There are fun times to be had all over the city, and this handy guide has everything you need to know to make the very most of your Friday to Sunday. This weekend, you'll be hard pressed not to find a funky thing to do, with Christmas in July sprinkling some seriously seasonal magic across the entirety of the Entertainment Quarter, the incredible National Indigenous Art Fair coming to Sydneytown for two days of amazing art-gazing and maker-meeting, and for all those who want to bust out of town, the oppurtunity to get lost in a massive maze in a normally secret garden for the Mayfield Garden Winter Festival.  Plus, for all those inclined to get their jig on, head out in your weekend-best and cut a rug on the best dancefloors in Sydney.

Five must-haves to prepare for a date

It’s time. IRL dates are back and you’re going out! Jumping back into the dating pool post-2020 may feel extremely daunting (for good reason!), but it’s totally worth it to feel that spark, make a meaningful connection or just have a fun night out. Preparation is the key to all success, even in your social life, so prioritize these must-haves before swiping right. 

NAIDOC Week in Sydney

NAIDOC Week in Sydney

NAIDOC Week is a big week for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians alike. It’s all about celebrating the richness and resilience of First Nations history and culture, and drawing much-needed attention to the world’s oldest living culture and all the beauty that comes with it.  NAIDOC stands for 'National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee', and was created in 1956 as a means of organising national events celebrating Indigenous culture.This year, NAIDOC Week will run from Sunday July 3 to Sunday July 10, with the theme for 2022 being ‘Get up! Stand up! Show up!’, which is extremely fitting given the continued fight of First Nations communities to secure legal, environmental and institutional justice and reforms, with this year heralding a new chapter in Australia’s Indigenous history that prioritises justice, equity and recognition as the pavers of the road towards reconciliation.  Sydney’s Eora Nation will be coming alive this week with live music, art and cultural festivities and free events, and everybody, regardless of where they come from, is warmly welcomed to come along in celebrating what has always been, and always will be, Aboriginal land.  Celebrate culture and country all year round with our list of the best places to see Indigenous Art in Sydney.

There’s absolutely tons to see and do in this flourishing city (one of the biggest in Germany), from the medieval old town to the gothic ‘cathedral’ and the lovely Römerberg square. There’s also a whole host of great restaurants, and if you like a drink, track down an apple wine tavern. But after all this fun, sounds like you might need a cosy place to rest your head, right? Thankfully for you, Airbnb has it all, whether you’re travelling with pals, the whole family, or on a romantic getaway.  Recommended: the best hotels in Frankfurt This article includes affiliate links.

Wendy's Secret Garden

Wendy's Secret Garden

The secret may be well and truly out about this hidden garden, but it really is heartwarming story and a space worth sharing. When Wendy Whiteley lost her husband, Australian artist Brett Whiteley, in 1992, she funnelled her love and grief into transforming a disused, derelict train yard space.  Wendy’s Secret Garden – which is at the foothill of her private home in Lavender Bay – has been nurtured by Whiteley and two gardeners over the past 25 years. They’ve planted natives, exotics, plants and herbs and landscaped the space with winding paths supported by raw bush timber balustrades, benches to sit on, cobbled stairs and retaining walls and paths. Alongside the natural beauty of curling ferns, flowering lilies and towering shady figs, you’ll also find bronze busts, engraved stone tablets, wooden carvings and other sculptures dotted around the garden. These artworks serve as a point of inspiration for Whiteley and the community alike, with many being donated by local artists. The garden also reveals majestic views of the sparkling harbour foreshore, framing the Harbour Bridge and the fringes of North Sydney and the CBD. The garden’s long-term future was in a precarious balance up until recently in 2015, when the NSW State Government granted North Sydney Council a 30-year lease on the garden to secure its future. This should hopefully retain public access to the garden after Wendy's home is sold as part of an extraordinary $100 million bequest she is leaving as a cultural gif

