A mindful lifestyle is in the very DNA of Zurich and the people who live here. The following tips show the city’s sustainable heart and help interested visitors to become part of this mindful lifestyle.
Consciously plan more time for your stay in Zurich. Here are just some good reasons for staying longer
Soak up the City
Experience Zurich’s top quality of living.
On a city break, it is tempting to want to see as much as possible in the shortest amount of time. But there is a better way of doing things: take regular breaks, sit in a park or café, take deep breaths, and observe the world around you. Immerse yourself in the nearby woods, take a dip in the lake, and delight in Zurich’s top quality of living. In Zurich, you can even see the stars at night.
Keep an Open Mind
Safety and tolerance are important fundamental values in Zurich – for locals as well as for guests.
Choose Real Food
Produce that grows and thrives nearby tastes best.
Eat local and seasonal food – you are guaranteed to love it! Nowhere does fish from Lake Zurich taste as good as when it is enjoyed sitting on the lakeshore. The wild garlic for the aromatic pesto was freshly picked in the morning and the cheese for the fondue is sold by local farmers at the weekly market. Feast with a clear conscience in one of Zurich’s many sustainable restaurants.
Stop Working, Start Creating
If you cannot or do not want to completely dispense with work during your stay in Zurich.
If you are working on saving the world, or at least on innovative solutions to create a better world, we do not want to distract you with sightseeing. Instead, we can support you with even more inspiration: in these urban locations, digital nomads and idealists meet the local creative and start-up scene and their visionary ideas.
Zurich hotels attach great importance to the mindful treatment of natural resources and social issues.
The fact is: mobility is harmful for the climate. It is therefore important to make good decisions.
Reducing your own mobility is clearly the best decision for the environment. Plan your trip and opt wherever possible for environmentally friendly means of transport. Offset emissions generated by your flight. Once you arrive in Zurich, traveling smart is easy: awaiting you are a highly efficient public transportation network and attractive bike, jogging, waterfront and walking paths.
Drink, refill, repeat.
In the water city of Zurich, the purest drinking water flows from over 1,000 fountains, as well as in all households. That means that if you have a water bottle (you can find the most beautiful one here) with you, you can fill it up with top-quality water for free wherever you go. That's why drinking “Züri water” is good for us and for the planet.
