Zurich

It took us quite a bit to get used to Zurich. Like in every city it takes time to meet likeminded people and to know good places like bars, restaurants, cinemas and so on.

Zurich offers a lot of option for everyone and within half an hour you are in nature. In Summer there are a lot of places for relaxing and BBQs like Chinawiese, Wipkingerplatz or Platzspitz. Take a cruise on the beautiful Lake Zurich and explore the outskirts.

Not far away there are three smaller lakes; Katzensee, Ustersee and Pfäffikersee, which are worth to explore as well. One of my favorite places is Jucker Farm. On a sunny weekend it is a good place for relaxing with local food and paramount view over Pfäffikersee.

In Winter you are very close to good ski resorts like Davos, Arosa, Laax or Lenzerheide. If you are looking for a weekend away with some spa we highly recommend Hotel Guarda Val above Lenzerheide. The hotel combines the fascination of deep-rooted Graubunden alp tradition with a contemporary concept of Alpine design and lifestyle.
