The portal for a lively Walchwil
Das Portal für ein lebendiges Walchwil

From Tuesday, 11 June 2024, to Wednesday, 3 July 2024, it's once again time to ‘See, be seen and try things out’ on the village square.

The Freie Bühne is a platform for all amateurs and artists who enjoy performing. Whether music, theatre, dance or something unusual. (Almost) anything is possible.
In good weather, the events take place on the village square.

In bad weather in the parish hall or directly in the Riviera Café. Catering is provided by ‘Fyrabig Metzg’, while Irene and Remo Heinrich liven up the Riviera Café during the open-air stage. The Riviera Café opens 1 hour before the start of each event.

Come along and experience culture in all its diversity in the centre of Walchwil!

Data as of 31.12.2019. There are no more recent data on the foreign resident population in Switzerland. The data from the previous year are published on 1 September of the following year.
The data was collected by the Federal Statistical Office and the Statistical Office of the Canton of Zurich.

The bathing season in Walchwil officially begins on 1 May. The Saturday before, on 27 April, the municipality invited the local population to an aperitif at the lakeside resort.

The small bistro will be run by a new but familiar tenant this season. Jonny Azizi already runs various establishments in the region, including the Plaza in Zug. Managing Director Vjosa Turjan will be the boss at Badi Walchwil.

After the introduction of the new tenants and their staff, those present enjoyed a delicious aperitif in the pretty lakeside pool with its breathtaking view of the snow-covered Rigi.

In terms of the temperatures, the focus in the first few days will certainly be on the Badi-Beiz and probably not yet on swimming.
