The Oasis on the Mountain
This summer, the "musegarden" at the Uto Kulm on the Uetliberg gives rise to a real vacation feeling: here joie de vivre abounds, with refreshing drinks, musical performances, street food, and beautiful sunsets.
Escape the Heat
Those who want to escape the summer heat in the city can cool down in the refreshing breeze at lofty heights. Standing 41 meters (135 ft) tall, the Hardwald lookout tower offers an impressive view into the far distance. The tower was built exclusively from locally sourced timber and with ist striking shape is a new attraction in the Glattal, not far from Zurich Airport.
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.
- 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.
