At the forest’s edge in Schwamendingen lies the Ziegelhütte, a real country inn within the city limits. On the menu you’ll find - surprise surprise - good, rustic dishes like fleischchäs (swiss style meat loaf), schnitzel and risotto but also some small plates perfect to share. You can feel that they like what they do here. Take tram N°7 (direction Stettbach) to Schwamendingerplatz, from there it’s an easy 8-minute walk. Or coming from the centre, hike there through the forest in little more than 30 minutes, starting at the zoo. Apart from the restaurant there is a huge beer garden (with meat from the barbecue) and lots of atmosphere, which makes it popular with hikers, day trippers, regulars and urbanistas alike.Brunch buffet on sunday mornings.
