Browsing: Switzerland

Most our travel bloggers are based out of Zurich, Switzerland. Hence Swiss locations are the easiest for us to cover. We like design and boutique hotels, restaurants, golf courses, scenic railways and a hike every now and then.

Recently, Relais & Châteaux extended invitations to one of their legendary gourmet adventures of the special kind. Happening this time: 17 Gault-Millau points, 1 Michelin star, 1 sommelière, 1 world champion chef in a manor house on the shore of Lake Constance. We naturally couldn’t wait to take it in with all our senses…

Recently, local.ch extended invitations for a meet-and-eat of food bloggers at George Bar & Grill in Zurich, Switzerland. Since a good meal also falls into the “lifestyle” category, the renowned food bloggers from Harry’s Ding and Das Filet were joined by a few fashion and lifestyle bloggers.

Many people visit this Grisons (Graubünden) village because of the mythic Vals Thermal Bath by Swiss Architect Peter Zumthor. In addition, the region around Vals is ideal, multifaceted hiking country. For instance, take a hike with us along the ridiculously spectacular panorama trail from Gadastatt to the Zervreil Reservoir!

Every Sunday there is a brunch of colossal proportions in Montreux: If 120 guests are served during a “normal” Sunday brunch, then this could easily increase to a good 450 on Easter Brunch. We decided to figure out how that isn’t a problem at all for food & beverage manager Michel Fouque…
