If you regularly ride the tram 3 or 14 you may have noticed the police station on the other side of the street to the Sihl river. The main thing I noticed about it was the retro looking neon sign that is more reminiscent of a bar or club than a police station. Behind the police station lies the Kaserneneareal, a large open space surrounded by old barracks buildings.
The Canton police are now moving to a new location and in a city as deprived of land as Zürich a large open space has politicians and property developers salivating at the prospect of getting their hands on it. So what are the plans for this area of the city? No-one knows yet as the plans for its development has turned into a political hot potato with the leftist city council favouring uses for artistic and public purposes and the right wing cantonal government preferring commercial exploitation.
Issues of funding for the repair of the old buildings have now crept into the equation, stirring up the row even further but at present it remains an area that is open to the public and hosts quite a few cultural events. Take a look around while it is in its current incarnation, it might not be that way for long…
Okay, so we’re not basking on the coast of Mediterranean, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the water. At destinations along Lake Zurich there are different types of water sports to choose from – and learning

Hi, We are based in Oberhasli, Zurich, and are looking for somebody to sit a few hours with our cat. We are away between Thursday 14/04 and Monday 19/04, and don't want him to get lonely. If you would like to pay our cat company while reading a book, doing your home office, or would like to stay overnight, we and Ninja would be very happy. Price negotiable, email me [email protected], and help on only some days would be sufficient, since we will have somebody come and feed him daily anyways.
Constantly increasing pressure to perform, new life situations and everyday obligations increasingly ensure in society that there is often little time for recreation and leisure. We have many interests but little time to pursue them, often have a limited circle of friends depending on our hobbies. It is almost impossible to take everything sufficiently into account and thus maintain the necessary balance in life.
This all makes it more important that we spend our time on what really makes us happy and that we can participate in social life.
An active and fulfilling life for all - together, instead of alone!
