Switzerland’s biggest light extravaganza will celebrate its premiere on the Gurten

With the Winter Wonderland, Stargarage AG is bringing a spectacular light sculpture experience to Switzerland.

Every evening from the beginning of November to the end of January, the fairy tale extravaganza whisks visitors off to a fantastic world of light. The Winter Wonderland is home to 120 life-size animals and hundreds of other light objects. Consisting of more than 500,000 LED lights, they have all been created by hand by stage designers over a period of five months. Visitors will be spellbound as they follow the one-kilometer circuit amidst the luminous mythical creatures and colorful installations in the wintry nighttime landscape. The Winter Wonderland has been specially developed by Stargarage AG and is the biggest event of its kind in Switzerland. This year, it will be assembled in two locations, one on the Gurten and the other in Lucerne.

The Winter Wonderland on the Gurten – Park im Grünen will be installed beside the top station of the Gurten funicular. Tickets can be purchased in advance from Ticketcorner. Admission is timed, so it is essential to choose a time frame before making a reservation.
A food stand will be on hand to keep body and soul together, serving a range of treats for all appetites big and small. And, of course, the stands will be happy to welcome anyone keen to enjoy a mulled wine or hot chocolate. Furthermore, Gurtners restaurant is just next door.
