Rose Festival Weggis

×

Will you be around on the first weekend in July when top-class bands rock for three days and folk music plays in the Kafistube? The spectacular Saturday evening fireworks display over Lake Lucerne is a further highlight. The children can enjoy themselves in the amusement park, in the play bus, on the bouncy castle or at the puppet theatre.

Rose Queen

The star of the Rosenfest is the Rose Queen. She's elected on Saturday. Any lady receiving at least twenty official Rosenfest red roses on Saturday evening is eligible to participate.

Info

Admission badge valid for all three days, CHF 20.00; Sunday only, CHF 5.00. Free admission for children up to and including the age of 12. Please bring ID.

History

Inspired by Montreux's Narcissus Festival, seven young men in the 1920s sought to establish a bijou folk festival in Weggis. No sooner said than done. The roses that bloomed so abundantly in the gardens of the lakeside municipality were destined to become the symbol not only of the festival but of Weggis itself. The Weggis Rosenfest launched in 1926. It also features a spectacular fireworks display.
