The urge for sunlight

As soon as the sun comes out a little more often, the promenades, parks and squares of the country fill up with people again. Whether you indulge in strolling, discover something or just want to relax, the warm summer sun makes us happy, gives us energy and lets us quickly forget the cold, wet winter days.

Alternative to soft drinks & Co.

In summer it is particularly important to drink enough, ideally water of course. But we all like to treat ourselves to a sweet refreshment while on the go. In addition to well-known soft drinks, this year you can also enjoy delicious ones Chilled coffees refresh.

Starbucks Chilled Coffee

The chilled, ready-to-drink pleasure from Starbucks is now available in retail outlets in the variants Caffe Latte, Cappuccino, Caramel Macchiato and Skinny Latte.

The coffee break tastes even better here

Summer is also the time of excursions and city trips. Under the motto “Starbucks touring Switzerland” Swiss influencers told us something about their favorite places for a well-deserved coffee break.

In this first part of our three-part series, you will find out where in Thun, Ascona and Zurich you can escape the city noise and enjoy a quiet minute. So if you are still looking for ideas, today we will show you three particularly recommended excursion destinations.

Lake promenade in Ascona

In Ascona, which is also known as the pearl on Lake Maggiore, you can expect a mild climate, brightly painted houses and Mediterranean flair! The charming old town streets of the former fishing village with the historic village center are worth a visit alone! If you are in Ascona on a beautiful early summer’s day, you should definitely not miss the wonderful lake promenade, which is a wonderful place to linger. The car-free promenade is an ideal place to fully enjoy the coffee break.

Town hall square in Thun

On the deep blue Lake Thun, the “gateway to the Bernese Oberland” surrounds the Aare and has a lot to offer for day trippers! The historic center of Thun, the town hall square, is surrounded by venerable buildings and gives the old town, where (hopefully soon again) various celebrations and concerts take place, a very special charm. Right next to it, Thun Castle sits enthroned on a hill and offers a great view of the Alps when the weather is clear. It is the perfect place to let your eyes wander and treat yourself to a refreshing chilled coffee.

Villa Patumbah in Zurich

Maria Wilhelm, @mariaekena

Even in Zurich there are still insider tips! For example the Villa Patumbah on the sun-drenched hillside location in Zurich-Riesbach. The stately property combines various stylistic elements from the Gothic, Renaissance and Rococo periods and is surrounded by a magnificent park, which has been open to the public since its restoration in 2013. A great place away from the hustle and bustle of the big city to enjoy a chilled pick-me-up in the warm summer sun.
