The annual Sechseläuten takes place on 24 April. As the highlight, a giant snow man gets burned which marks the end of winter. The faster it explodes, the better the summer. Place your bet and win tickets to Zurich!

Take part in our competition by 17:00 on 24 April 2017 (UK time) to be in the chance of winning two return tickets to Zurich from London Heathrow, London City, Birmingham or Manchester.

The Böögg as Weather Forecaster
Nowadays, it is tradition to ask the Böögg to forecast the weather for the coming summer. During the Sechseläuten ceremony, the pyre with the Böögg on top is set alight at 6.00pm on the dot. It is said that the faster the fire reaches the snowman figure and his head – which is packed with firecrackers – explodes, the finer the summer will be. Incidentally, the Böögg was very accurate in his prediction for the extremely hot summer of 2003 – his head exploded after a record-breaking 5 minutes, 42 seconds.

In 2012 it took 12 minutes and 07 seconds, and in this year there was some confusion if both firecrackers in the neck of the Böögg had exploded. It was determined that 12 min 07 secs was the mark.
In 2014 the head exploded quite quickly (7 Minutes and 23 seconds) but it ended up being a poor summer.
In 2015 the head exploded quite quickly and it ended up being a very good summer.
In 2016 the head exploded after 43 minutes and 34 seconds, setting a new record.