The Prince Hotel

The Prince Hotel

It’s a pub! It’s a hotel! It’s a bar! It’s a restaurant! It’s basically the most versatile venue in St Kilda, given that it encompasses most of the block and contains The Prince Hotel, Prince Dining Room, Prince Public Bar, Little Prince and Prince Bandroom. See, developers, we can all get along. The Prince Hotel manages to straddle that cool, inner-city vibe with luxury suites – and it all begins from first entrance. You'll see art installations projected on the wall in the reception area before heading to modern rooms that still have a little art deco flare. The hotel is bigger than you might think, with an array of room options (with decent sized balconies too, might we add). And, although it's located on St Kilda's bustling Acland Street, noise doesn't seem to travel up to your room. The bathroom is stocked up with lush Grown Alchemist products too, so all you really need to do is show up and the rest is taken care of. It makes for the perfect city escape – be it midweek or on a weekend. Book a room before heading down to Prince Dining Room, where chef Dan Cooper whips up a seasonal, ingredients-driven menu. If casual drinks are more your thing, the Atrium is what feels like an outdoor rooftop terrace – except it's inside and covered so you can stay warm and enjoy a cosy, moody and intimate vibe. Prefer staying in? Pop down to Little Prince Wine and grab yourself a bottle of something from their impressive cellar, and make your way back to your room to sit back, relax an

Sutton Gallery

Sutton Gallery

Not the largest in town, but we think it’s one of best contemporary art galleries. Due to its size, it only exhibits one artist or group at a time on a monthly rotation, and is well worth a visit on a lazy Saturday afternoon followed by a few beers on Brunswick Street. Look out for paint and photography exhibitions coming up in the space, as they celebrate 30 years in Fitzroy.

Gertrude Contemporary

Gertrude Contemporary

A dead giveaway that the Gertrude is having an exhibition opening is the sea of hipsters gathered outside their expansive window. It’s not surprising then that this place is so popular: not only does it showcase up and coming Melbourne and international artists, but it's firmly on the radar for all the cool kids.  The gallery is definitely worth a look for – more often than not – large-scale sculptures of mixed media, which will definitely open your mind to more ambitious creative concepts.

The Benalla Art Gallery

The Benalla Art Gallery

Situated in the heart of Victoria’s bushranger country, the Benalla Art Gallery is a striking, modern building by the banks of Lake Benalla. Paintings, textiles, ceramics and sculptures – the gallery houses an ever-growing permanent collection featuring historically pertinent works depicting the Australian-European settlement, post-modern leanings of contemporary artists and exceptional Indigenous works.

Griffith Park Free Shakespeare Festival

Griffith Park Free Shakespeare Festival

Each summer, Bard fanatics watch their favorite works come to life at the historic Old Zoo in Griffith Park. Independent Shakespeare Co. puts on a series of lively productions each week, inviting audiences to take a seat on the grass (read: bring a picnic blanket) and enjoy performances like this season’s headliners: Knight of the Burning Pestle (July 2–31) and Macbeth (Aug 6–Sept 4). You’ll find a few changes to the 2022 season that’ve carried over from last year: Since work is still underway on a permanent performance stage, the Independent Shakespeare Co. is instead setting up slightly farther up the hill at the Old Zoo. That means each performance will only be able to accommodate about 450 people, so reservations will be required. Registration opens on June 24.

