For the third year in a row, parliament square will boom and sparkle for 25 minutes twice daily – at 7pm and 8.30pm – until December 1 (except for November 24-25).

More than 500,000 people were wowed by last year’s free display. This year, for the first time, the show takes the form of a story based on Swiss myths.
