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.

Kunsthaus Zürich
Here's a short briefing: The Dadaists put their fingers in the open wounds of philistines, setting trends for Zurich's avant-garde in 1916. Trendsetters in art are Tzara, Ball and Arp, who exposed the absurdities of war with their sculptures and paintings and revolted against the bourgeoisie.   If you are curious we recommend you visit the Kunsthaus Zürich. Behind its neo-classicist façade it hides anything the post-modern artist's heart desires. But apart from Matisse, Mondrian and Chagall you can also descend into the depths of the psyche and discover the expressionists, surrealists and all the others with Munch, Picasso, or Dali. TheKunsthaus also holds a large collection of graphic art from Dürer to Füssli in store.   You'll also find photo collections by Gursky and Wall and Old Masters from Holland, Italy or the late Gothic period. All in all one can say: If you don't find something you like here, you don't like art at all.

Shopping

Roma
The Boutique Roma has style, i.e. Belgian and not Italian style. While the name is somewhat misguiding, you may rest assured: What you buy here has a name. And a big one at that. You'll find Dries van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester here. And they are not alone because Roma also hosts international designers together with the Belgian ones, Junya Watanabe, Rick Owens or Haider Ackermann among them.   If you have found the fitting noble outfit you can also leave your old sandals here. The new shoes come from Shoto, Fitzroy and Camper, the bags from Sak and Numero 10. And while SHE lives out her shopping frenzy, HE is also offered the fitting designer wear. Boutique Roma offers Royal Shirt, The Viridi-Anne and Georgio Brato for men. Once you leave the store you've shopped in three countries: Belgian designers on Swiss ground and with Italian names.

Seegarten
Everything's a bit artsy here, a bit casual and easy-going. The Hotel Seegarten adapts to the vicinity of the lake, pouring oil on troubled water with its famous calm before the storm.   The Seefeld district is not a quiet one, after all. Many bars, stores and galleries demand a high degree of shopping discipline, weigh heavy on credit cards and make visitors dizzy with shopping frenzy. We recommend you keep your nerve and quickly check into the Seegarten Hotel because there you will be able to catch your breath. Its Mediterranean flair, its rattan furniture and the terracotta floors make the world appear much more relaxed.   No wonder that the hotel became a pilgrimage shrine for the stressed-out. Among the media and advertising trades the hotel enjoys great popularity. Apart from its nice atmosphere you can also enjoy delicious culinary treats dished up by Restaurant Latino, very leisurely and stress-free, of course. You will seldom find a more uncomplicated hotel than the Seefeld in clockwork Switzerland. Double rooms from 187 Euros per night.
