It's almost the end of August and i just realized that i haven't completed even half of my summer-bucket-list yet. One item, i want to try out this week: Playing pétanque. There are a few places in town, where you can do this. Here you find my favourite spots:
Picture: via Between table tennis, volleyball and some kids playing football, Josefwiese is perfect for throwing some balls. It's also the official home of the Pétanque Club Zürich.
Picture: via First came the Celts, then the Romans and finally the chess and pétanque players. They all appreciate(d) the wonderful view and the shade of the lime trees.
Picture: via If you don't like an audience, then the school in Wollishofen might be the perfect. The Pétanque-Club Wolliboule trains here too.
Picture: via During high season, it's too dangerous to throw the heavy balls through the cowds. But pre- and post-season it's an amazing place for a nice game of pétanque.
Picture via During summer, Katzensee is a popluar meeting point for pétanque-players. It's easy to combine this past-time with a swimm or a short hike around the two lakes.
Central, in the shade, good vibe... Idaplatz is ideal to hang out. And to play pétanque. If you don't have your own set you can also rent one at Bertabar. Very handy!
The classic par excellence. And thanks to the the flood lights, you can play well into the night. And the bar is just at your finger tips too. Seems like pétanque heaven.
