Every summer again, since 1998, I take a great delight in running my ice cream stand.
All the sparkling children’s faces, the adult sweet tooths and the ice cream aficionados from all around the world making a stop at my stall brighten up each and every day of mine. Like the Beatles said, „Happiness is a cold ice cream scoop“. And what a pleasure for me to be able to serve some happiness to my customers.
Already in the deep of winter I long for the first few warm days of the year.
Aching for these lovely hours when I’ll be at this beautiful spot right at the lakeside again selling my delicious ice cream.
See you there.

The quaint Hafen Riesbach can be reached easily from everywhere and quite quickly. It takes a quarter-hour stroll from Bellevue along the lake’s boardwalk. As for public transport you take tram No.2 or No.4 or bus No. 33 to “Höschgasse”, or the bus lines 912 or 916 (departing from Bellevue) to the stop “Elektrowatt”.
In close proximity of Hafen Riesbach you’ll also find the worth seeing Museum Bellerive, the Corbusier house, the Chinese Garden, a spacious children’s playground next to Blatterwiese and lots of spots to have a bath in the lake or where you can enjoy the beauty of the lake of Zurich.

For my customers the best ice cream far and wide goes by the name of: Amore Mio.
Day in, day out, for almost 20 years now, Paulo Palumbo creates this unique and delicious ice cream out of fresh organic milk from a neighborly farm in the Zurich lowlands, which he then gently pasteurizes an immediately processes into his fantastic ice cream.
It’s not only this very special ice cream I dearly love but also all my visits at Paulo’s and our mutual philosophizing about the art of making outstanding ice cream.
That’s true love – or yes, exactly:
A small animal at their choice adorns the ice cream of our little guests.
A small amount of another flavour delight our taller guests.
