Hello friends, how are you? I hope you had a lovely week! I’m back today with another travelling post, and taking you someplace we’ve never been before together…on a day with me in Zurich, Switzerland!
Just to give you some basic facts, we’re this summer 2016, and I went with my family on a road trip to Switzerland and Italy. We managed to see lots of things, but in the matter of just one day, we arrived and left Zurich. It was a very cloudy, and kind of rainy day so I apologize for the kind of grey pictures. Other than that, the city is very beautiful, and definitely worth stopping by.
WELCOME TO ZURICH🌄
We arrived in the morning to the city, which didn’t surprise me so much by its architecture. It’s very much like in Germany, and kind of in Alsace as well, so I wasn’t too shocked or astonished by it, but rather reminded of how simple yet beautiful it looks.
The Limmat is the river crossing the city of Zurich, before throwing itself in the Lake Zurich. I bet it must be lovely to walk along it when it’s sunny, unfortunately we didn’t have this chance, but we still managed to have some nice shots of the views.
Zurich is made of paved streets, ups and downs, and colorful houses unfortunately a bit shaded by the rain, but still cute, if you ask me.
Like the lovely tourists we are -well, strike that. Like the crazy planners we are, obviously, we had decided beforehand of what we wanted to see, where we wanted to go, and what we wanted to do in the short time we had at hand….
There’s the Grossmünster, a cathedral dated from the XIIe century. Kind of huge and impressive, if you ask me, and if you dare look back, well… it’s always there, peeking behind the houses.
There’s Fraumünster as well -fun fact: Frau means, Lady, in German – a church from the 11th century, looking all kinds of beautiful, if you ask me.
And obviously, we had to stop by the lake. I wish we had a better view, and kind of a better weather, but with the seagulls, we had nice companions.
The rain caught us in the early afternoon. Wet and kind of shivering in the middle of August, we still managed to end our tour of the city, before heading back into the car, and drive away to our next destination.
