Our countrywide guide to the best events and things to do in Switzerland this week. Check out our home page for daily updates on the very best in cultural events, nightlife, live shows and festivals. And check in on the hot list each week (updated every Monday) for our editors’ top recommendations, from Lausanne to Zurich. 

Fondue Chalet Sihlcity  • Zurich
  • 3 out of 5 stars
  • Restaurants
  • Swiss
  • Sihlfeld
This seasonal pop-up restaurant might be located next to the somewhat industrial looking Sihilcity shopping centre but it makes up for it with a cosy atmosphere and authentic menu. Those looking for a more romantic fondue dining experience should book request the old ski cable car on site that has been converted into a snug table for two.
Royaume Melazic  • Lausanne
  • Shopping
  • Gifts and souvenirs
  • Ville Marché
Drawing on the pleasing but rather tenuous link between fairycakes and fairytales, this idiosyncratic place is part cupcake bakery, part t-shirt shop with a princess theme. On the fairytale side of things, the shop’s printed men’s and women’s t-shirts, aprons and even boxer shorts set out to make everyone a princess or prince charming, or even a “prince charming en voie d’extinction” as one pair of boxers proclaims. 
  • Shopping
  • Kreis 4
Following two successful pop-up shops and an online boutique, Dusanka Simic opened her first Jo Brauer boutique in the trendy Zurich Europaallee area in 2015. The boutique stocks a trendy range of unusual yet stylish clothes, shoes and jewellery made by labels from around the world, as well as a small selection of home accessories.
  • Things to do
  • Enge
The view over the city from its rooftop pool is simply amazing, and that alone would almost be worth the entrance. But on top of that, you can also relax in the huge wooden tubs of the old brewery in the basement and - for an additional fee - enjoy the Irish-Roman spa with its steam baths and shallow pools.
Café Bon-Vin   • Geneva
  • Restaurants
  • Swiss
  • price 3 of 4
Have you every tasted a tomato, a goat cheese or a champagne fondue? At Café-Bonvin, you can have it all. The restaurant offers a creative menu to people in search of a more refined version of the national dish. 
Raygrodski   • Zurich
  • 5 out of 5 stars
  • Bars and pubs
  • Cocktail bars
  • Zurich
  • price 2 of 4
After all the shabby-chic, Zurich's hip and cool were eager to see something different, and the Raygrodski was welcomed with very open arms when it opened its doors. With its rather minimalistic interiors, Chesterfield sofas and enormous bar counter, it aims to be a classic cocktail bar with a huge selection of both classic and signature drinks.
