The independent city guide to Zurich


Christmas often brings back cherished memories, but it’s also a time when most people begin reflecting on the past 12 months as the year comes to a close. Some also make New Year’s resolutions, but to be honest we’ve grown weary of this old tradition. That said, some frank reflection on the past can be both healthy and fun, especially this year as Zurich In Your Pocket celebrates its 50th issue. 

We’ve been covering Zurich for eight years now, sharing essential information and tips with the city’s visitors. With this in mind, we’ve taken the time to look back and reflect on how our guide and Zurich have changed over the past decade. You can read our insights about what we’ve learned after printing 50 guides in our little feature here. One thing we can reveal right now: it’s been fun, most of the time, and we’re determined to carry on! 

But the Christmas season is also a time of warmly illuminated streets, charming markets and glühwein stalls. Since we began writing this guide, the number of markets and Christmas events has grown steadily. These Yuletide venues prove that Zurich is evolving into a genuine Christmas destination. Christmas aside, we’ve also covered everything from restaurants and nightlife to sightseeing, shopping and short winter day trips, just as we’ve done in the first 49 issues. Enjoy the holiday season with Zurich In Your Pocket and enjoy Zurich in 2018 and 2019!
