Zurich (EN) : Zurich 07.03.2024: Oscars, Women & Squares


Grüezi Ronster


As Winter turns to Spring…wait…is that snow I see on the Uetliberg? Anyways, around this time of year Zurich’s squares and «Plätze» come alive, weather notwithstanding. A coffee or a glass of wine under the blossom with a friend or a special someone sounds good, doesn’t it? With that in mind i thought it would be fun to interview some of Zurich’s squares as if they were people. I mean, they certainly have their own personalities and we can find out a little more about their secrets.


Don't forget, tomorrow is also International Women’s day so i have a bonus tip to help you find out more about the cities extraordinary women. Scroll down and get clicking. Have a great weekend and….


Give my love to the city

Good to know: Zurich Is Not Just A Man's World

Good to know: Zurich Is Not Just A Man's World


Friday is International Women’s Day and what better way of celebrating than a tour that celebrates some of Zurich’s most powerful women. offer a 2-3 hour tour that teaches you about some of the cities extraordinary women and the places shaped by them. At the moment you can only do a private tour, (unless you want to wait until the 7th Aug,) but if you can rustle up 12 people then you’re good to go. And if you’re short of numbers i’ll join as well. It sounds fascinating!
