New Year's Eve in Switzerland

New Year’s Eve is one of the largest global celebrations because it marks the last day of the year in the Gregorian calendar, December 31, before the New Year. Count down to the New Year no matter where you are in the world.

Is New Year's Eve a Public Holiday?

Although New Year's Eve is not a public holiday, businesses and schools may be closed because it falls on the same date as Restoration Day in 2019, which is a public holiday in Geneva.

Many people celebrate New Year's Eve to bid farewell to the year that ends and to welcome the New Year.
