The nightlife multi-talent knows the best places in Zurich to relax and unwind.
Marco Uhlig is the organizer of the party series, Boyahkasha, manager of the Heaven Club, performs as DJ Zör Gollin, and is co-organizer of the Zurich Pride Festival.

Marco Uhlig plays an active role in Zurich’s nightlife and is a real multi-talent: the manager of the popular gay club, Heaven, in Zurich’s Old Town takes to the stage, among other things, as DJ Zör Gollin and is also co-organizer of the famous Zurich Pride Festival. This annual event campaigns for the rights of the LGBT+ community and enjoys widespread support from the people of Zurich. Marco, who often works at night, knows the best places in Zurich to relax during the day.

Park

Lindenhof

To clear your head, Marco recommends the Lindenhof: “This is the perfect place to switch off, with the view of the Old Town, the Limmat, and the mountains in the distance”.
Shopping

Viadukt

Here, Marco particularly likes the many small stores, with their diverse retail concepts.
Activity

Take a Ride on a Pedalo

“If I can’t find a quiet place by the lake, I take a pedal boat out into the middle of Lake Zurich. A dip in the crystal-clear water is really refreshing.”
Event

Zurich Pride Festival

“This colorful event is very close to my heart, because it fights for the rights of all LGBTs and brings together people from all ages and social groups.”
Movie Theater

Kosmos

Marco loves the mix of blockbusters and independent movies screened here. And quite apart from that, “the seats are very comfortable”, he says.
Romantic Dinner

Restaurant Bürgli

“On the terrace it is very cozy and with the view over Lake Zurich simply perfect for a dinner for two,” Marco relates.
Bar

Barfussbar

“Watching the sunset barefoot”, enthuses Marco. And it’s true: at this bar – by day an outdoor bathing facility for women – shoes are not allowed.
Hotel

25hours Hotel Langstrasse

Now and again, Marco treats himself to a night at the 25hours Langstrasse. And because the staff are so friendly and the decor so spectacular, he would rather not check out at all.
