Live-Jazz every Thursday



We love events.


We love when the restaurant, the hotel, the building and our whole neighborhood comes alive.


We always come up with something new for you.
At the moment we offer you live music every Thursday evening from 6:30 p.m. – our weekly «Soul Night» with live bands that are always changing.


We have already been the venue for vernissages and world premiere aperitifs and most recently we were a partner company at the Zurich Film Festival.


We have set ourselves the goal of helping to shape the cultural scene in Zurich and supporting it wherever we can. We are working on an event calendar for you for the coming year and look forward to celebrating with you at Max&Otto soon.

What else is going on in Zurich?



Christmas markets in Zurich



The oldest Christmas market in Zurich is located at the "Niederdörfli" - the heart of Zurich. Between the "Central" and the "Grossmünster", numerous stalls invite you to take a stroll through the old town.
Our tip: The "Fondue Alp" is located in front of the "Grossmünster" and invites you to delicious cheese specialties.

It opens on 24.11 and can be visited until 23.12.

__________


The "Zurich Christmas Village", right next to the Bellevue enchants its visitors during the Christmas season. It is located just  30 seconds away from our hotel.

The "Christmas village" opens again from 24.11 and offers around 100 market stalls. The Christmas market is open daily until 23.12.

A little hint: on the whole area you pay cashless - so only with cards.


__________


The main hall of the Zurich main station is transformed from 24.11 into one of the largest covered Christmas markets in Europe.

The highlight; the over 10 meter high Christmas tree, which is decorated with thousands and thousands of sparkling crystals.



Candle Ships



Every year, at 6 p.m. on December 22, many small candle ships float on the Limmat. The boats are made by Zurich schoolchildren. The event is a thank you from Zürich Tourism to the people of Zürich for their hospitality. On the Weinplatz, Zürich Tourism will offer the spectators hot punch and something sweet.

Illuminarium



In the courtyard of the National Museum between 10.11 and 30.12 a magical world appears. It has something for everyone, be it the spectacular lights, the fondue chalet or the bar. The entrance to the front part is free. If you would like to, you can watch one of the two elaborately staged light - shows in the paid part. These last 25 minutes each.

Dolder Ice Rink



Probably the most beautiful ice rink in the city is located high above the city at Dolder Sports. It is one of the largest open artificial ice rinks in Europe. With the "Dolderbähnli" you can get out of the city and get to this beautiful place.The entrance fee for an adult person is CHF 9.- and you can also rent skates on site.
