Romantic ideas for anniversary in Zurich

My dear friends,

The next Monday we will celebrate our wedding anniversary. For the evening we have already booked a table in the restaurant.
Now the question is what else can we do? Unfortunately it is a working day for my husband and the earliest he can get off is 3 p.m., the table is reserved for 6 p.m., so we have 3 hours for smth, but what. Please advice except SPA. Thanks in advance for the ideas.

My husband took me to an orchestra that played rock music on our first anniv. It was fun, and then he cried.

Re: Romantic ideas for anniversary in Zurich

Go to a museum in Zürich, wander round one of the Christmas markets, have a gluewein.
Go to the top of the Uetliberg and admire the view.
Ice skating at the Dolder ice rink, or another ice rink.

Re: Romantic ideas for anniversary in Zurich

Going to a museum for your anniversary is not romantic but going on top of Uetliberg is a very nice idea.

The thing is that we can't go anywhere in the evening, cuz of our little son, he will be with nanny till 7 p.m., unfortunately she can't take him longer because she has her own 4 kids

Ice skating is not a bad idea.
As for X-mas markets we have already seen 3 of them, it is all the same, and it is enough)))Uetliberg is not that significant for me, nothing special, unfortunately.

Re: Romantic ideas for anniversary in Zurich

jules verne is nice, too. but its all the same: drink/eat with a view and its still at risk to see grey zurich and no sun, mountains. table is set, you have a limited timeframe and you have been to a couple of places already.
hard to say whats there for you two for a romantic tete-a-tete... id say the ice rink is best. or you could do a boat trip, maybe there is some boat that has a romantic offer... quiet table with a cüpli or something...

Thank you. Totally agree with you.
I had a couple ideas, like rent a Ferrari, but they run only till October. Horse riding, but I haven't found a nice stall for this. For SPA 3 hrs is too short=)I think this time it will be just a nice dinner...

Depends a bit on the weather. A visit to a museum like the Landesmuseum or the Rietberg Museum might be the secure bet. There in Zch-HB is a nice Christmas-market. From the Rietberg Museum you might walk down to the lake and pay a Visit to the Sukkulenten-Sammlung with its tropical and desert plants (palms, cactuses, etc.) The Sukkulenten-Sammlung is right beside the Schwimmbad-Mythenquai, which in winter is open to people who want to walk a bit and enjoy the lakeside.
