Zurich by

Nicolas Müller

The snowboarder knows how to combine nature and city life when he is in Zurich.

For Nicolas Müller, Zurich serves as an interface between work and home.

Whenever professional snowboarder Nicolas Müller returns home from his trips away, he always looks forward to stopping over in Zurich. For him, the City on the Limmat combines urban flair with the beautiful Swiss nature – for many ski areas lie just a few miles outside Zurich. What’s more, after a day of fun in the snow, Zurich offers a huge choice of first-class restaurants and a varied nightlife. For Nicolas – a vegetarian who particularly likes spelt products – the city’s gastronomic diversity is one of its absolute highlights. Here are Nicolas’s tips on how to spend a winter’s day in Zurich:

First of All: Coffee

Bank

I love sitting outside in front of the Bank café and watching the hustle and bustle on Helvetiaplatz over a cup of tea or coffee.
Off to the Piste

Ski Areas Near Zurich

What more could you wish for than a city that can also give you mountains? In Zurich, there is pristine nature just around the corner.
Healthy Fast Food

Roots

I like the crew who work at the vegan restaurant and take-out, Roots. The food is delicious and 100% vegan!
Take to the Ice

Dolder Ice Rink

The Dolder Ice Rink near the luxury hotel, The Dolder Grand, is fantastic. Here, in a beautiful forest setting, you can do your rounds at your leisure.
Enjoy Organic Food

Restaurant Volkshaus

The Volkshaus serves great cuisine comprising organic ingredients, has friendly staff, and is a cool location where you really feel at home.
Sip Cocktails

Cinchona Bar

This bar housed in the 25hours Hotel on Langstrasse is simply fabulous. And Zurich’s nightlife starts right on its doorstep.
Deep into the Night

Club Gonzo

Great people, great music. And after a ‘Mexican’ – you can only get this shot here – you can’t help but get up and dance.
