Local Tips

Favorite restaurant/cafe in Zurich?
I really enjoy Lindenhofkeller, a classic in Zurich. Always consistent. Great service, atmosphere, food and wine!  The owner Rene Hofer is hands-on and never misses a beat.


Who inspires you and why?
Many people inspire me, especially those who are about making a positive impact around them (on a small or large scale). People who never let a NO deter them from reaching their goals even if it means to fail a few times. Namely Compassionate, Smart, Driven, Witty, Generous, and Empathetic people.


What advice would you give to your younger self?
Don’t worry so much. The past is gone and the future is not here yet so focus on the now. You can achieve anything you want as long as you put your mind and work into it. Don’t compare yourself to others. Everyone has their own journey and path on this earth.