Getty Center

Getty Center

What’s now called the Getty Villa served as the decades-long home for the J. Paul Getty Trust’s extensive art collection. But in 1997, the Getty Center opened. The end result is a remarkable complex of travertine and white metal-clad pavilions that houses ornate French furniture, recognizable Impressionist pieces and rotating exhibitions. Its relative inaccessibility is more than compensated for by free admission and panoramic views, from the hills and the ocean in the west all the way around to Downtown in the east. What to see inside Once you’ve parked at the bottom and taken the electric tram ride up the hill, one thing becomes apparent: It’s a big place, with works displayed in four permanent pavilions, an exhibition space and the adjacent Getty Research Institute. The West Pavilion’s Impressionist pieces are a perennial crowd-pleaser, particularly Van Gogh’s Irises. Across the way, the South Pavilion features French decorative arts, outdone only by the baroque room recreations in the East Pavilion. Make sure to head to that building’s upper level, where you’ll find a number of Rembrandt masterpieces. Meanwhile, the North Pavilion features art exclusively made before 1700—most exquisitely, a collection of illuminated manuscripts on the lower floor. What to see outside You could stroll along the Getty’s myriad courtyards, overlooks and fountains without ever stepping foot inside a gallery and still come away satisfied. The most notable destination is Robert Irwin’s Central

Hawthorn Makers Market

Hawthorn Makers Market

Established in 1979 and held on the first Sunday of every month, the Hawthorn Craft Market evolved into the Hawthorn Makers Market after almost 40 years as one of Melbourne's most loved markets. This monthly market is a true all-rounder. It's renowned for the quality of its handcrafted jewellery, cards, accessories and homewares, but is also known for selling handy items for the garden, as well as homebaked treats. Head along to Hawthorn Arts Centre from 10am to 3pm to peruse more than 70 stallholders.

Rose Street Artists' Market

Rose Street Artists' Market

Each Saturday and Sunday the Rose St Artists' Market gathers some of Melbourne's most exciting artists and designers to display their wares and talk all things handmade. The market has been buzzing since 2003 and is modelled off similiar markets in London, Berlin and New York.  Weave your way through the crowds and duck into the warehouse to check out the handmade fashion, food and curios for sale. The artists are usually on hand to compare crochet needles and discuss their work, so drop in for a squizz, a chat and a haircut from the resident hairdresser. Many artists are also open to being commissioned for bespoke items so it always pays to chat to them if you're looking for something specific.  The best way to reach the market is by public transport – travelling via the route 11 or route 96 trams is the easiest option. 

The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever 2022

The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever 2022

In 2013, 300 Kate Bushes (or Cathys) gathered in the seaside British town of Brighton to re-enact that famous 1978 'Wuthering Heights' video clip, red dresses and all. History was made, with Sydney's very own suburb of St Peters going off with hundreds of Kate Bush worshippers dancing that very special dance.  This year on July 30 (which is, in fact, Kate Bush's birthday), Sydney Park will become the proverbial dance-moor for yet another 'Wuthering Heights' flashmob, with Sydneysiders frolicking alongside more than 30 other Kate Bush lovin' flash mobs around the world on the very same day. In light of season 4 of Stranger Things, this day of gleeful interpretative dance action might strike a chord with more people than usual, with the 1978 classic getting another well-deserved spot in the sun for everyone of all ages in 2022.  You can find the full schedule for the day on the Facebook event page, and as always, we recommend studying up on the fantastically fluid choreography via YouTube.  The event is free, but there will be people collecting donations on the day to cover costs, with any surplus getting donated to the Women's Legal Service NSW. No kind of booking is necessary, just simply turn up, don a red gown, red stockings and black belt, and bring only your most fluid of dance moves. This is the stuff that legends are made of.  And remember – it gets cold on those wiley, windy moors. Want more wild and whacky? Check out our list of the best stuff happening in Sydney thi

Centre for Contemporary Photography

Centre for Contemporary Photography

The name says it all. Set up in the mid 80s as a not-for-profit exhibition and resource centre, the CCP still holds photography courses for beginners and those wanting to further their skills. There are five spaces within the building and at night, especially if you’re drinking at the Marquis of Lorne, you’ll view a range of works from emerging and established photographers from the Night Projection Window.   Check out our hit-list of the best galleries in Melbourne.

