17th Swiss Hiking Night

For nighthawks and other birds of passage

The 17th Swiss Hiking Night will take place from 1 to 2 July 2023 and lets you experience Switzerland as a hiking country in a completely different light – namely by moonlight!

From various youth hostels, you can start a guided hike under the starry sky at night and embark on a unique journey– for young and old alike.
