    Zürich Hauptbahnhof - Treffpunkt in Zürich, Switzerland

    Zürich History Walk

    Zurich has enjoyed a rich history, from modest beginnings as a Celtic village to influential financial centre. Along the way it has been home to the Protestant Reformation, Russian Communism, and Dadaism.

    Join city historian Paul Doolan for a two hour stroll as he guides you along Roman ruins and medieval alleyways, literary cafes and grand hotels, while revealing the city’s secret history of Jewish pogroms and religious executions. Walk in the footsteps of Paracelsus, Casanova, Wagner, Albert Einstein, Rosa Luxemburg, and Lenin. Enjoy the art of Henry Moore, Nikki de St. Phalle, and Sigmar Polke. Be inspired by the city that inspired great writers like Goethe, Victor Hugo, James Joyce, Patricia Highsmith, Franz Kafka, Bertolt Brecht, and Thomas Mann.

    This event is a fundraiser for Democrats Abroad Switzerland, although it is open to non-US citizens as well.

    • Adults: CHF 10
    • Children: CHF 5

    Payment can be made ahead of time via bank transfer, PayPal, or Twint.

    RSVPing on this site does not reserve your spot on the tour; you must buy a ticket at Eventzilla.

    State Teams GOTV for the 2022 Midterms

    Join the Democrats Abroad State Teams to discuss GOTV plans for the 2022 Midterm elections. From determining which races need the most attention to addressing voter support needs, it's all hands on deck to ensure that we keep Congress and flip even more Senate seats.

    We'll also look at critical state races from the Gubernatorial to the State Legislatures with a view to key issues and voting rights. It's also a good to chance to look at the redistricting process and see where we will need to focus our efforts after the lines are redrawn.    

    In the meantime, join us on Slack to find out what the states are planning and get involved.

    Books & Cocktails Closing Event

    For our Books and Cocktails closing event, we offer you four recipes to choose from— two alcoholic options and two non-alcoholic!

And don't forget to RSVP below!

    NON-ALCOHOLIC

    Virgin Cucumber Gimlet

    Ingredients
    1.5 oz club soda
    4-5 slices of muddled cucumber 1 oz fresh lime juice

    Instructions
    Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Serve in a rocks glass over crushed ice. Garnish with a rolled cucumber slice. You can also add gin, if you like.

    Virgin Rasperry Kir

    I think this non-alcoholic kir is better like this than with white wine!

    1 1/2 oz. raspberry syrup
    sparkling cider or white grape juice lemon twist

    Pour syrup into a chilled wine glass. Add a half glass of juice or sparkling cider and stir gently. Twist lemon peel over the glass and drop it in.

    The kir comes from Canon Félix Kir (1876 - 1968), a French Catholic priest, resistance fighter and mayor of Dijon, who wanted to promote Burgundy products, in this case black currants (cassis).

    1 ripe plum, pitted, half diced and half sliced 5 large basil leaves
    2 oz. gin

    Seltzer, to top drink
    Lime wedge, for garnish
    Instructions

    In a cocktail shaker, muddle the diced plum and basil leaves. Fill the shaker with ice; add the gin & simple syrup. Place on the shaker lid and shake for 1 minute. Pour into a glass filled the sliced plum. Fill glass to the top with seltzer and garnish with lime wedge.

    Manhattan
