There's something undeniably magical about slowing down and immersing yourself in nature in a world that can often feel fast-paced and disconnected. Picnics are the perfect opportunity to do just that. They are a timeless tradition that combines the beauty of the outdoors with the pleasures of good food and good company. Whether you're planning a romantic rendezvous, a family get-together or simply looking for some solace in the great outdoors, a picnic is a wonderful way to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.


Where to go

One of the most alluring aspects of picnicking is being out in nature. It doesn't have to be very far or complicated - pack a few snacks and head to the park closest to you. Here in Zurich, we love to throw down a blanket in one of the many parks. Or we head to a badi for an idyllic picnic by the lake or the Limmat. 


What to bring

Remember to pack a selection of items that will make your picnic enjoyable and comfortable when preparing for a picnic. However, you don't have to bring a lot to have a good time. Here are some ideas of what to bring for your next picnic: a cute blanket to sit on comfortably, a reusable water bottle to make sure you stay hydrated, napkins to wipe your hands or clean up any spills and maybe some fun games to keep you entertained. Stuff everything in your fave bag and you are good to go!
