My Favourite places in Zurich

Zurich is a lovely city - when you know were to look as the best places are usually hidden in a backstreet. On the website and the app you find my personal selection of best independent shops and cafes, local producers and events. These are the places that give Zurich it's unique charm.

June's Choice is a project of the creators of Shop Local.
