Things to do on a sunday??? [Zurich area]

Any ideas for places to go and things to do on a Sunday? We ave just moved to zurich with our 7 month old and don't know our way round much. Not much open on a Sunday which takes a bit of getting used to....

Thanks

Re: Things to do on a sunday???

I have a great suggestion, your little 7 month should hopefully be old enough to really enjoy it.

S4 from Zürich HB (The Sub-Platform 1 under the Shopville) until Station "Wildpark-Höfli", then follow the signs to the Wildpark Langenberg.

There is a restaurant there as well if you get peckish.

Enjoy!

Shopping is not on the list.

Perhaps you could come along and play five-a-side football on Sunday afternoon?

You know, it'd be good to let off some steam, do some exercise and meet some others - even for the beer afterwards

Ok, maybe with a seven month old it'd be tricky...

Remember to get your groceries by around 4-5pm on Saturday afternoon, as many shops close then

Re: Things to do on a sunday???

My friend came to visit in November and we had this same issue. I am still trying to adjust to things not being opened on Sunday (after 1.5 years here). I found a trip up to Uetliberg is nice - but only if it isn't cloudy, the weather isn't too horrible (bundle up even if its nice here!) and if it's even practical this time of year. Somebody else on the forum will have to help me with that one - the walkway was starting to become ice when we went in November. Do they try to keep it clear year round? If you can't go now, or even if you do, be sure to go back when it's warmer. The view is amazing and it gives you something to do on a Sunday. If you go to the HB they have trains going directly there. Be sure to get a zone extension pass though.

Re: Things to do on a sunday???

Yeah, sometimes we even have real men playing, but the majority of us are limp-wristed metreosexuals or Ladies.

Really, it's a casuals game, very relaxed and open to everyone, even real men (like Salsa_Lover, who's so manly we put him in goal )

We take breaks once someone asks for one; we don't play hard; we miss a lot; we're only there for the daylight and fresh air, really, and pretending we're doing some exercise...
