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.

Zürich seemed to have exceptional pancakes. Yum. One place we sampled more of these fluffy goodies was in Café Lang – a beautiful haven of dark wood and tiles. It was also one of the places open on a Sunday morning which was extremely helpful. For this reason (plus the fact that its lovely) meant that it was pretty busy on a Sunday morning. We waited at the coffee bar with more espressos while we waited for a table. It might be an idea to book if you decide to go. I loved it here. The staff were really friendly, the food was delicious and they had super-swank toilets – which is always a bonus in my book.

I like this place to cool off during hot summer days. Have a short walk upriver and let yourself float down by the green and fresh water, sourcing from Lake of Zurich. If you have the guts, throw yourself down the crossing bridge.

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).
