Zurich: the destination everyone is talking about with lausanne

Tgv Lyria 1

In the Fall, Switzerland stands out as the slow life and stylish destination by excellence and the perfect place to relax, starting with a short trip on a TGV Lyria train, comfortably settled in your BUSINESS 1ST CLASS, STANDARD 1ST, or in STANDARD mode at very affordable prices.

Just allow yourself to be comfortably guided to the heart of Zurich, capital of underground chic, or towards endearing Lausanne. There’s a lot to be said about taking the train.

3 good reasons to go to zurich

Ultimate urban and architectural experience: diving into thermal baths on the rooftops of Zurich, perched way up on top of a former city brewery. The water between 35 and 41°C arrives directly from the “Aqui” source and provides incredible virtues thanks to its minerals. Even better if you can take advantage of the sunset: reserve a room at the B2, a terrific boutique hotel located in the same building as the spa.

The veggie movement was invented here with Hiltl, the first vegetarian restaurant in the world, created at the end of the 19th century, already qualified at the time as a place for “grass grazing”. The new gastronomy guard, obsessed with seeds and vegetables, is continually inspired by these pioneers of superfoods. In other words, real foodies cannot bypass this temple of vegetal gastronomy.

The museum to have visited at least once in a life time: the Kunsthaus, sheltering one of the best modern and contemporary collections in the world, from Picasso to Monet including Warhol, Hamilton or Cy Twombly. Another mandatory stop if you want to indulge in an arty orgy: the Fraümunster church, whose incredible stain glass windows were created by Chagall in person.

3 good reasons to go to lausanne

Sleeping in the middle of the forest, especially when the reddish overtones of the Fall foliage is at its peak or when the first snowflakes start to fall, is a dream come true. Half an hour from Lausanne, Les cabanes de Marie are a promise of a Swiss Robinson experience: sitting in a heated log cabin overlooking the treetops, Swiss cheese fondue by candlelight, baths heated with firewood, chilly dip in the river and saunas in the woods. Real slow life.

So just make an appointment and treat yourself to a Swiss escapade asap!

It’s the new hot artistic current! We have good news for amateurs of Raw Art. Few people are aware of this, but Jean Dubuffet owned an amazing collection, today displayed at the Château de Beaulieu, totally adorable. And to go all the way, you can also treat yourself to the super Sunday Brunch & Art formula at the not-to-be-missed Fondation de l'Hermitage where Braque and Magritte are displayed on the walls of a splendid homestead.
