    Hi!
    I wanted to shop for some cakes and chocolates at Zurich last month for a friend’s birthday..So I went to Sprungli..And I just couldn’t get enough of this place! I have become a huge fan of chocolates and cakes from Sprungli since. The Luxemburgerli, especially the chocolate one tastes like heaven!

    If you are into Bollywood, it would make you glad to know that DDLJ was shot here in Zurich! Zurich is really a beautiful city. The climate is really amazing in winter when it is just 2 degree celsius during the day and in minus during night.
    Yup,there are many good Indian restaurants out in Zurich. For transportation you can rely on trains , buses and trams which will take all over the city. you must take tourist passes which will enable you to travel free in entire Switzerland in trains, buses, boats and trams.
    Zurich is a lovely place, very beautiful and scenic!

    During our fortnight’s stay at Zurich, we visited many beautiful places. I found a lovely place to eat here and I would like to share my experience about this place..
    I used to go to Cucina almost everyday to have pizzas which were large, properly baked,easily bite into it and very moist! Cucina was undoubtedly the best place to have pizza in Zurich city. My favorite is the pizza Capricciosa :-)

    On our trip to Switzerland,We were trekking Zuri-West, when we came upon this amazing place called Anthony’s kitchen. We ate there and it has the most awesome Asian food I’ve ever tasted..The food and the wine both are just amazing! I took a peach sorbet with vodka! We had a six course meal which can be compared to a feast. We had chicken spring rolls, fresh steamed fish, and papaya salad were the best of all! There are plenty of clubs and bars in Zuri-West so you can check them out as well!

    I love Zurich its climate and the lovely scenery surrounding this awesome place! While we where in this town we visited many restaurants as I am a huge foodie,but I found the food at Greulich the best. The try innovative recipes all the time and take you by surprise..This restaurant offers an awesome balance between basic dishes and haute cuisines, something which I really miss in high-end restaurants. We had a six-course dinner and lovely wine after that and I think they provide value-added service. It was really worth it :-)
    I just love Zurich for everything, the food , people, the scenery!

    Zurich in Switzerland is the most scenic, pictographic place I’ve been to with lovely climate and nice people! There are many places to visit in Zurich..I found this unique French restaurant on my 10-day stay which served awesome food in a great atmosphere! Try the charbonnade, it blew me away! The Charbonnade is a thin crusted beef grilled on charcoal pot on the table. Along with that you’ll get french fries in matchstick size with many sauces..This place is really reasonable for the quality of food and service.Its really worth it. You must also try Entrecote caffe de Paris! A great place to be to in Zurich Switzerland :-)
