Any cool idea for a special weekend in Zurich?

At the end of the month (October) it will be my girlfriend's birthday, and I want to organize something special for her. Unfortunately we cannot leave Zurich in that weekend, so.... I'm open to any idea (activities, restaurants, etc)!

Thank you very much in advance to anyone who can help me

Here's one different idea .... An evening Fondue on board a ship on the Zurichsee

To help other EF'ers, can you give us a hint on preferences ( food / sport / concerts / spectator events / walks / hikes / cultural ... ) and an idea on budget.


Enjoy your celebration

Not that I would do it for myself, but my gf loves it.

Re: Any cool idea for a special weekend in Zurich?

Thank you very much to everybody....

She is for Spas, museums, tour around the cities, etc...
About food, she doesn't like places too "fancy", and the idea of the boat dinner is absolutely fantastic for her .

Thank you again!

Re: Any cool idea for a special weekend in Zurich?

If the weather is favourable, you could go for a walk through Irchelpark.
https://www.google.com/search?q=irch...w=1502&bih=706

Start at the Tramstop called "Milchbuck", and amble up though the lawns and terraces and ponds. At the top are the University buildings. Pass through the main concours between them, and towards the end, on your left, you'll find a very prettily laid out herb and medicinal flower garden. Beyond that, just before the road at the top, ist the Wirtschaft Neubühl restaurant:

Be very careful with this idea. If she is suitably impressed you will be expected to do better every birthday.

If it is early in your relationship look for bratwurst and a beer in the park.

Okay, out of my suggestion, skip the restaurant. But setting up a nice little tradition of a walk in the park need not include expanding on the matter, and it remains nicely comfortable and free.

After that, surely just about any further option for sharing a birthday would be preferable?! Although I suppose enduring Ikea - if that's what she enjoys - could be seen as a sacrifice of love.

Judging by the response to this thread its apparent Zurich is a desolate city

Re: Any cool idea for a special weekend in Zurich?

Thank you all...

unfortunately the dolder spa for the weekend is a little bit too expensive, but the other is definitely better

Ikea will be a sacrifice of love...but for her...she really hates ikea, especially in the weekend.

Great! Looks like you've found a sane woman! Well worth it, then, to work on your special weekend, within your sensible budget.

I don’t know how much is too much but if she likes spas but the Dolder is too over the top: Bad Ragaz.
