Brunnen Fireworks

Every year on August 1st, Switzerland celebrates its national day with festivities around the country. One of these festivities is the annual big fireworks in Brunnen which are shown in this panorama. The location of the fireworks is stunning as it takes place on Lake Lucerne (also known as Vierwaldstättersee) a beautiful lake in central Switzerland.

The location is also historically signficant as it is near a mountain meadow called Rütli, where the legendary oath of Rütlischwur took place which was the start of the independence of Switzerland and goes back to the 14th century.  

The annual fireworks are attended by thousands of people from the shore as well as from boats on the lake. A flotilla of large boats travel from surrounding towns and cities, including Lucerne, to see the fireworks.

Rütli is behind the fireworks. To the left of the fireworks is Fronalpstock, a 2000m high peak which is a popular skiing destination in winter and walking destination in summer. On the other side of the fireworks, towards the North, you can see the pleasant town of Brunnen which offers beautiful views of the lake. On the westside you can see some remaining light from the dusk.
