How to spend top weekend in Zurich - ideas on extraordinary attractions and sites

Felsenegg Mountain Zurich is rich in unique landmarks, shops, and relaxation areas that are not mentioned in ordinary tour guides. Several years ago, a very unusual attraction opened in Zurich - Real Fiction Cinema. It is open near the entrance to the underground walkway near the Swiss National Museum. This funny cinema is absolutely free to visit. The small hall can seat up to 50 people. Instead of movies, Real Fiction Cinema offers visitors to look at unusual passersby. The screen of the cinema is transparent only from the inside. Outside, it looks like a black display of an unknown purpose. It’s amusing to sit several minutes in the comfortable hall and watch how passersby look at the display with curiosity.
The prestigious The Dolder Grand has already become a true landmark of Zurich. It’s one of the most unusual hotels in the city. The hotel is famous not only because of its high … Open
Are you a fan of unusual dining places? If so, don’t forget to visit Hiltl - the oldest vegetarian restaurant in the world. Open in 1898, the restaurant has never been closed. If you’re a vegetarian, you will want to stay there forever. Even if you like meat, Hiltl is worth visiting as the menu is so diversified and delicious that you won’t even think about the absence of meat on your plate. Not only the menu but also design is a drawing point for many guests. Hiltl has a special interactive wall that displays messages from the official forum and several glass panels where everyone is welcome to leave an autograph.
If you want to spend some time away from popular tourist spots, consider visiting Rimini-Bar . This charming bar belongs to the so-called «Badi-Bar» category – bars with a swimming pool that are very popular in Zurich. Rimini-Bar is hidden in a charming inner yard of a large building. It’s one of the most popular entertainment places among local youth. The bar is always crowded and loud in the evening, but foreign tourists are not frequent guests there.

Wellenberg Swiss Quality is one of the most stylish and modern hotels in Zurich. Its design is a unique combination of exclusive designer elements, premium wooden décor, and wonderful … Open
If you happen to visit Zurich in the period from May to October, don’t miss an opportunity to visit Flea market. It works on Saturdays only, but a walk there can easily replace a visit to a museum. It’s possible to find and buy virtually everything on the flea market – from old tableware and furniture to unique artworks and incredibly beautiful antique toys.
Zurichhorn Park remains one of the most frequently visited tourist destinations in Zurich. However, not all travelers are aware of a wonderful playground for children that opened several years ago in the park. Not only children but also adults keen of landscape design will find it very exciting to visit that place. The colorful playground with fountains is one of the most interesting parts of the park. It’s virtually impossible to walk near the fountains and stay dry.
Zurich is famous for its elite hotels, and Zurich Marriott Hotel has always been one of the most prestigious and expensive. The price of staying in one of the upscale rooms costs no less … Open
In case you’re a fan of industrial art, don’t forget to visit MFO Park . Open in the building of an old factory, this park is a creative mix of metal and wooden constructions, plants, and landscape installations of incredible shapes and sizes. The creative building is often used as a venue for various open-air concerts, theater performances, and exhibitions. However, MFO Park is incredibly interesting to visit when there are no events.
Zurich Are you thinking of souvenirs from Zurich for friends and family? While walking on the central street, don’t forget to find Alfred Bert. This unique postcard shop doesn’t offer ordinary postcards with landscapes that are easy to bend and to lose. It’s impossible to lose a magnificent half-meter large postcard with a mesmerizing panorama of Zurich, same as it’s impossible to leave Alfred Bert without making a purchase – the prices are more than affordable.
