Grape Picking in Stein am Rhein anyone?

Do you fancy a day out this weekend picking grapes in a working vineyard then afterwards tasting some of the delicious wine from the same vineyard along with local sausages and cheeses? Stein am Rhein is one of those beautiful “chocolate-box’ towns full of character, not too far from Zurich and very close to the border with Germany.

So why not join our friends at Zurich4you on a wine picking and wine tasting event next Saturday 6th October. For full details of the event and for registration please click here.

Viadukt Festivities, Knabenschiessen & Jungfrau Marathon

Don’t forget the day of fun, food and festivities at the Viadukt Market in Limmatrasse 231 in Zurich starting today and lasting until 2am tomorrow morning! Entrance is free and there is music, art, food, wine, a photo exhibition, a fashion show, tango dancing tasters and lots more. See you there!

On Saturday till Monday there is the Knabenschiesen shooting festival at Albisgüetli, with a Chilbi with rides and attractions. If you happen to be passing through Witikon on Saturday there is a “Dorf Markt”market taking place from 9am – 4pm with lots of stalls featuring diverse products and specialities.

The weekend weather forecast is for warm and sunny temperatures – so you may even fancy a dip in one of the Badis before they start closing for the season from next week onwards.

And if you’re looking for a trip further afield the Jungfrau Marathon is taking place on Saturday too.
