Congratulations Annabelle! You won day 20 and are going to Morocco on an epic 8-day adventure with Travel Talk Tours!

Need a weekend getaway and can’t decide where to go? Do you like lake views or cosmopolitan charm? Are you a cheese or a chocolate friend? For our awesome giveaway on day 21, you don’t even need to decide, for you can have it all: we are sending you and a friend on a luxurious weekend in Zurich!


Zurich is without a doubt one of Switzerland’s finest gems and has something to offer for everyone. Not only is it home to the Swiss financial centre, the FIFA headquarters, but also Google’s second-largest development center. All that comes with typical Swiss charm, the stunning Lake Zurich, and lots of things to explore.

However, we can almost guarantee that you may not want to leave once you have set foot into your home for the weekend, the ultra stylish 5-star Park Hyatt Zürich Hotel. This sophisticated hotel is not called an urban sanctuary for nothing, but dare to venture out (at least for a bit) because Zurich has so much to offer!

Start with some sightseeing in the Dörfli, the Old Town, with the Grossmünster and the Fraumünster church where you can see beautifully painted windows by Chagall. From here we recommend a short walk to the Zunfthaus zur Waag, where you can enjoy classic Swiss fare with a modern twist.
To walk off such a feast, get your walking shoes on to explore more of the city. The promenade of Lake Zurich and the Old Town are easily manageable by foot. Alternatively, you can hire a bike from “Züri rollt” (Zurich on wheels) to get around – Zurich is extremely bike friendly!


Luckily the Park Hyatt Zürich is located right in the heart of Zurich’s city centre, so it is not far to head to the Bahnhofstrasse, its premier shopping destination and easy to carry all of your spoils back. Of course, all this shopping makes hungry again and you won’t need to live off cheese and chocolate alone (though you could!). Simply end the night with a laid-back cocktail at Park Hyatt Zürich’s very own award-winning  and vibrant ONYX Bar. If you’re feeling giddy throw yourself into more city living, why not join locals for an “apero” (after work drink) and dinner at Quai 61 where you can enjoy lakeside views in the coolest setting the city has to offer?

Afterwards, you can dance the night away at Alice Choo before falling into clouds of cotton in your room – this is how you do a city weekend right!
