We love Autumn. It’s the perfect time of year with fresh fallen leaves, crisp air, and of course, everything pumpkin! Get inspired and discover something new this month!

Zuri Girl’s Top Picks For October…

Fun at the Farm.
Through Saturday October 31st, you can find gigantic pumpkin sculptures, pumpkin specialities like soup, seeds & oils, hundreds of pumpkins to buy, and a creepy bash on Halloween night with carving stations.
Where: Jucker Farm Bächlihof (map)

Ghost Walk in Zurich.
Join Reginald Dent, Paranormal Entertainer, on a journey through Zurich’s haunted heart.  You will hear tales from the cities past about it’s phantoms, executions, murders, and other past time events.  Want more?  Reginald is also a professional palm reader!  Every Friday at 8pm, starting and ending in Paradeplatz. Website

Make a New Recipe.
Minh Cakes in Zurich has a few fun, pumpkin recipes to try.  One we recommend?  Pumpkin cupcakes!  Give it a try and print the recipe on the website. While your at it, sign up for a cake decorating or basic Macaron making class.

Lunch Date. Choose from a gorgeous menu of fresh sashimi and nigiri, to Dim Sum and Bento Boxes at HATO…our favorite spot for a light lunch or romantic dinner, now open on on Mondays!

Escape from the Game.
It’s that time of year again, where we get the creepy crawlies. Book an escape room game right here in Zurich with your friends. 60 minutes of fun, locked in a room, solving riddles.  How much better can it get.  Rated best in Zurich on TripAdvisor, give it a try this October. Website

For All Wine Lovers. The Mövenpick Wine Fair is on again this year at Papiersaal on October 27 and Kalanderplatz on October 28. And heres the deal…think Expovina, but much smaller and more intimate and only the top 250 Mövenpick exclusives. You can buy your entrance ticket online.
