I am a very healthy person and don’t want to do without organic food during my holiday in Zurich. Where can I shop?

There are several Müller Reformhaus around town, they offer a wide range of quality organic food and friendly advice.

At Stauffacher and at ShopVille in the Central Railway Station you’ll find the Egli Reformhaus which makes the organic food lovers heart beat faster.

The organic shop L’ULTIMO BACIO in Wipkingen or the Markthalle at Viadukt are definitely worth a visit too.


I need a refreshment – part II

Ahhh.. you´re not a water person.. more a beer person? I see. For a cold beer on a warm summer night, Xenix is a good place. Sit in the shade of the tree, watch the hipsters play petanque and enjoy your typical Zurich summer evening.

If you get hungry: Read post from June 24 and explore Zurichs great garden restaurants.


I want to eat as much chocolate as possible, while I’m in Switzerland.

Well, that’s easy. Switzerland is the country of chocolate. Just enter any grocery store and eat yourself through the range. If you’re looking for something special, visit one of the many confectioneries Sprüngli in town. The traditional confectionery is known for their pastry and has excellent truffles too.

Unfortunately, due to hygienic reasons, it is difficult to visit chocolate factories. Some factories offer tours, though. For more information check here.


How nice and warm it is outside! I would like to enjoy my dinner in a garden restaurant – where can I go?

You are right, it finally got quite warm – time to stay outside as much as possible.

There are different places we like a lot: at restaurant Italia you get served excellent italian food under big chestnut trees, Gartenhof has a lovely range of dishes and you sit in a cosy little garden, Palme de Beirut takes you east to enjoy libanese delights in a perfect green oasis.
The huge garden of Reithalle invites you to eat fresh european cuisine and at Bayrischer Hof Biergarten there will be served typical bavarian food and beer, of course.

Make sure to book ahead or be there early – every Zurich person wants to sit outside on the few warm summer nights we get over here!


Hello there, music lovers!

A few weeks after Stolze Openair in Oberstrass, Wipkingen is THE place to be: Openair Wipkingen is taking place this Saturday!
At the lovely riverside of the Limmat, in the Wipkingerpark, meet dancers, night owls, families and hipsters to listen to great music from home and abroad, such as Zigitros, Tawara Street or Abby. The atmosphere is relaxed and you can drink, eat, listen, dance or even swim and all that for free. Have fun!
