Excursion: Zoo Zurich

First an important tip: if you take your time, you have a much better chance of seeing animals ... especially in the Masoala rainforest! Tip 2: The volunteers in green are happy to provide information and help with discovery. Since the enclosure has been set up appropriately, visiting the zoo has become both exciting and relaxing. Zurich Zoo is committed to sustainability, nature conservation and the conservation breeding of endangered animal species and provides a lot of information on the various projects during the tour. In addition to the 4,000 animals, the giraffes will soon be in Zurich.

Bar: Felix Bar

Felix Bar - My favorite bar in Zurich: Mekka Thattil (head of housekeeping)

This cozy little bar with its own fireplace right in the middle is always worth a visit.

They have a large and exciting selection of spirits. But the reason I love this bar is, that they really listen to the customers wishes regarding their taste of the drinks.

Restaurant: Gertrudhof

Restaurant Gertrudhof - is a typical Swiss restaurant which offers the best cordon bleus in Zurich. The restaurant itself is small, quaint but cozy and the selection is enormous. Every month there are new Cordon-Bleu specialties such as: flambé wild boar Cordon bleu filled with wild boar raw ham with a spicy Gertrude sauce with bacon, mushrooms, and Barber's Ceddas cheese. I would recommend a reservation because the restaurant is extremely popular.
