The Monocle Travel Guide Series – Zürich, Geneva + Basel
Founded in London in 2007, Monocle magazine is at home all over the world. Thanks to its network of international offices (London, New York, Toronto, Zurich, Istanbul, Tokyo, Singapore) and more than 30 correspondents worldwide, the team always delivers valuable first-hand information.
The Monocle Travel Guide Series is aimed at travellers who do not see themselves as tourists, but want to move around in a foreign city like locals. With an in-depth understanding of the dynamics of the metropolises, the Monocle team puts together the best insider addresses that are indispensable for a city trip off the beaten track.
In this guide we delve into three Swiss cities and uncover what makes them tick. We tour the spotless streets of Zürich, highlighting its distinguished commercial-gallery scene, glistening lake, inviting swimming spots and burgeoning set of top-notch restaurants and bars. Next, we head west to explore Geneva, with its luxury retailers, independent chocolatiers and curious collection of architecture. Finally, we finish with a jaunt around petite Basel and admire its robust offering of contemporary structures and world-class museums. The Monocle Travel Guide to Zürich, Geneva + Basel celebrates the richness of these three cities and dives beneath the surface to bring an unexpected mix of creativity, entrepreneurialism and design.
