guete! 5 chefs, 5 course-menu – for an unforgettable culinary experience.

Slowly getting ready for Christhmas.

Zurich for adventurers and dreamers

Discover Winterthur

Kurzfilmtage Winterthur

The Swiss short film festival is a great opportunity to train and improve your language skills (German, but not only, since the festival gathers international directors and artists), while gaining insight and reflecting on different aspects and problems of our society and enjoy the best of contemporary filmmaking.
