Albani Fest

Winterthur

27.06.14-29.06.14

Considered to be Europe's largest annual city festival, every year towards the end of June, the Albanifest beckons more than

100,000 people to the city centre of Winterthur. The Albanifest is the festival of the associations in Winterthur. Approximately 100 clubs and societies replenish their coffers with their novel festival booths. There are no limits to the culinary delights on offer and, of course, music has to play a part, too; often live bands in the festival booths make for high spirits. However the most attention is given to the ludicrous rides, which catapult the high-spirited into the air and let all others gaze in amazement
