Herzblut at the Beauty DIY – Zürich, Switzerland

The Beauty is our winter spot. Rough, cold and dusty. Sketchy trannies and more than often some gravel in the corners. It’s located in a wonderful squat called “Autnomous Beauty Salon” in Zurich. We built it after we finished the Beast as a nice winter option, but it came out bitchin’. Long and hard skate sessions are always on, and we’re really proud of the many visitors we’ve already had in these past two years. But the Beauty and the whole squat will be demolished at the end of the year, which sucks, because there are so many good punk & metal shows, an open kitchen, a bike workshop, screen-printing workshop and a gratis-shop.

The Herzblut Skateboards guys come down from the mountains once in a while to skate with us, and it’s always a sick session going on. They really put so much of their heart into skateboarding – it’s a pleasure to have them around.
