The part of the courtyard that is open to the public at all times is the epicenter of culinary delight. Before, during and after the show we invite you to hang out here to warm up, enjoy very special food and drinks, meet with friends or just dive further into the world of illumination with wintry beats.
Inside the Illuminarium, a large indoor space offers a lot of space for dark winter nights, a cocktail bar with illuminated drinks and large choice of seasonal food offers and food stalls – with a lot of imagination, lights, projections, and fire – a real feast for all senses. A translucent Fondue Palace situated in the inner courtyard of the Swiss National Museum completes the charming scenery.
Access to the courtyard, in the front part of the light festival, is free. Tickets for the light show can be booked online here or purchased on site. The highlight of the approximately half-hour visit to the new courtyard is the 360-degree show: Yuki and her terribly spectacular friends play music and take the visitors into a faraway dimension. An intergalactic Christmas for the whole family.
