Summer in Zurich 2018

posted on | updated on | by Zuri Girl

Want to try something other than hiking this Swiss summer? We have 5 fun summer activities to keep you busy these next couple of months.

Street Parade

For 1 full day and night Zurich turns into one big electronic music party. This year’s theme, Culture of Tolerance, will be sure to please all senses as all Swiss inhibitions go out the door and everything from nudity, crazy costumes, and wild dancing takes over the city. Although the parade of Love Mobiles begins at 14h, the party begins in the morning as party goers take over the city and lasts into the early Sunday morning hours throughout clubs around Zurich. If you like electronic music, wild chaos and day parties, let this be your day! Street Parade Website. For some of the hottest private parties, book your tickets now. Our favorites include the Boum Boum au Lac . The View Hidden Bar and The Bikini Pool Party @ Barfussbar.

Paddle Boarding

You have no doubt seen Paddleboarders all over the lake, keeping fit and soaking up the sun all at the same time. Don’t let another year go by without giving it a try yourself. There are plenty of places to choose from to get a lesson or just rent a board. Who knows, maybe you will love it so much, you will buy your own gear for next year!!! Here are a few places to try: Stand Up Paddle School . SUP Swiss . SUP Kultur . SUP Surf . ASVZ SUP …. and our new favorite, SUP Yoga!

Rooftop Bars

What is better than just relaxing and enjoying a drink with a great birds eye view over the city buzz below? There are plenty of rooftop bars around Zurich to enjoy summer days and nights, complete with feel-good summer vibes. George Bar & Grill . Nelson Pub RooftopThe View Hidden Bar . • • •  Rooftop Restaurant & Bar


This one is for the ladies only…a perfect spot to relax and take in the sun, topless if you wish! Right in the middle of Zurich on the lake, women can lounge, eat small snacks, and partake in either yoga or massage. Three nights a week, the Frauenbadi is transformed to Zurich’s most magical waterfront bar (men are allowed at night): Barfussbar.


Open every day with the exception of Monday, try out their wave pool and learn to surf without having to leave Zurich! Not ready to put your toes on the nose of a surfboard? Grab the girls and enjoy a cocktail while sitting back and watching the surf show. Check out the calendar of events for hot summer parties with live DJ’s.
