We love to go on alpventures. However, sometimes life can get hectic and you might not find the time to spend a whole weekend somewhere. Enter: camping in your hometown. Setting up your tent near where you live for one night allows you to see your own city from a different perspective, and it feels like a mini-vacation – but without the hassle of having to travel too far.
In Zurich, we’d highly recommend the Fischers Fritz camping site. It is located directly on the shore of the lake – stunning views are guaranteed! While it’s not the cheapest camping site, in our opinion, it’s one of the best.
There is an adorable little shop where you can buy anything you might need for your camping bliss – wood, sweets, drinks, vegetables and even locally caught fish to throw on the grill. For those of us who like to live glamorously, there is an amazing restaurant (Fischers Fritz) right next to the camping site.
If you wish, you don’t even have to bring your own tent. There are safari tents available (book in advance!) which allow you to sleep in a proper bed, all the while enjoying a unique camping experience. A bottle of champagne is included in the price – which definitely makes this alpventure the most glamorous yet!
