The Opia is a nice store focussing on asian independent fashion designers. In the basement Julian Zigerli is working on his new collection and if you’re lucky, you’ll meet Gipfeli, the dog of the house.

Zürich has embraced ‘shipping container chic’ with the utterly charming urban garden Frau Gerolds Garten. We stopped by for drinks in the early evening, and sipped as the sun went down. Lovely stuff. Positioned beside the railway, I got over-excited about the bundles of overhead wires, which ultimately inspired my Tiny Guide Zurich print. Mixed in with fairy lights, street art, cushions, greenery and a bath of plants (of course) this is a great place to hang out for relaxed food and drinks, and full of opportunities to test out your camera.

Zurich is at its best in the summer, when swimming becomes part of the daily agenda. There are a variety of great places along the river Limmat, most of which are free and open to the public. When it gets too crowded at these, try to find one of the few hidden places along the lake.

This is the best place to escape the winter, the city and the stress. I oftern come here to draw, meditate and enjoy the steamy smell of tropical forests.

The Langstrasse is probably one of the most famous streets in Zurich. It's dirty, rough and full of life. A lot of nice bars, clubs and galleries are located around this street. Some may call it the heart of Zurich. If you're there, have a look at the bar Longstreet, the Perla Moda, the Zukunft and the Dante.

The Hardbrücke is a long, brutal concrete bridge that runs through a former industrial area. I like the view down to the rail tracks and the many construction sites. And, within spitting distance, you can find a few good places to spend a nice evening, such as Helsinki (for concerts), Rosso (for pizza), and Les Halles (for beer and tapas).
