Where to celebrate National Day in Switzerland?

Hi,

I will be travelling in Switzerland during the eve before and on National Day (31st July/1st Aug).

Can anyone suggest where they think will be the best place to stay and whether hotels are normally fully booked during this time..,

Many thanks,

Tim

It's not a particularly busy day (in the context of summer) in that there is no business travel, and Swiss tend to spend it at home with friends and family.

Most of the 'celebrations' in a town/village run from the afternoon into the evening of the 1st, typically culminating in fireworks.

we have fabulous fireworks here in Martigny. They are shot off from our 12th century castle, la Bâtiaz and the display lasts from 2215 for roughly 20-30 mins. Best place to view them from is the park near the covered bridge.
