If you want to escape the summer heat in the city, you will find several ravines around Zurich, with babbling streams, shady trees, and plenty of peace and quiet. One of the most popular ravine paths is the Elefantenbachweg, which starts at the Burgwies tram stop.
- The Masoala Hall has tropical temperatures all year round, no matter what the weather is like outside. The Mora-Mora Bar is an absolute insider tip, because it is a bit hard to find and is only open on Sunday afternoons!
- If you do not directly need tropical temperatures, Zurich’s museums are a good place to go. From art to history, technology, culture, design, and toys: in Zurich, the knowledge-thirsty will find all kinds of fascinating exhibitions.
For after the exhibition, the café at the Museum Rietberg often serves culinary delicacies inspired by the current exhibitions. And during the summer, there are deliciously filled picnic baskets for visitors to take into the park under the trees.
Admittedly, you are not alone here and it is not quiet either. But: the wonderful and free Stadtsommer concerts always take place at unique locations and are therefore an absolute must for everyone who visits Zurich in summer.
