Whether you are watching the fireworks or making your own under warm summer moonlit nights, these are out top picks for July in Zurich:

Fäscht Fever. Zurich knows how to throw a party and this one is so big, it happens just once every 3 years. Züri Fäscht is from 5-7 July and there is fun to be had for all ages. The program is 131 pages thick, so we’re taking our tips from the insiders at NZZ for the top 10 things to do this year, including a cool new zipline from Lindenhof to the Limmatquai and a special Family Themed Ship to watch the fireworks up close and personal.

SUP for a Cause. On the Monday after Züri Fäscht, Supkultur and the ERZ are joining forces again to clean the lake in areas that the larger boats cannot reach. The SUP boards are provided for you and there will be food provided for all volunteers. Register here.

Moonlit Magic. We look forward to pop-up outdoor kino’s every summer and this year FILMFLUSS is celebrating 25 years at Badi Unterer Letten from 10-28 July. Kino Xenix debuts their open air schedule with a Sundance Favorite: Beasts of the Southern Wild on 13 July and Allianz Cinema is offering 31 showtimes beginning 18 July.

Don’t cook @ home. Visit EATbyalex at delish cafe from 13-28 July for a special pop-up where you will find her most loved plant-based dishes and drinks. Beyond the yummy shakes, shots, breakfasts, soups and lunch bowls, we recommend making reservations for brunch with banana pancakes, avocado & pea toasts, and a seasonal fruit porridge! Meals are available for takeout if you just want to pick up a shake or a lunch bowl on the go.

Brutal Eats. The summer of 2019 will be brutal again. Coming Soon will become a brutally devastated cookery from 2 July – 9 August 2019. A 5-course theme menu for CHF 79. Noon becomes brutally easy with their lunch menu. Reserve here.

Foxtrail Fun. If you are looking to escape the heat and head into the mountains, Foxtrail just launched two new mountain trails in Flims/Laax and Davos. Check out why what we enjoy most about chasing this sneaky fox all around town.

Family Fun. Take the kids to the local Robinson Circus. Just be prepared for some inspired clowns to perform at home for you!

IRONMAN Zurich. The final race for IRONMAN Zurich will be 21 July, as beginning 2020 the athletes will move to Thun. This year is extra special with the IRONKIDS races on the 20th…register your kids aged 3-14 for only CHF 10 and watch them cross the finish at Landiwiese.

Soulful Travel. Take advantage of the Early Bird Discounts available for the STAMBHA Yoga Summer Retreat in TUSCANY: 3-10 August 2019
