Ok, we can deny it if we want, but Christmas seems to be definitely happening again this year. Whether you embrace the season or not, one thing is clear: presents will need to be bought. If you’re looking for something a little unusual or just want to avoid shops in general, then why not visit one of the Christmas markets around town.
The oldest Christmas market in the city. Stretches the length of Niederdorfstrasse and has pretty much anything festive you might need. Until 23rd Dec: Monday to Saturday 11 am to 9 pm, Sunday 11 am to 7 pm

Not sure why I’m mentioning this one but I do like to be thorough. It’s the one that has taken over the Main Station and many streets surrounding it. You know about this one already, so I’ll just leave it there. Happy shopping. Until 24th December, Sunday to Wednesday 10.30 am to 9 pm, Thursday to Saturday 10.30 am to 10 pm

1. A different perspective on breakfast
This is the shopping list that my flatmate Luki wrote on a post-it yesterday, which looks much the same as the lists of many other millenials. It took him three minutes to walk to the nearest shop, where he filled his basket,

2. Lucky Dumpling: Authentic Chinese
6 years ago we welcomed 'Dini Mueter' to the Langstrasse. This summer, the bar and restaurant underwent a refurbishment and just reopened its doors with a new concept and a new name. Well, actually the new name is also the concept: Lucky

Whenever a new Japanese restaurant opens somewhere, you can be sure that I’m not far behind. This new locale is called Ooki and serves gyoza, ramen, tempura, udon, Japanese curries and sake. The interior is very authentic, the
