The old botanical garden is my favorite green island in the city center. Thanks to a collection of moveable wooden chairs, it is an ideal spot for reading or having a chat with friends. The park is surrounded by office buildings and the Schanzengraben: a moat that serves as a hidden promenade from the city’s very center all the way to the lake.

One of my favorite movie theatres. Upon entering the doorsteps, the enchantment begins. And the cinema’s outside lettering is simply legendary.
