We are looking for a new room-mate in a WG with 6 other people, located between Ober Letten and Schaffhauserplatz.
International WG, where we share when we feel like and we chill when we feel like :)
The bedroom is part of a 8-room flat, on two floors. We have two bathrooms, so you'll share it...
If you think of a live performance of classical music, I’m sure certain images come to mind – perhaps violinists in tuxedo’s, cellists in evening gowns, plush red theatre seats, the respectful murmur of an expectant...
«Dörflifest» takes place one more time this weekend at Niederdorf. The cobbled streets will be filled not just with hen and stag nights as well as young party goers (the usual crowd) but also a large quantity of locals. So expect a busy place where you find everything your night-owl heart desires from food and drinks, to stalls and live music at Hirschenplatz. Friday from 6 pm, Saturday from 3 pm, Sunday from 10 am, Niederdorf
Festival: On the go
Whenever I return from Asia, I miss the wonderful street food that’s on offer there. Seems like someone heard me. The first
Street Food Festival takes place this weekend with delicacies from the world over, everything to go. Friday starts with a musical introduction and a dinner set-up, Saturday you can eat your way around the globe all day and night and on Sunday the Food Market offers an alternative to the classic brunch. If your mouth is already watering – hang in there, it starts tomorrow. Friday from 5 pm, Saturday & Sunday from 12 pm, Allmendstrasse 92, 8041

Festival: International affair
Next to the «Dörflifest» and the «Street Food festival» there is also a festival at

Festival: Short is sometimes better
It's been twelve years since
Fantoche, the international festival for animations, had its launch in Baden. I've visited the festival several times over the last years and can recommend this trip out of town to all of you. Next to animation shorts you’ll also find cut scenes from video games for national and international designers. This year’s guest is Japan so I’m sure you’re in for some innovative treats and with more than 1000 shorts to choose from, there is something for every taste.
2. to 7. September, Fantoche, Baden
The 25 hours Hotel will turn into a
fashion house for a weekend with pop-up-stores, bars, fashion shows and djs from 10.-12. October. If you’re a fashion designer,
get in touch, there are still some rooms to be taken over by young talents. And if shopping, beauty, fashion and parties all in one sounds like heaven to you: I have 5x2 tickets to give away. Just send me an email and let me know why you have to be there and they could be yours. 10.-12. October, 25 hours hotel
Eating: A taste of sunshine
Dinghy is a lovely little bar with a colourfully decorated forecourt right at Schanzengraben. Next to good coffees and a varied menu with a few selected dishes each day, they also offer a classic «Italian Aperitivo» from Wednesday to Friday. It’s probably one of the few places where you can find some Mediterranean flair this rainy summer. Dinghy, Brandschenkenstrasse 5, 8001. Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 9 am
Shopping tip: Blossoming gifts
My latest recycling discovery is the wrapping paper by
Eden’s paper. After the gift is given and unwrapped, you can bury the paper in the earth. With a bit of luck and dedication the inserted seeds will grow into something edible. Three different kinds of papers are available: «Super Food», «Summer Salad» or «Flower Power» - made only from natural colours of course.
Good to know: New in town
Although I believe that you receive all essential information from me that you need to assimilate in Zurich, I’m aware that there are some of you, who’d like to know even more about Zurich, the system and its bureaucracy.
«Neu in Zürich» is a service by the cantonal council and what it lacks in style it makes up with information. Here you can find everything you'll ever needed to know about health, education, social security, police and customs.
