48 hours in Zurich
48 hours in Zurich
Grüezi mitenand! Hello everybody! In July, I spend a weekend in Zurich and it was amazing! This was my second time in Zurich and I had been looking forward to this visit for a long time since I met there with my best friend that I hadn’t seen for more than a year. Since I had been to Zurich in December with ESN Geneva, I already know a few places I wanted to show her. And here they are!
Favorite parts of the city
My favorite districts for a nice stroll in the old city of Zurich are Lindenhofand Niederdorf. Lindenhof is great because it offers an amazing view over the old town of Zurich and in Niederdorf you can find an endless variety of shops, restaurants and coffee bars! These two parts are not to be missed on a short stay in town and both are located very close to each other which is perfect for a daily stroll through town. Here are a few suggestions on where to eat in town:
Where to eat
THE place to eat for every vegetarian and everyone who would love to have good vegetarian dishes for lunch! There is a huuuge buffet waiting for you guys, ready to be turned upside down – no seriously, there are warm plates and you can choose whatever (yes, whatever – isn’t that amazing) you want. So grab everything you would like to eat or taste and pay per weight. It is just that simple. There are several Hiltl restaurants in Zurich, but the best one is located in Bahnhofsstraße on a rooftop.
My second time in Zurich and also my second time having dinner at this place! Here you can find local cuisine at very good prices. The menu changes in summer and in winter. If you want to experience good local cuisine in a very traditional setting – that’s the place to be! In winter, I was just looking for a place to warm myself up when I found this restaurant. It was full when I was there the first time and also on my second visit, so it has to be good!
Restaurant Boucherie AuGust
Since we were staying at the Hotel Widder we wanted to try out the house’s restaurant one evening – and we were blown away! The staff was super friendly and the food – we just couldn’t stop eating. Both of us had an own entree and then, because we wanted to try a main dish too, we shared the Pastetli. Even though we were already so full from our entrees, we managed to finish the Pastetli and then ordered one dessert too. Our evening ended with two glasses of Schnaps and good conversations with the staff. Btw, I think I will upload a different post about this place with all the photos I took that evening in Tried & Tested.
