    TMA: Zurich

    Going to see one of my favorite bands at the Helsinki club tomorrow night and think I'll spend the weekend in Zurich, anyone got any suggestions for stuff to do?

    edit: well I got food poisoning or something and been puking nonstop so there's a weekend ruined thanks for the tips though

    Where to start? The supermarket dance club is right next door. The whole shebang is a couple of blocks away from the long street (Langstrasse). If you're into it, I'll buy you a ridiculously expensive craft beer at the international beer bar. They open at 5pm so I don't know what your timetable is like. If you take the number 4 Tram around the corner from the Helsinki, and go to Limmatplatz, you can amble down the Langstrasse, stopping off for Booze at the Mata Hari and excellent Kebab at the appropriately named Best Kebab. You can also see the old city (but I can't stand it), which also one or two good bars from the times when it was Zurich's night out place, and chill at the lake. etc etc. There's a whole shitload of stuff to do, from expensive to fucking ridiculous.

    I'd recommend lunch and/or dinner at Storchen. The view is nice. German beer it at Bauschänzli.

    Or take a boat ride across the lake to Rapperswil. Nice monastery with a rosegarten.

    Be prepared to have your preconceptions about what constitutes expensive readjusted.

    Been to Basel once and paying €20 for a Subway sandwich + drink + cookie was nuts (the same thing would be less than half that in Germany at the time). And Basel is considerably cheaper than the rest of the country.

    Nice to visit, and I do need to see Zurich. But it's heavy on the wallet.

    Which normal human would actually eat at a five star hotel in Zürich? The beer in Bauschänzli is nothing special. Every other bar has either Turbinenbräu or Amboss, two city breweries who make much better beer than the commercial stuff. You want an affordable lakeside drink? The Rote Fabrik. An affordable and absolutely amazing lakeside meal? Rote Fabrik or Fischers Fritz.

    Zürich is expensive, but you can also overdo it.

    Well the walk in clinics are pretty cheap compared to what I'm used to... so at least there's that.

    $7.70 according to this link:

    https://www.handelszeitung.ch/zurich...besonders-viel

    Compared to Berlin its nearly twice as much ($3.90).

    Depends, in the cheapo supermarket chain Denner, Corona is about $7 for a sixpack. In a standard bar a beer is between $3.50 and $4.50 and for imported craft beers about $10 bucks or more.

    So about the same as it is here then. You haven't lived until you've paid $15 for a Bud Light at a show.
    meh
