Zurich

Zurich
Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland. It is located in the German-speaking North of the country, on the banks of lake Zurich. Kloten airport is the major hub for the entire country, and serves numerous locations domestically, within Europe, and overseas. You can fly to Zurich with Austrian Airlines from neighbouring country Austria. Zurich is well known for its banking industry. Hundreds of financial institutions are either based in the city, or operate subsidiaries and branches there. This makes the city a very affluent place, quite expensive for tourists and visitors, a fact one should be aware of when travelling here. However, Zürich is surrounded by great scenery, lakes, mountains, and has many historic buildings, especially in the city center. Furthermore, it also boasts a surprisingly active nightlife and vibrant culture for its relatively small size.

What to see in Zurich

Cabaret Voltaire
Dada doesn't rest - Dada reproduces itself, says a phrase on the topic. And we add the following: If you say Dada too often, you become a bit gaga. But that's how it should be, probably. As what began at Cabaret Voltaire in 1916, soon became known as a playground of crazy emotions. Thus, Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings and Hans Arp did not only stage their protest against World War I when opening their artists' pub but also invented a new art movement, which can hardly be described in words, therefore being simply called Dada. Dada is a collage from cubism, futurism and Medieval mystics, a wild blend of abstract dance and atonal music, of poetry, painting and the performing arts, i.e. Dada. If you got lost by now just come by. The Cabaret Voltaire is still flying the flags for Dada, delivering magic moments with exactly the right amount of irony palpable in every work of Dada.

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.

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.

Yooji's
Fans of sushi, sake and sashimi will find Zurich a suitable place: Already on four venues the Yooji's chain serves the best rolls in the typically Asian minimalistic style. Seefeld, Josef and Bellevue rather sound like "Sisi and Franz" but, gotcha, you are wrong! Behind the monarchic names hide sushi places. And that these have little in common with pomp and fanfare is generally known. A bit of bamboo, a bit of glass, small servings but lots of lemongrass dominate interior and kitchen of the Japanese restaurant. Those who like it can visit the gift shop at Yooji's Seefeld. There, they get the right kind of utensils for Asian lifestyles. The Josef, however, has fully devoted itself to rice wine. Before, with or after the noodle soup you should give the excellent sake a try. And later you can have a sake cocktail as well. Also at the Bellevue you have a good view of sake but you can also help yourself without bad conscience: There, a nutritionist checks what is served on the plate. So you can afford to sin with respect to the drink.
