Stay in Switzerland
Hotel Widder
Different styles behind each door: The Hotel Widder is the Omelette Surprise among the design hotels. And so you are spoilt for choice: Baroque wall painting or loft with metal balcony? In the mood for heavy wooden beams or Andy Warhol?   You'll find everything at the Hotel Widder: While the nine Medieval town houses feature different styles each, they have one thing in common: individualism. Minimal meets maximal here: You are offered heavy curtains, Biedermeier furniture and playful styles just as much as armatures sparkling with chromate, masculine leather sofas and pure lines. The restaurants feature a similar mix: The breakfast pavilion below a glass roof is so bright that you can see the yolk shimmering through your egg. While the Widder Restaurant is darker it is equally excellent (15 Gault Millau points). The Widder Bar features jazz in the evening. And with Hank Jones and Phil Woods you can easily round off the day over a single malt whisky. Double room from 550 Euros per night.

Lindenhof
In the beginning there was a moraine hill: There, the Romans built a customs post that should become Zurich later on. Today, the moraine hill is called Lindenhof - and it is one of the most romantic spots in town. Loving couples meet here, and if you are not kissing for the moment, you might want to take a picture. The view of Limmatquai observatory and Grossmünster is unique. The many chess players around here are less interested in the view than in the essential thing: checkmate. And those who feel thirsty after having climbed up here can refresh themselves at the Lindenhof fountain constructed in commemoration of an incredible story: In 1291 an Austrian Duke had lured the Swiss Army to another spot believing he could conquer the city without resistance now. But at the Lindenhof another army was already waiting for him - and he left frustrated. What he didn't know was that women were hiding in the armour, who led the Swiss to victory. And the Lindenhof fountain still stands here in memory of this event, stimulating kisses and photographs with its ripple.

Acqua
If you want to get closer to the water you have to be in the water. The outdoor lounge of Acqua promises the probably best view of sailing boats, mountains and Lake Zurich's sparkling blue. Such a panorama does only harmonise with the noblest interior, of course. The terrace is white and made of wood, suiting a fish meal after a long walk along the promenade. But the restaurant is luxurious inside as well: large windows, a lot of mother-of-pearl and space for a conservative clientele concluding perfect deals over a perfect dinner.   The menu is as fresh as morning dew, combining seasonal and regional specialties. Fish and meat are grilled, the pizza comes from the wood stove and the guests come from the general assembly. And that's how the prices are defined. Acqua is not cheap but it is good. And you can get great brunches here. On Sundays they serve Mediterranean "Brunch al Lago" from 10.00 to 14.00.

Shopping in Switzerland

Shopping in Switzerland
Orell Füssli
It's so typical: When you finally have time to read a book on your vacation, it's a boring book you've taken along. Either you've bought it somewhere shortly before your departure or you wanted to brag with it because it looked so good. Here comes our tip: The Orell Füssli Bookstore is centrally located and sells books that look good.   Also the inside looks good. The specialist for design, photography and architecture has anything that makes the hearts of art fans leap, from Andreas Gursky to Adolf Loos or to essays on genuine British cottages. And if you are in no hurry you enjoy coffee over Helmut Newton and talk shop with your neighbour from the other table. But if you are no friend of coffee-table books you will also find literature at Orell Füssli, along with books on Switzerland and a selection of French books at that.
