11 Highlights of Zürich

11 Highlights of Zürich, Zurich, Switzerland (B)

I arrived in Zürich on a sunny, Autumn day. The breeze was cold but the city sparkled like diamonds. Zürich is situated on an expansive lake and nestled in amongst the mountains. In the far distance, over the lake, you can see the snowy peaks of the Alps. Here, it is neat and clean, as though a certain amount of money was especially put aside for polishing everything until you can see your face in it. This city has a unique mix of high-end designer fashion and luxury thermal baths, combined with hikes in the forest, free-range farms and mountain-bike tracks. 

Take the public ferry to soak in breathtaking mountain scenery. The short-round trip takes you past the world-famous Chocolate Factory, up to Thalwil and around to Zürichhorn, before heading back to the starting point at Zürich Bürkliplatz. 

During Autumn, the colourful leaves float down onto the green lawns at Zürichhorn and the scent of roasted chestnuts lingers in the air. On a sunny day, people can be seen splashing about in the water with their children and dogs. Nearby, you will find an interesting sculptural machine created by Swiss artist Jean Tinguely. ......
