4 Must-do Things in Zurich

A fall getaway to Switzerland's largest city promises pork and apple pie, cheese fondue and a hike above the city to top it all off.

Zurich, Switzerland

Stay

25hours Hotel Zurich Langstrasse

This 170-room funhouse of a hotel serves up non-stop surprises. You’ll be greeted by the lobby’s rotating art installations before discovering your room’s whimsy and practical touches, like colouring books and Freitag bags for use during your stay. When you head out, take one of their Minis, free of charge.


Dine

Baltho Küche & Bar

Situated in the buzzing Marktgasse Hotel, Baltho’s modern dining room, which overlooks the old town, is the setting for border-hopping dishes, from bang bang chicken to mussels in a white wine broth. The Baltho Bar mixes up high-wire cocktails, like the Great Gatsby, with single-malt whisky, elderflower liqueur and smoked salt.


Do

Im Viadukt

Satisfy all of your cravings at this food market and shopping centre located beneath a railway overpass in the industrial-turned-artsy Kreis 5 district. Browse vintage ceramics and Nudie Jeans denim in the shops housed under the stone railway arches, then snack on a pork and apple pie and listen to the trains rumble overhead.


Day Trip

Uetliberg

The 870-metre-high peak is a 20-minute train ride from the centre and it offers views over the city’s roofs. Hike to the top in 60 minutes, or take the Path of the Planets, with signposts about the solar system along the trail. On your way back down, order a well-earned cheese fondue at the Gmüetliberg restaurant.
