I am looking for a hammock or hammock chair...does anyone know of any outdoor/garden furniture shops in, or south of, Zurich?

Re: Where Can I Buy a Hammock in Zurich?

Hammocks? My goodness, what an idea. Why didn't I think of that
Hammocks!

ukglach there's four places. There's the Hammock Hut, that's on third.
There's Hammocks-R-Us, that's on third too. You got Put-Your-Butt-There, that's on third. Swing Low, Sweet Chariot... Matter of fact, they're all in the same complex; it's the hammock complex on third, the hammock district.

You can find them at the end of the third aisle next to the carousel at Rogers & Hammockstein.

Transa on Josefstrasse has a nice variety (they're in the basement with the tents and backpacks), also a hammockstand.

Page 236-237 in the Transa Handbuch (or click on Hängematten in Inhaltsverzeichnis)
http://epaper.konradin-relations.de/...001/index.html

Or click on E-Shop and type in "hängematte" in Suche.
http://www.transashop.ch/

Getting there:
http://www.viamichelin.ch/viamicheli...0&y=0&ie=UTF-8
Trams 4 and 13, stop "Museum für Gestaltung", walk in the direction of the railway tracks/HB, i.e. keep the Limmat in your back.

Re: Where Can I Buy a Hammock in Zurich?

Well, Teak and Garten in Männedorf had some gorgeous hammocks, the kind set up on a teak arc. Lovely - and very comfortable. Unfortunately, you'll likely need to sell a kidney to pay for it.

(I love their stuff - but the prices! )

On the other end of the scale, Hornbach had hammocks at the beginning of the summer - I would think they still do, or could order one for you. Not teak - but quite affordable - and quite nice looking.

Also I seem to remember hammocks at ERA in Jona - a bit out of the way for you perhaps - priced somewhere in between those two.
