Every two years, Brunnen plays host to the world-renowned Spettacolo street art festival. Experience up close the colourful goings-on in the village, along the lakeside promenade and at Auslandschweizerplatz.
Street artists present their exceptional talent against the stunning backdrop of Lake Lucerne. This year, Brunnen will once again play host to over 50 local, national and international big names. The programme is richly varied, with performances by jugglers, trapeze artists, fire-breathing acrobats, rope-dancing soothsayers, top-class musicians and comedians, and countless other attractions.
Organised by the Kultur Brunnen association, this event is held every two years and offers entertainment at seven open-air stages, a number of food stands and, of course, bags of fun for young and old. Over 190 performances take place across the three-day festival. Spettacolo is the only street art festival in Central Switzerland.
Mid-August every two years (2020/2022, etc.):
Friday: 6 pm–11:30 pm
Saturday: 12 pm–11:30 pm
Sunday: 12 pm–6 pm
No charge, you can visit Spettacolo for free. Street artists depend on the generosity of the public as their main source of income.
