Klausjagen Küssnacht am Rigi
The Klausjagen in Küssnacht am Rigi is one of the most imposing St.Nicholas customs in Europe. More than 1000 chasers gather on the evening before Saint Nicholas’ Day in the village at Lake Lucerne. At 8.15 pm, a small cannon is fired and the street lights go out all over Küssnacht. The procession with around 200 Iffelen (illuminated ornaments), followed by St.Nicholas and archaic noise from over 1000 chasers is watched every year by up to 20'000 spectators.
