A Sunny Day in Zürich

Thursday, May 4, 2017

We said goodbye to our friends and awesome Swiss hosts, Zhanna and Gary, in Lauterbrunnen, and continued on to Zürich, our first big city and last stop in Switzerland. It was exciting to be in a big European city, even if we were paying $8 for a latte (at least it was in a beautiful cafe that made us feel fancy). We had just one day in the city, and did a free walking tour, which are available in most big cities around the world and an awesome way to get a feel for a new city and see the major attractions in just a couple hours. The city was incredibly clean and felt very sophisticated and nice.

One of the simple highlights of the day was getting pasta and salad from a deli, finding a bench by the Limmat River, and enjoying the food and sunshine amid locals on their lunch breaks.

Next stop: Germany!

  1. Judging from your photos, despite being Switzerland's business capital, Zurich seems to retain its small city atmosphere. I can imagine it must have been very pleasant walking around the city on a sunny day!

    1. Yes, that's a good way of putting it! Not sure if we'd spend a bunch of time here, but we really enjoyed our day in Zurich.

  2. Wow, these images from Zurich are really beautiful! Sometimes the sun makes for crap images, as there are too many harsh shadows and highlights around -- but you did amazing!

    1. Ha, thanks! I know what you mean... there are times when the sun is overhead and we don't even bother taking the camera.

  3. Pictures are amazing. As an traveler, I can understand how much it is interesting to explore new things in your trip and make your day perfect with your partner. Zurich is nice place to visit.

  4. Beautiful architecture - one thing I love about looking at photos of European towns and cities (or indeed any town or city around the world) is beautiful architecture from different eras; past and present, although I do prefer older style buildings to newer ones, living in a city that has a mix of both old and new, from the Victorian period to the present day. You can see this on my blogsite, which shows photos I've taken in and around Auckland, New Zealand.
