A bit of lusty singing at St Andrews, breakfast at the Odeon, a walk to the Zurihorn and back, window shopping in the Niederdorf, dinner at the Tandoori BBQ, quiz at the Shamrock, bed time!

Re: perfect sunday in zurich?

I usually spend it with a extra nice long walk with the dog and the husband, alternating between various trails in Zurich. Gives us (well yes, the dog too) a great opportunity to really talk, rather than the mindless chatter we have on week days when everyone's tired from their day.

Then an extra nice long brunch somewhere in Zürich. Back home to bed and a nice long nap.

Notice that everything is extra long. I love that - just because its Sunday, and you can. I also realise that its not very imaginative or exciting. But Sundays are what you make of them.

I do love a nice walk with a pert little bit of fluff on a Sunday afternoon, so I might well take you up on that offer...

Re: perfect sunday in zurich?

a comfortable (no alarm clock) wake up, a nice healthy breakfast, a walk to somewhere nice, and then a late lunch in zurich city, after that go to a chilled out bar and relax.


also spend the day talking and giving each other time, thats the main thing, what u do whilst talking is a bonus.

Re: perfect sunday in zurich?

As long as it involves a good old fashioned English Roast then I'm happy. Managed to pick up parsnips and bisto in Coop yesterday so fingers crossed for a good one today.

If it doesnt work out, can anyone recommend a good place for a Sunday roast ??

I'm doing roast beef and yorkshire puds today with roasted parsnips, other veg and home made gravy. Doing a jam roly poly and custard for pudding. So glad I stocked up on my parsnips, atora suet and custard powder while back in UK.

Re: perfect sunday in zurich?

If it is a sunny day, take the 14 tram towards Trimilin (not Seebach)
Get off a Trimilin and start walking up the hill path to the "Top of Zurich"
It is about an hour and 1/2 hike up and at the top... there is a tower you can climb for an even more amazing view... and there is a wonderful restaurant that has out door BBQs. Hot apple strudel, schnitzel and Beer. If you are too relaxed to walk back down, take the orange train at UETILBERG Station ( a train station you will see on your way near the top of the mountain) and it will take you back down the mountain in minutes.

In the evening sometimes they have fireworks which you can see from the last stop on train 14.

Makes for a wonderful Sunday
