Zurich (Switzerland) Reviews
Newest Review: ... rate of approx 2.2 to the £, this made it about £2.50 for a glass of wine, far cheaper than the scaremongers had made me feel it would be. We met our friends in the swing swing bar (titter) and I found out beer was only £3 a glass, about 330ml at a guess, so no big scare there either. So our first night in Switzerland eased our fears of price hikes. The morning arrived and we were being picked up from the Hotel at 1 for the wedding ceremony, so we decided to miss breakfast stay in bed until a bit later, luxury. I went to the supermarket located next door (Sherry sent me, I did not volunteer.) and I purchased 6 1.5 litres bottles of w... more

I’d never been to Switzerland before you know! How thrilling it was to feel that boyish excitement about visiting a new county, exploring new sites, tasting new cultures. Being the inquisitive kind of chap that I am, I insisted on reading as many reviews as I could find on both Dooyoo and good old fantasy Ciaoland. Yet I could feel myself brimming up with outrage and horror at the standard of the reviews and also the information that was within these somewhat half-hearted attempts to describe what I can only say was one of the most romantic, laid back and enjoyable city’s I have visited in my life. Yes, I know it does not have the mood ... Read the complete review

I'm meant to be working at this time; not that I should be unless I want to turn into one of those hated workaholics (it's well past midnight, in case you're asking). Really, though, I can't complain as I've been having my fair share of hols over the past year or so... so much so, in fact, that I haven't kept up with me dooyoo-writing. Shame on me, lad ("lad" metaphorically speaking)... Of course, being in this category I'm meant to be writing about Zurich "in general"... I'd gladly have written about some specific part of the city but there were no further sub-categories to the Zurich cat - oh well! ... Read the complete review

One of the first things to strike you is the degree of cleanliness of this city. Graffeti exists but not to the extent of many other European cities I have visited. The hub of Zurich has to be the Haptbahnhof (Main railway station) not only for transportation but also occasionaly for entertainment and definatly for the cheapest food to be found in any of the restaurants (take away can be more expensive than eat-in). Another good place to eat is the MOVENPIC on the main road BAHNHOFSTRASSE. Good, basic, filling food at reasonable prices. Public loos are of course available at the station and you do have to pay to enter them. If you decide to travel ... Read the complete review

what else do you expect? I have been to Zurich twice for holidays. As the city at the heart of Switzerland's economy, I had expected normal 'big city' rush and culture. To my pleasant surprise, Zurich is a city which combines work and play wonderfully. Next to high-rise buildings you have parks and lakes which transforms you to a different world altogether. I remember thinking, 'Wow, if I could work here everyday will be a holiday'. The people are friendly and nice, with the 'small town' friendliness you would not expect from any big city. Even though the living standard in Switzerland is undoubtedly higher than the rest of Europe, I would ... Read the complete review
