Snowboarding through Zurich
Nicolas Müller is one of the best snowboarders in the world. Zurich is his hub between home and his sporting profession. So who could be better qualified to offer a few tips for a Zurich winter weekend break?

"In the cold of a Zurich winter,” explains Nicolas Müller, “it’s inside that you find the warm.” By which he means both the cosy interiors of places like the fondue tent in Frau Gerolds Garten and the hearts of the Zürchers themselves. “I love just wandering the streets with my mates,” Nicolas continues. “And going to clubs like the Plaza or the Gonzo and having a ‘Mexikaner’. It’s a Gonzo speciality, a shot like a Bloody Mary. And it’ll keep you dancing right through the night.” 

As a winter sports professional, what Nicolas particularly loves about Zurich is how close it is to the snowy Alps and the great outdoors. “What more can you want than a city that offers you mountains, too?” he enthuses. The Hoch-Ybrig and Flumserberg ski areas really are just a short hop away and even Switzerland’s bigger winter sports resorts are easily reached by bus, train or car. Before he hits the deep snow, though, Nicolas will always treat himself to a spelt croissant and an almond milk cappuccino from Hiltl, the world’s oldest vegetarian restaurant. “Their brunch buffet is just unbeatable,” he beams. After a vigorous day on the slopes, Nicolas recommends a quiet evening at Riffraff, his favourite Zurich cinema, which focuses on showing independent and arthouse films. He’s not averse to a romantic dinner, either, for which he’ll tend to head to the Razzia restaurant. “It used to be a cinema,” he says, “and I just love the crazy interior!” For a nightcap he prefers the Cinchona Bar at the 25hours Hotel on Langstrasse: The cocktails are outstanding, and the city’s nightlife district is just outside the door.
