I am sick and have to cancel my trip to Zurich. How can I get Zurich souvenirs anyway?

The micro delivery network pleasebringme.com connects travelers with locals. On their website, choose “I am at home. Please bring me something.” and post your request there. Good luck!

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.
