Allianz Cinema Zürich

Summer evenings in Zurich are enlivened with a season of films shown at an outdoor cinema in a lovely lakeside setting. Top movies, from classics to cult, are shown, attracting film buffs and families alike for an evening under the stars. Cinema goers can also grab a bite to eat at one of the lakeshore restaurants. Showings may be cancelled in the event of very bad weather, but light rain is no deterrent so an umbrella is often a wise accessory. The programme is published in advance of the season.

Composed of eight adjoining medieval houses, the Widder Hotel is named after a 13th-century Augustinian monastery that used to exist here. The 35 individually decorated rooms and 14 suites (four with private roof terraces) all combine the old and new, with features including 17th-century frescoes and old wooden floors. The Widder Bar has long been an important jazz venue - its 'Library of Spirits' offers several hundred single-malt whiskies.
