Simply enjoy Zurich: stroll through Kreis 3 and 4, visit the fleamarket at Kanzlei, drink a coffee in the sun at Idaplatz. Join the store-opening of In Love Again or do some shopping at the Viaduktbögen or Frau Gerolds Garten at Kreis 5.
Why don’t you get tickets for Zirkus Knie and enjoy their fulminant show. Or join one of the Pentecoast-concerts at St.Peter und Paul or at Tonhalle. What about a stroll through Mercantino Rimini on Monday evening?
If you are into Africa and worldmusic, travel to Winterthur, where the Afro-Pfingsten festival has to offer a lot: great concerts, markets in the city center, delicious African food, interesting workshops, a Brunch on Sunday morning and much more.
If you rather want wo enjoy the nature, do a day or weekend trip: Schweiz Tourismus recommends trips across Switzerland.
The German lifestyle magazine COUCH connects home, living and fashion and is one of our favourite readings. But it’s not just the magazine itself which is worth spending some time with: their website waits with lots of tips and things to love. Now, guess what? They list us as “Blog-Tipp der Woche”!
Thank you COUCH Magazine! We are looking forward to the questions of all COUCH readers travelling to Zurich. So if you want to know where to shop, to sleep, to party… ask us!
You wanted to know more about the most important Zurich artists?
We’ve already written something about Fischli/Weiss. Another artist who has to be mentioned is Pipilotti Rist, which is not originally from Zurich, but lives here.

She is a world-famous conceptual and visual artist who works with film, video and projections. Her life is as colorful and eclectic as her artistic creation: her work was first featured in the Venice Biennale, she has had numerous gallery and museum exhibitions like at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, has won many prizes and one of her best-known productions is Pepperminta, a long feature movie.
Some interesting facts about her family: her brother owns the best club in Zurich: Helsinki Klub. Her son is called Himalaya. What an international family!
Exactly one year ago the first post of myfriendfromzurich went online – this is a reason to say YEAHHH, don’t you think?!
In this year, we discovered new sides of our favorite city, learned more about blogging and met interesting people on- and offline. Our blog wouldn’t be possible without your questions and inputs – thank you for following us!
We wish you a lovely Easter Monday and hope you’ll stay tuned! We’re ready to answer more and more questions and we hope you’ll love Zurich just as much as we do.
