Switzerland

Switzerland

If you want to travel somewhere unique, fly with Austrian Airlines to Switzerland and enjoy some Swiss hospitality. Although Switzerland has distinct regions of French, German and Italian customs, it defines and unifies itself by its history of political and cultural neutrality. In avoiding alliances and acting as a intermediary between other nations, it has become home to a large number of creative artists who took refuge here from other countries. There are over 1000 museums located in the country. The Locarno International Film Festival and the Montreax Jazz Festival are also held in Switzerland. Much of the country's identity comes from its Alpine region. The Swiss alps offers glaciers, waterfalls, and unique ecological flora and fauna. Enjoy one of the many historic hotels while hiking and skiing in Switzerland.

Fabric Frontline
André (Andi) Stutz is a true sunshine and king in his field. Together with his sisters Elsa and Maya, he runs the company Fabric Frontline since 1980 and offers an immense range of precious silks. Not only his deer friend Vivienne Westwood but also Chanel, Gucci and Givenchy count to his clients.   Apart from offering fine silk, Stutz and his team also design and produce accessories like neckerchiefs, scarves, foulards and ties. The headquarters with its complete range of fabrics is located in Ankerstrasse 118, whereas the boutique can be reached at Bahnhofstrasse 25, offering fashion made of cashmere and silk.   Pullovers, jackets, blouses and coats made of silk are shining brightly in rainbow colours as if they were competing against each other. The boutique itself, designed by Ugo Rondinone, is richly colourful as well. For those of you who want it most exclusive can buy a custom-tailored silk garment by André Stutz.

Rigiblick
Rigiblick offers ample space for unfolding to its guests. Nobody suffers from claustrophobia here but you are spoilt for choice when it comes to the wine. If you are not an expert you should ask for advice, otherwise you might mix up the St. Laurent 2007 with the Pinot Noir - and that would be a faux pas. But if you still mess up the etiquette rules you need not fear an angry look from your neighbour: The tables are as far away from one another that you won't even hear high-pitched laughter from the other side. At this noble restaurant guests can concentrate on the essential, namely the food. The latter, while expensive, is pan-Asian and creative. Halibut is served with Malaysian vegetables, veal fillet comes with pineapple and duck liver comes even twice: fused with pumpernickel or with limes and rocket. What a feast! Also a feast (to the eyes) are the light-flooded rooms, the summer terrace with a terrific view of Zurich and the distance to your neighbour's table. It is understandable that gourmets feel at home here. And it is understandable that poor guys stay at home.

Rote Fabrik
Everything that's going on here was won hard: The former silk factory was due for dismantling but the avant-garde scene was against it. A 1973 referendum decided that the factory was going to continue as a centre of culture and encounter. But the conservatives were against it, maintaining that rock music was no culture and should not be allowed to be staged at a city centre of culture. Then, nothing happened for many years.   Eventually, the youth movement demanded that there be life in the dead factory. And after innumerable demonstrations they succeeded. Today, the red factory has cult status. Even Nirvana and the Red Hot Chili Peppers had guest performances here.   Diverse programmes are hosted every evening. The factory theatre stages artistic experiments on a regular basis, there is free jazz, and thanks to "Fabrikvideo" fledgling musicians can produce their own videos and use the factory-owned cutting machine.

Seehof
In Zurich the world revolves around banks. And busy bankers best look for a hotel that furthers concentration, such as the Seehof. Here, business people may finally take a rest and keep a level head at the purist hotel. The design is slightly reserved some say. But others delight in the pure lines, the absence of pomp and the plain appearance. A bed, a table, a chair - do you need more than that? Okay, we will need some high-tech, too. And the furniture is best quality, too. The junior suite even boasts its own terrace, and a bath to feel good in with a beautiful bathtub. But still, even the upper floors are manageable as to sizes: 25 square metres feature only what needs to be there. The rest is bells and whistles anyway.   This trend continues into the restaurant, which is often frequented by the local culture scene due to its vicinity to the opera. A titbit of sushi, little sashimi, well prepared by chef de cuisine Keisuke Takatori, who you may watch while he prepares his art. Conclusion: Dining and sleeping is well-portioned at the Seehof.  But there's nothing wrong with it every once in a while. Double rooms from 211 Euros per night.
