Swiss urban swimming
To celebrate the release of our new book, “Swim & Sun: A Monocle Guide”, we spend the day at swim club Flussbad Oberer Letten in Zürich. Bathers of every age come here to strip off and feel the freedom of the water in the river Limmat. Join us. Our latest book is available at The Monocle Shop.
Monocle preview: October issue, 2023
Monocle’s bumper October issue gives you plenty of bang for your buck. Our new Retail Awards honour the shopkeepers bringing refined and original ideas to the world’s high streets and out autumn Style Directory will ensure that you look the part when you hit the town. Elsewhere, we meet Milan’s elegantly dressed older women, question the relevance of the UN and the mayor of Dallas tells us how the city is staying safe. Order your copy today.
The naked truth
Residents of Munich know how to dress impeccably – but some also know how to get undressed, outdoors and in the middle of the city. Monocle Films meets members of the German Association for Free Body Culture who bare it all.
Made in Bavaria
Bavaria’s rich manufacturing heritage shows that there is more to the region than the Alps, sausages and beer. Monocle Films takes a tour behind the scenes of renowned art materials manufacturers Faber-Castell, Gmund Papier mill and Theresienthal glassmakers to explore how traditional ways of making have endured thanks to a legacy of familial entrepreneurship.
