The weather forecast predicts colder temperatures, so it’s time to recommend some venues for fondue. And remember – only tourists believe that there are penalties if you lose your piece of bread in the pot...well, and some locals. Don't believe them! Here you'll find my favorite hot (cheese) spots in town to enjoy a really good fondue
Restaurant Kornhaus One of my personal favourites is Restaurant Kornhaus at Limmatplatz. Just next to C&A most people miss the venue, but it's a treasure for enjoying an authentic wonderful Fondue. Restaurant Kornhaus, Langstrasse 243, 8005
Chässtube Rehalp /Fribourger Fonduestübli
These two venues are often mentioned in the same breath when talking about Fondue suggestions: Chässtube Rehalp and Fribourger Fonduestübli.No wonder, as both are owned by the same team and they know what they're doing. Fribourger Stübli, Rotwandstrasse 38, 8004 Chässtube Rehalp, Forchstrasse 359, 8008
It's one of the few venues in town that never change. Once a year i eat their famous fondue instead of my standard Cordon Bleu with fries there. Who am i kidding? Fondue every week in winter, Cordon Bleu in summer. Köchlistube, Köchlistrasse 6
The small chalet in the small garden of Huusmaa is extremely comfortable. For 27 francs you'll get Fondue à discretion. Huusmaa, Badenerstrasse 138
Frau Gerolds Winterstube
At Frau Gerolds Winterstube you'll get the impression of sitting in your own living room. The only exception being the staff that bring you food and drink (well, i don't know how you live but that doesn't happen in my living room). They serve Fondue until the end of February. Gerolds Garten, Geroldstrasse 23/23a, 8005
Here you'll feel like you're on vacation in the (mini) mountains, including a fireplace and a digestive walk back into town. Chalet Züriberg is open until 31st of January. Chalet Züriberg, Orellistrasse 21, 8044
What does a Whisky Fondue taste like? I don't know. But i'll try it at Chalet Binz and will tell you about it. Binz49, Grubenstrasse 49
At the Christmas Market (Wienachtsdorf am Bellevue) you can also eat Fondue. A good one. Better make a reservation today if you don't want to miss it. Wienachtsdorf, Sechseläutenplatz
A stylish but rustic chalet amidst Sihlcity: Fräulein Holle (Miss Hulda) serves Fondue daily from 11 am, except for Sunday, when they start at 6 pm. Get your shopping done, enjoy a fondue and then maybe even a movie. All in one place. Until 30th December. Fräulein Holle, Kalanderplatz Sihlcity