Heide Museum of Modern Art

Heide Museum of Modern Art

Heide Museum of Modern Art is a torch bearer for Australian modernism, but also champions contemporary Australian art – in the spirit of its founders John and Sunday Reed, patrons and collectors who fostered the local modernist movement in the 1930s and 1940s. While the focus is on Australians, international contemporary art is also exhibited. The Museum is comprised of three core buildings – Heide I, II and III – as well as extensive gardens and a sculpture park.  In 1934, the Reeds bought and settled on the site, calling it Heide after the town of Heidelberg just across the river. Over the next decade they turned Heide into a hub for artists, writers and thinkers who shared their progressive social and cultural ideals. The Angry Penguins (including painters Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker, Joy Hester, Arthur Boyd and John Perceval) alternately lived, worked and played here in the 1940s. Heide I is the Reeds' original farmstead, while Heide II is a slice of modernist architecture designed by David McGlashan in 1964, when the family outgrew their original digs. After the Reeds passed away in 1981, the public art museum and sculpture park was established, and a larger building was built, with its zinc facade now the distinctive, recognisable face of Heide MOMA. In addition to the three museum spaces, there is a gift shop and Café Vue. Check out our hit-list of the best galleries in Melbourne.

We think we want to live at this super-cool new Zurich hotel

A sleek, new hotel is coming to Zurich and it’s creating a serious buzz around the city before it’s even opened. FIVE Zurich is the latest venue from the renowned FIVE Hotels brand, who operate luxury venues around the globe, including a starry, lavish outpost in Dubai. FIVE Zurich boasts some very fine accommodation for those wanting to call it home for a few nights. There are 87 suites and 62 ‘lifestyle rooms’, all styled around a contemporary, arty theme and housing all the-mod cons you could possibly need. But FIVE isn’t just for overnighters, oh no. This is very much a nightlife and dining destination that’s sure to be frequented by party-loving locals, who can take their pick from seven eclectic spaces, encompassing restaurants, bars and a nightclub. Dining-wise, you’ll find the 1920s-inspired Maiden Shanghai, global street food accompanied by colourful street art in Soul St, and an extensive collection of Swiss wines at The Vault.

Gear up for world-class cycling action this summer as the Tour de France hits Lausanne

Gear up for world-class cycling action this summer as the Tour de France hits Lausanne

Prepare for a summer of cycling in Lausanne this year, as the world’s most famous cycle race lands in the city during July, with various activities organised around the race to encourage residents to hop onto two wheels themselves. But before you head out on your own pedal-powered road trip, make sure you catch a glimpse of the Tour de France drama, which arrives in Lausanne on July 9. After setting out from Dole in the French Jura Mountains, riders will head into the city and grapple with a gruelling nine kilometres of hills. This means climbing the Avenue d’Ouchy, crossing Place Saint-François and Pont Chauderon, and then attacking the wince-inducing 12% incline of Avenue de Beaulieu. Having given those thigh muscles a solid workout, riders then finish in front of the Pontaise Olympic Stadium – a suitably grand setting after the test they’ve just endured. There’ll also be further world-class cycling during October, when the inaugural edition of the women’s Tour de Romandie competition takes place as a circuit race in Lausanne, as part of the UCI Women’s World Tour. For anyone wanting to hit the road themselves after seeing how the pros do it, Lausanne is the place to be. Choose from scenic countryside jaunts that invite leisurely riding, cycle routes that include stops at gorgeous vineyards or perhaps even a winding mountain climb if you’re feeling ambitious – and very fit. So, whether you’re an experienced rider looking for the next challenge or still learning how to balan

