Event details

The traditional Gersau Chlaus Nights take place only every three years. Trychler culture, Iffelen splendor, Advent market and festival hut coziness.
The Gersau ChlausNights are a combination of Chlaus hunting, trychler culture, Iffelen splendor, craft Advent market and Festhütten coziness. It is held only once every three years. In other places it is called Chlausjagen. Here in Gersau we call it Chlausentrychlen. This is an original procession of men waving big cowbells in the same rhythm. This impressive tradition is cultivated here with great seriousness. The procession also includes the elaborate Iffelen - and of course not to forget - Santa Claus! Every three years the Chlausentrycheln is extended to the ChlausNächte. The parade is also attended by foreign trychler groups or children's trychlers. In addition, there is an Advent market in the romantic park with many local exhibitors, Advent singing by the school children, Chlausenbeten (also a Gersau tradition), the Chlausen-Bar, Chlausäkafi and a festival hut where live music is played. Santa Claus will be picked up from the Nauen (cargo ship) on Friday.
