Eidberg Bienenhonig

In the idyllic Eidberg my bees live at 620 m. above sea level in a beehive which is located in the middle of intact nature. The location is characterized by mixed forest and natural meadows, which provides balanced food for my bees. I keep the bees according to organic and partly to Demeter guidelines. Since I only house a maximum of 7 colonies, the cost of certification would be much too high. You are welcome to visit my bees personally by appointment and get an impression on site. Eidberg Bienenhonig stands for love for the superorganism bee and for 100% natural quality honey. The sale takes place in my spare time and the honey is available as long as stock lasts.


Paper goods, zines, books, drawings from Zurich and elsewhere, much self-published and in small editions… Since 1998 Ingo Giezendanner, aka GRRRR, has been documenting the urban spaces in which he travels and lives. In addition to his hometown of Zurich, his travels have taken him to a wide variety of cities, from Santo Domingo and Tehran to New York, Karachi, Nairobi, Moscow and Tokyo. Wherever he travels, he captures his surroundings on location with pen on paper. His drawings have been featured in numerous magazines, books, and animated films, as well as in expansive installations and murals.

Hardi – Café by day, culture in the evening

Hardi welcomes its guests in the Hardquartier in a heartily uncomplicated way. The café was born out of the shared love for tasty and seasonal food of the two founders Alex and Simone. The Hardi menu offers fresh dishes and pastries for breakfast, lunch and brunch – handmade by Alex from local ingredients, of course. While the kitchen of the restaurant is a hive of activity, the dining room and the terrace form a green oasis that invite you to relax. In the evenings, the stage offers space for cultural events in the neighborhood – see you at Hardi.

We accept leu for hot drinks & house lemonades.

Artist Søren Berner (b. 1977 in Denmark) started incorporating bread in his work in 1999 while living in Holland. The bread is inspired by the Danish “rugbrød” (Dänisches Roggenbrot) a full-grain rye bread made with sourdough. Historically, rye bread was widely baked in the Swiss valleys where the grain was commonly grown. Sørenbrød uses organic ingredients and local production facilities in Zürich.

Sørenbrød is delivered by bike to select organic shops and fine food markets in Zürich every Tuesday . In addition, you can buy (with Leu) directly at the weekly market at Bürkliplatz on Tuesdays from 7am – 11am or just order it online – see contact info beneath – until sunday 4pm. One bread per customer.


Praxis Brenzikofer

We are human beings and gather experiences in being human throughout our lives. Crises are part of our life’s journey. Sometimes things get mixed up, relationships don’t work out, we don’t feel ourselves anymore, we suffer from fears, depressed moods, inner emptiness, feelings of meaninglessness, suicidal thoughts, sleep disorders, recurring memories of traumatic experiences or pains in the body. Crises manifest themselves in very different ways. What all crises have in common is that they want to be understood. As a federally recognized psychotherapist, I offer individual psychotherapy and coaching (psychological counseling) for adults as part of my practice.

Leu accepted as of now, for everything, 100% or partial payment.
