I only know about Zurich that it’s famous for its banks – that sounds boring to me. Why should I still come?

No, no and no! Zurich is way more than UBS and Credit Suisse, don’t you worry! Once you have strolled around the lively quarter of Kreis 4, have had your first afternoon beer at Xenix and have danced at one of the many great clubs and concert places, you’ll know that.

Oh, and don’t forget the lake. Who needs to go on a holiday when you can jump into the lake in the middle of the city.

My mom is worried about me travelling alone. Where in Zurich should I watch my step?

Dear mom, don’t you worry. Your kid is very clever, otherwise he would not have heard about us.

Seriously though, Zurich is a very safe city. But as in everywhere in the world, it’s always wise to watch your belongings and trust your gut.


Event Tip: Restaurant Day

May 19 is Restaurant Day, which means everybody can open up a restaurant for one day. You as a guest can explore various homemade dishes in a personal atmosphere.

Restaurant Day, or as the Finns call it, „Ravintolapäivä“, started a year ago in Helsinki, and since then it expanded to twelve countries all over the world. And finally Restaurant Day is also happening in Zurich. myfriendfromzurich will be at Rollen@ Johns’ Place and enjoy Vietnamese summer rolls. Cu there?!
