Nobody knows the SWISS destinations better than our staff. A restaurant that is not listed in every travel guide, an original bar, a charming café, or great tours with spectacular lookout points. Let our travel professionals inspire you with their tips.

The «eleven» is my favourite restaurant in Lisbon. The restaurant has a modern, minimalistic interior and fabulous views of the city. German chef Joachim Koerper provides international dishes with a touch of Portugal. For a slow-paced, pleasant and enjoyable evening rather than a quick bite to eat.

If you're in Lisbon and want to enjoy a pleasant drink while soaking up a breathtaking view of the entire city, I can certainly recommend the PARK bar. It's somewhat tucked away, but still very central. The name says it all, because this bar can only be reached via a car park lift. There is no sign or clue to let people know what they can expect at the top – which is a hip and tastefully designed rooftop bar that transforms into a dance venue as the evening progresses. As they don't take reservations, it is worth getting here early if you want to grab one of the highly sought-after seats. An excellent insider tip – guaranteed!

The Unik Beach Lounge is located south of Lisbon on the Praia da Mata beach in Almada. There’s no better place to rest after a long sightseeing tour in the city. Apart from the lovely view onto the sea, the Unik Beach Lounge offers great drinks and freshly prepared local dishes. It’s perfect for relaxing and unwinding.

My highlight in Lisbon is Mercado 31 Janeiro. It's almost impossible to get enough of the fresh fruit, crisp vegetables, fish and meat available in the hall. And the food served in the market restaurant is fabulous! Book a table in plenty of time if you want lunch. Bom apetite!

A cost-conscious place to stay that I recommend in Lisbon is the Shiado Hostel in the centre of the Chiado. It has been designed and decorated by artists and reflects the joie de vivre and creative flair of the city. There are fantastic shops and small artists' boutiques on every street corner in Chiado. For those looking to take something home with them, the tiny, old-fashioned tins of fish from the Conserveira de Lisboa, a long-established company renowned for its 1930s style, are a refreshing alternative to port.
