    End of may I attended a music concert at the AFG arena. Since we arrived early, parking in the underground garage was still possible. We planned to eat before the concert at the shopping mall. Because there's much too little restaurants, these were completely crowded with people. We place us a seat at an Italian at the bar. On the question of whether you could eat here too, he pointed at the food stalls outside the stadium, where you could buy sausages etc.! It remained so nothing else us as to cater for us there. But first you must buy an arena-card and then you can get something to eat themselves. More complicated are you not. It gets better: the arena card only can 10 - or 20 - load. But a drink costs CHF 5.50. You count on. It's called rip off I think. Sure, they say that you could pick up the remaining money in the output. But honestly, who's doing this at night to 23: 00 after a concert yet? So all planned calculus of the Organizer. Simply just bad.
