Christmas Path Aeschi

Spend a few cozy hours on the Aeschi Christmas Path. We tell you the Christmas story with six lovingly prepared pictures accompanied by text. From 5 p.m., lanterns and lights will show you the way, which will take you about an hour to complete. The Christmas Path is open for you from the end of November to the beginning of January.

Opening times for the Christmas Path: from November 27, 2022 to January 6, 2023
Lighting: daily from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m

Electricity savings: We make our contribution to electricity savings and reduce consumption by 30%. In order to achieve this, the lighting times are strictly adhered to, most of our lamps are LED (LED consumes less electricity than normal lamps) and the path and picture lighting is reduced.

Please note that due to the electricity savings, some parts of the Wiehnachtswäg may be less lit. Bring your own light if necessary.

Behind the scenes at the Christmas Path/Wiehnachtswäg Aeschi there is always a lot of hard work going on and commitment from numerous people. Many years ago, the Aeschi Parents' Association was able to convince the other Aeschi associations of the idea of having a Christmas Path. It was opened for the first time in Advent 2010. The result is a joint product and a beautiful collaboration between the clubs and private individuals of Aeschi. The Aeschi Christmas Path is now a wonderful community event.
