I’ve always been in love with Switzerland, especially Zurich. The city is full of nice buildings and charming streets. You always find new spots and cozy corners. My friends Laura & Nora have never been to Zurich before. Since my last visit it’s been three years - so we were looking forward to find nice local shops such as chocolatiers, coffee shops and food markets. We visited so many nice places!
The first thing we did on the first day was taking a walk and enjoying the view over the city. What I love the most about Zurich is that you can see the water from almost everywhere. In summer all people are sitting at the riverside and jump into the water anytime they want.
It’s great to walk along the lake Zurich and enjoy ice cream at Gelati am See. Such a cute little ice cream truck. The whole city was covered with nice smells, it really felt like spring and although I already knew the city it was totally different to me. I love to explore a place multiple times, you are always discovering new spots. As I already mentioned what I really love are the streets of Zurich. It gives you a warm feeling when you see small streets and their own little local shops everywhere. Such as a cute little organic store with all fresh vegetables. We bought everything for our picnic there. I am also a huge coffee lover, so we tried a few coffee shops like Juicery 21 not only to drink coffee but juices and smoothies as well. It’s nice to have many different options. The taste of Swiss chocolates is unique! We went to two really sweet chocolate makers called Chocolat Dieter Meier & Max Chocolatier and it tasted so good.
We decided to have our picnic at Lindenhof, it’s a good place to sit and enjoy the great view over the city. If you are interested in knowing more about Food Zurich and their program - there is going to be a nice food festival all over the city starting on the 24th of May. You can find more info on their website or of Visit Zurich’s.
