Ice cream has really hit Zurich in recent years, and we're generally talking the Italian-style, milky ice cream. While it's always been fancy to eat ice cream on the lake, there are now some proper gelaterias producing their very own gelato far away from the water too, where you can queue up almost all year to get some of those sinful scoops of sweetness. Needless to say that these days flavours go beyond the traditional vanilla and chocolate to the likes of ginger and basil to satisfy the hipster's need for a little extravagance. In most of them you can also get vegan sorbets and maybe even some Asian variations. We had the difficult task of personally tasting through Zurich's top gelaterias and our list of favourites is below.
