Zurich (EN) : Zurich 21.09.2023: Fall, Frites & Velos


Hey Hey Ronster


It's definitely starting to feel more Autumnal. The swimming costume is back in the drawer, the rubber boat is back in the cellar and the suncream has all but run out. Is it too soon to think of days on the pistes, glühwein and, of course, fondue? In my humble opinion it’s a most emphatic no. But there are still a few opportunities to enjoy the last vestiges of summer. Have a great weekend and…

Give my love to the city

Concert: Ron Voyage

Concert: Ron Voyage


Well Ronsters, it’s the last Wednesday of the month next week and you know what that means: that’s right! Ron Voyage is happening. Once a month, i invite you to be surprised with a secret concert. Whether it’s an art gallery, a rooftop or a private living room, i try to pick new and exciting venues every time. To build up a sense of mystique and excitement, you won’t find out where it is until the day before. And you only know who’s playing the moment they walk onstage.

To create an intimate atmosphere (because what is more exciting than intimate and exclusive?) i limit the number of attendees to 50 so get your tickets quick!

And if you own a location or are in a band (or both), you can find out more about how to participate and host your own Ron Voyage.

Note: Doors open at 8pm and the show starts at 8:30pm. And while i don't want to sound like your grandparents expecting you for dinner, i do ask that you arrive on time!


Wednesday 8pm, Location to be revealed

Eating: Chic Frites - The Best Places for Moules Frites

Sometimes mussels get a bad rap. And no, they're not for everyone. But if you do love these, and you love them even more when they're called «moules frites», not just because it sound fancier but because it has fries attached to the name, then you're in luck. I've put together a list of the best places in Zurich to grab these in the fall season. Click the buttons for more buttery, salty goodness.
Good to know: Slow Down With Slow Up

Good to know: Slow Down With Slow Up


Have you heard of Slow Up? The concept is pretty simple. Take a nice street in some beautiful surroundings, close it to traffic and allow people to cycle or inline skate (or whatever), undisturbed by motor vehicles. Sounds good? This weekend the gold coast, (that’s the north coast,) of the lake provides the 42km route with some great places to stop and eat/drink. (Be aware that if you live in the Seefeld area of the city there may well be some traffic disruption.)

But it’s not just Zurich that is taking part. If you fancy a weekend excursion there are several other locations that are «slowing up» over the course of the next yearn with routes available in the very useful «Switzerland Mobility» app that is available for iOS and Android. There are some really beautiful routes coming up so bookmark their page and get those dates in the diary.
