“Breakfast at the gorgeous Metropol Restaurant. Then, after taking in some of the beautiful architecture in the city, make your way to a unique private watchmaker’s tour on the exclusive Bahnhofstrasse and learn about the intricacies behind this traditional Swiss trade. Afterwards, enjoy some window shopping and get some top styling tips from one of our Zurich-based fashion and image stylists. Stop off for lunch at Dolder Grand’s Restaurant and take in the breathtaking views of the lake and the city from this fascinating 19th century building. After lunch, take a professionally guided Meditation Walk in the surrounding woodland before enjoying your well-deserved Hydraheaven Treatment, which includes a massage and floatation experience in Dolder Grand’s Spa. After a refreshing nap, head to Terasse (The Terrace House) for aperitifs before sumptuous fine dining at Chez Fritz right next to the Lake. Finish off the night with drinks at the elite Jade Nightclub.

If you have the energy on the second day, we recommend a private half-day hiking tour of Mount Uetliberg with a trek through the magical forest. If you’re less keen on hiking but love nature, head instead for the Tree Museum of Zurich, an arresting contemporary homage to nearly 2,000 species of tree. From there, head for brunch at the cool Moroccan-inspired Maison Blunt with its funky clientele and low seating, and if you can tear yourself away from your shisha pipe, make your way to The Museum for Modern Art in Zurich for a private tour on Dada; this is the city of the eclectic art movement after all! Treat yourself to an exquisite late lunch at Brasserie Seefeld and then head back to your suite for some R&R.
