What’s On In Zurich End of June 2022
Have a great weekend and week ahead! It’s been a very hot and changeable week and the forecast for the weekend is for more sunshine.

The Lobster Club is still going strong at the Dolder Grand and the new terrace at the Baur Au Lac is another great place to visit. There’s still time to visit the Claude Monet Immersive Gardens exhibition before it closes on 17th July. Or maybe you fancy going on a hike (if so check these out)? And don’t forget to check out our list of the Openair Cinemas in Zurich which have already started. Or how about going to one of the Openair Concerts or Festivals? Take a look at the best Ice Cream places in town and maybe you fancy taking out a rubber dingy and floating down the Limmat?
