KASHEME - LIVING ROOM | RECORD STORE | STUDIO

Kasheme stands for conscious mutual listening, for music, for the world - but also for the universe, Mother Earth and all her creatures. We see music as a healing power and value it as a spiritual discipline. Our goal is to connect people from different cultures and backgrounds with music that is rooted in different traditions. Thus in an inviting open culture of dialogue, exchange and togetherness. Through music we want to create spaces of possibilities, inspiration and community. A unique experience of passion, hospitality and quality in the choice of music. We call it reciprocity - we must give to survive. „Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something“ – Gil Scott Heron

Sledging on Üetliberg: Fun on skids on Zurich's local mountain

Sledging on Üetliberg: Fun on skids on Zurich's local mountain

Zurich's favourite sledging run is located near the city on Zurich's local mountain Uetliberg.

The start of the route is located at weThe SZU train station is a few metres from the Uetliberg terminus. The first few metres are rather flat, but the slope is not to be underestimated: Soon the track becomes steeper and faster. Through the middle of the forest, surrounded by a beautiful landscape, you descend to the city of Triemli, where public transport is available. The most beautiful stretch is when it's snowing and all the sounds are swallowed up by the snow.

Café Schlauch - With a long tradition Biologically and seasonally appropriate

Café Schlauch - With a long tradition Biologically and seasonally appropriate

The Cafe Schlauch in the heart of Zurich, very close to the Grossmünster, offers original daily menus in a biologically dynamic sense.

Franz Schnepf came to Switzerland from Meran in 1904 at the age of 15. Due to the crisis, the trained carpenter tried his hand at teaching dance. In 1920 Franz Schnepf opened a well attended dance school in the former "Rosenegg". In 1928, the young innkeeper gave up the dance school and built over the magnificent "Chriesigarten", which adjoined the upper fences. Zurich's only billiard hall with a life pool was built. Here the red and white balls are still played with targeted shots on the green field.

Café Schlauch is only 500 metres on foot from Hotel Alexander in Zurich's old town.
