Be amazed by the mystic and talents of street performers at one of our favorite open-air festivals set along the gorgeous Landiwiese lakefront setting.  

Many performances must be pre-booked, but there’s ton you can see simply by stopping by impromptu. Shows are popping up in every corner! From fire batons to swinging trapezes, you can spend the afternoon ooohing and aaahing at the talents of dancers, actors, magicians and more as 35+ theatre groups participate in the annual Theatre Spektakel.

While it’s franc savvy free to attend, it’s best to bring a whole lot of coins! After each show, the performers will ask for a donation usually via their hat or music box. Plus, it never hurts to sit lakeside with an Aperol Spritz now does it ladies!


Zuri Mom Tip

On Wednesdays & Sundays at 16.00 the world’s a stage for your young ones! In a super-friendly stroller space with loads of grassy areas for toddlers to tot, discover an afternoon of fun kids programs.

We will admit, the line for the merry-go-round can be a bit chaotic, but how often can your mini me ride on a singing, manually pushed giant shoe!