Així es menjarà al Primavera Sound

El Primavera Sound ha anat ampliant i sofisticant la seva oferta gastronòmica amb l'objectiu de demostrar allò que no fa tant semblava una quimera, una batalla perduda: que en un festival de música s'hi pot menjar (molt) bé. El 'lineup' de restauració que presenta Primmmavera, la zona de restaurants del festival, assimila el mateix criteri que el seu equivalent musical, presentant una gran quantitat de tendències i gèneres gastronòmics. I la veritat és que el dinar de festival ja fa temps que va deixar de ser el trist llom amb formatge amb textura de xiclet: aquí n'hi haurà per a tots els gustos. Des de les 'eco-burgers' d'El Filete Ruso a la fusió asiàtica de Casa Xica. Dels irresistibles sandvitxos de La Porca a la perfecta execució del plat que dona nom a The Fish & Chips Shop. De les especialitats hindús de Masala 73 a les empanades de Las Muns i la cuina mexicana de Corazón de Agave. Per no parlar de food trucks que han ampliat el que entenem per street food, com Canalla Urban Food, Pulponeta, Q Street, Cal Pastor o una de les novetats del 2022, Grosso Napoletano, considerada una de les millors cadenes de pizzes del món, que estrenarà la seva versió food truck (amb un forn de llenya integrat) en exclusiva al festival.

“We look like ants!”: Anne Hathaway and Roger Federer take a Grand Tour in a new Swiss tourism video

“We look like ants!”: Anne Hathaway and Roger Federer take a Grand Tour in a new Swiss tourism video

Switzerland is beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that its beauty far, far outshines one of the greatest tennis players of all time parkouring over a glacier with an Oscar-winning, globally renowned actor. This is the clear message of the latest Switzerland Tourism campaign. The video features Switzerland’s own tennis hero Roger Federer teaming up with multi-award winning film star Anne Hathaway, who – in a fictitious storyline, it should be stated – embark on a road trip covering the Grand Tour of Switzerland, to make a promotional tourism video. The Grand Tour is a 1,643-kilometre route that shows off some of the country’s most incredible sights and scenery. As a result, Roger and Anne undertake all kinds of epic adventures – hopping over glaciers, synchronised swimming through icy glacial waters – only to find they barely feature in the final cut of the new commercial, which instead focuses purely on the gorgeousness of Switzerland. Poor Roger and Anne “look like ants” in the finished version, as Anne points out, with the director choosing to max-out on glistening lakes, towering mountains and sweeping meadows, rather than the two A-list celebs. Surprisingly, the mega-famous pairing aren’t too happy at being thrown to the cutting room floor, and they thrash it out with the director and his editing team, to no avail. One of the team even commends Roger’s “amazing abs” on display in a swimming scene – after mercilessly editing them out, that is. Spoiler alert: no abs, amazing

Nuclear bunkers become a talking point in Switzerland again

Nuclear bunkers become a talking point in Switzerland again

One thing that the last few years have taught us is that we live in strange and unpredictable times, further proof of which comes from the discovery that nuclear bunkers are now very much an acceptable conversation topic in Switzerland once again. Switzerland famously built nuclear bunkers during the Cold War, to protect citizens from the potential threat of nuclear weapons being used. Now that international tensions have mounted again with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, coupled with increased murmurings about nuclear activity, those same bunkers are back on the agenda.  It’s not known exactly how many bunkers were built, but the total number is thought to run into tens of thousands. Currently, most bunkers are derelict or disused (or used for less-terrifying purposes than avoiding nuclear conflict, like storage), but it’s believed many of the shelters could easily be used for protection again if needed. Add to this the fact that Swiss law requires local municipalities to provide a form of nuclear shelter for all of its residents, and it’s not too difficult to see why there’s suddenly renewed interest in these spooky spaces. One of the most well-known of these is Lucerne’s Sonnenberg Tunnel. Nowadays used simply as part of a motorway, the tunnel was the world’s largest civilian nuclear shelter when it was built in the 1970s, with enough room for 20,000 people.

