science fac­ul­ties now oc­cupy the re­mod­elled Toni dairy – once Europe’s largest milkpro­cess­ing fa­cil­ity – and the Prime Tower (Hard­strasse 201, Zurich; prime­tower.ch/en) is Switzer­land’s tallest sky­scraper with a se­lec­tion of bars and restau­rants in­clud­ing Clouds (clouds.ch) on the 35th floor.

Frau Gerold’s Garten (Gerold­strasse 23/23a, Zürich; fraugerold.ch) started as a beer gar­den but mor­phed into a lo­cal haunt with ca­sual places to drink and dine while Im Viadukt (Viaduk­t­strasse, Zürich; im-viadukt.ch) , which was built un­der the rail­way arches, has bou­tiques and gal­leries as well as a Mar­ket Hall that’s home to about 20 food pro­duc­ers. In a city staked with re­gal old­world ho­tels – the fairy­tale Dolder Grand (Kurhausstrasse 65, Zürich; he­do­ld­er­grand.com) is an icon – there are still new ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions pop­ping up. The Kameha Grand Zurich (Du­faux-Strasse 1, Glattpark; kame­ha­grand zuerich.com) opened on March 1, the Dorint Air­port Ho­tel Zurich (Ri­ethof­s­trasse 40, Op­fikon-Glat­tbrugg; hote­lair­port-zuerich.dorint.com/en) and Sher­a­ton Zurich Ho­tel (Pf­in­gst­wei­d­strasse 100, Zurich; sher­a­tonzurich­ho­tel.com/en) were un­veiled in 2014.

And bou­tique Ho­tel City Zurich (Löwen­strasse 34, Zurich; hotel­city.ch) is back in busi­ness af­ter un­der­go­ing a seven-month ren­o­va­tion.
