In Zurich for 12 hours - Any Recommendations?


On June 24th my wife and I will be in Zurich for 12 hours on a layover. We want to leave the hotel and see a couple of things but not sure what. We can probably only see a few things so I wanted to get some suggestions on the best stuff to do. We're 28 with no kids and prefer the less touristy stuff.

1. Re: In Zurich for 12 hours - Any Recommendations?

I found most unique experience in Zürich eating the place called "Blinde Cue"- Blind Cow. All servers, cooks, and support staff are either vision empaiered or blind! Cashier is the only person who can see

( naturally). All windows are closed shut, no lights, and you have to give up any thing which may provide any form of light - cell phones, watches, etc. The place is usually booked well in advance, as it has a lot of interest from visitors ( although it is not officially advertised in the guide books). Check their website and call ahead to make reservations for lunch or dinner ( lunch is easer to arrange on the short notice). Enjoy!

Take the Dolderbahn rack railway up to the park and residential area in the heights of residential Zurich, you will come across the newly renovated five star Dolder Hotel.
