Switzerland's trendiest neighborhood

(Map by Newhouse Design)

Kreis 4, Zürich

This red-light district has been transformed into the city's style hub. Boutique Saus&Braus; sells the work of Swiss designers like Alma Rumpke, who turns bicycle tubes into belts (sausbraus.ch). Up-and-coming artists exhibit their work at Message Salon Downtown's openings (likeyou.com/messagesalon). By day, Forum is a favorite lunch spot; on Friday and Saturday nights, DJs transform the space with hip-hop, electronica, and blues (forumzh.ch).
