24 hours Zurich

My perfect day in Zurich would be a summer day. After getting up I would head out for breakfast to Kafi Schnaps or Caredda with friends. We’d have some chitchat about the things going on in our lives while enjoying the early sun with some nice pastries, bircher müsli, and coffee.

After, I would try my luck at one of the flea markets – Bürkliplatz in summer or at the Kanzlei flea market that runs year round – to get some unique accessories for my flat. As the day went on I’d pay a visit to some of my favourite clothes shops at On y va, Making Things (for men), or Kitchener. If I had no luck at the flea market (or if it was winter time), I’d do some furniture shopping at Bogen33 or Walter and find some more accessories at Einzigart.

Since my perfect day would be nice and hot, I’d hang out by the water and cool down in the river at one of the Letten Badis Unterer or Oberer Letten or Werdinsel.

In the evening I’d meet friends for dinner at Salon, Camino, or Les Halles. Afterwards we’d probably head to the Sport Bar for drinks, then for another beer at Kaiser Franz before hitting the clubs Gonzo, Hive, or Zukunft to dance the night away.
