25hours Zurich Langstrasse

Red high heels and fishnet stockings, ties and tailor-made suits - worlds collide at the junction between the lively Langstrasse and the ultra-modern Europaallee. Business meetings take place during the day, and in the evenings, the neon lights flicker above the bars. Inspired by the contrasts between banking and the red-light district, between art and capitalism, the designer Werner Aisslinger and his team see the 25hours Hotel Zurich Langstrasse created a self-contained microcosm. Regularly changing resident artists ensure a steady flow of creative input. At the heart of the 25hours Hotel Langstrasse is the ground floor, home to the Cinchona Bar and NENI. Here, Zurich natives and urban explorers can meet for an Oriental lunch or dinner - and for a digestif afterwards. The 170 rooms are comfortable sanctuaries with design elements inspired by themes from the red light district, the bourgeoisie, or the world’s penthouses.

25hours Hotel Zurich West

Formerly an industrial area, now with new clubs, global companies, contemporary museums - the neighbourhood surrounding the 25hours Hotel Zurich West thrives on change. To Alfredo Häberli, it is a location that deserves a special splash of colour. The designer from Zurich is known for his designs for Alias, Camper, Iittala, Luceplan, Vitra, and Moroso. He came up with the entire interior design concept. He combines new and classic design elements, creates colour worlds and illustrations in the rooms in juxtaposition with the modern setting. The central bar in the lobby is a marketplace for hotel guests, locals, and the neighbourhood’s scene kids. During the day, it offers workspaces and a relaxed atmosphere for meetings. For a lunch at noon, after work for a drink, pre-drinking before going clubbing, and everything inbetween. Always included: The view over the little Hard Turm Park and the terrace during summer.

JOSEF

The Josef restaurant in Zurich-West has done away with the main course and enables curious guests to try out creatively combined dishes from all over the world, just as they please.The menu at the Josef is a delight for adventurous food lovers: elderberry risotto with meadow flowers, fried octopus with fava beans and mint – or how about onsen egg with edos, hop shoots and Belperknolle cheese? The dishes make you so curious, that it is difficult to choose. But the Josef has come up with a solution to this dilemma: all the dishes are served in small portions, so that guests can combine and sample whatever they please. Three dishes are generally enough to satisfy a normal appetite.

PÉCLARD CAKE SHOP AT SCHOBER

One of the most traditional cake shops in the city of Zurich. There’s probably no inhabitant of Zurich who did not press his face against its shop-windows as a child. The giant window displays with the utterly delicious pastry or the legendary home-made cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream seduced entire generations. Only few changes have been made. The interior has been gently refurbished and the offer renewed in the same gentle manner. In addition to the classic “Gugelhopf” (bundt cake) the cake shop presents creations according to best French patisserie tradition. In addition, a daily changing plat du jour is served.

Restaurant Caduff’s Wineloft

Cuisine. Exuding vitality and power, but also subtlety and perfectionism. The food is just like Beat Caduff himself. We transform the best original produce into small, sophisticated masterpieces of everyday cuisine. Dedicated and ambitious, Caduff does not demand the moon and the stars – in fact, quite the opposite. A confident effortlessness distinguishes his cuisine.Thousands of wine bottles lie in an air-conditioned undercroft under the Wine Loft, illuminated by candles. The wine menu available in the restaurant contains a collection which could be a tourist landmark in itself. Even experienced wine connoisseurs pay attention when Beat Caduff waxes lyrical about his newly-discovered rare wines. This may seem to be a slight exaggeration, but it’s not. You should see Beat Caduff at the Zurich Market at 4 am doing the shopping! This requires the utmost concentration and real passion – he knows exactly what he wants. Only the freshest vegetables, the most aromatic fruit, only the tastiest herbs. He also demands the highest quality meat, fish and cheese from his suppliers. There is no excuse.

Haus Hiltl

Haus Konstruktiv, Gebaeude © Peter Baracchi

Museum Haus Konstruktiv is located in the Heart of Zurich, in one of the finest industrial buildings: the former electrical substation Selnau. The museum counts as the only one in Switzerland and one of the few in Europe dedicated to preserving the legacy of the most important Swiss contribution to art history: Constructive and concrete art, represented by artists including Max Bill, Camille Graeser, Richard Paul Lohse and Verena Loewensberg. The exhibitions are essentially about the continuation of this legacy into the present and, at the same time, about how contemporary art concepts are reflected in historical predecessors. This dialog usually takes place in two to three parallel solo or group exhibitions.In the permanent collection visitors can see “The Rockefeller Dining Room” by Fritz Glarner. The artist conceived a walk-through painting based on his “relational painting” concept, thus creating a shining example of modernist interior design.The museum has an exquisite museum shop and a small and modern café.