Switzerland has been voted the fourth happiest country in the world

Switzerland has been voted the fourth happiest country in the world

It may be painfully expensive to buy a beer at times and it may get cold – like really cold – in the winter, but none of that matters when it comes to true happiness in Switzerland, as the country has been ranked as one of the happiest places to live on the planet yet again. The ranking appears in the annual World Happiness Report published by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Solutions Network. For the fifth year in a row, Finland topped the table, followed by Denmark, Iceland and Switzerland, with the Netherlands in fifth place. Clearly, the Nordic countries are the place to be if you want to boost your happiness. Although impressive, Switzerland’s position at number four is one spot lower than the previous World Happiness Report rankings in 2021, which placed the country third in the table. The United Kingdom ended up a lot lower down the rankings in 17th place, one spot below the United States in 16th. The report uses data from the Gallup World Poll and assesses a range of factors to measure happiness, including life expectancy, gross domestic product, social support and freedom to make life choices. It should also be noted that the data was collected before the Russian invasion of Ukraine. If you’re looking for ways to celebrate Switzerland’s pretty-darn-happy status, take a look at our recommendations for the best things to do around the country, which includes lots of tips for making the most of Switzerland’s magnificent outdoors.

El gran centro de acogida de refugiados ucranianos en Cataluña será la Fira de Barcelona

El gran centro de acogida para refugiados ucranianos de Cataluña se ubicará en la Fira de Barcelona y empezará a funcionar a partir del viernes 18 de marzo. Así lo informó en 324 tras las declaraciones de José Luis Escrivá, ministro de Inclusión, Seguridad Social y Migraciones, que ha puntualizado que este centro tiene tres funciones: dar una orientación inicial a las personas refugiadas que lleguen a Barcelona, facilitarles los trámites para obtener el permiso de trabajo y de residencia en 24 horas, y derivarlos a lugares más adecuados en caso de que lo necesiten. Así pues, la Fira de Barcelona acogerá a las personas refugiadas que lleguen a Barcelona y allí podrán pasar las primeras noches, hasta que puedan recibir una ubicación donde instalarse definitivamente. En el centro, los refugiados también recibirán asistencia jurídica y psicológica y el espacio también funcionará como centro de operaciones de la Cruz Roja y para personas refugiadas en tránsito. Además, en la capital catalana se están evaluando otras posibles localizaciones con capacidad y condiciones para acoger a unas 400 personas. Según el Gremio de Hoteles de Barcelona, ​​se han habilitado cerca de 3.000 plazas en una veintena de establecimientos entre la ciudad de Barcelona y las comarcas que le rodean. En el resto del estado hay otros centros de acogida, como el de Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid), que abrió el pasado viernes y donde hasta ahora se han atendido a 550 personas, según ha informado el Ministerio de I

Miami’s party-starting DJ Behrouz returns to a Zurich club this weekend

Miami’s party-starting DJ Behrouz returns to a Zurich club this weekend

He may be from Miami, but acclaimed house DJ Behrouz Nazari – known simply as Behrouz when he’s behind the decks – has always had a close relationship with Switzerland, which he’ll be renewing when he hits Zurich’s Hive club on Saturday night. Behrouz has made a name for himself in the underground electronic scene over the years thanks to his deep, punchy and soulful take on dancefloor-focused house, which has led him to clubs and festivals around the world. This includes frequent sets at Zurich’s Club Q (sadly no longer with us – read what Behrouz told us about Club Q here, back in 2017) and the epic, wild, desert ride that is Burning Man festival, where Behrouz became a regular on the mighty Robot Heart bus – an actual bus converted into a mobile festival stage, armed with rack-upon-rack of hefty speakers. It suited Behrouz’s uplifting sound perfectly, and you can hear that sound for yourself when the man himself takes charge of the sonics at Hive’s long-standing club night, Rocket (Rakete). He’ll be headlining a bill that also features a host of other DJ talent, including Animal Trainer, Acid Flora, Dario D’Attis and Kyuubi. It promises to be a fine night of forward-thinking grooves. Behrouz plays Rocket at Hive, Zurich, on Saturday February 26.
