Literature to get into mood for Zürich

by schmechi

Which literature you'd reccomend to read to get into mood for visiting Zürich? I'm talking about novels (not guides, reference books, etc.). I am seeking books from authors linked to Zürich or plots set into Zürich. For instance I'd recommend everybody to read Stefan Zweig's "World of Yesterday" before visiting Vienna...

Hi!Sorry I don't have an answer; I actually have a question for you because I was intrigued by your Forum question. I'm planning a 20 day trip June 2-21, arriving and deparingt from Zurich airport. Thinking Switzerland, Germany, Austria by train, so any suggestions would be helpful. I will read Zweig's "World of Yesterday," but I'm wondering if you have since read any other novels that might contribute to our June trip.
THANKS in advance for your time and expertise.

Crazy Cow and the accountant

by littlesam1

Its a generalization that accounts are uptight and boring people. Well this is a generalization and not necessarily a truth. After the other guy in the hat had posed with the cow at the Crazy Cow restaurant it was my turn. So here is how Larry, the accountant, posed with the cow. Notice any differences in our personalities from the pics?

Inaugurated in 1871, the Hauptbahnhof (main station) is one of the most beautiful train stations in Europe. The building has been extended and embellished over the years, becoming in the process an architectural jigsaw-puzzle of fascinating styles.

Elephant parade

by yumyum

Traditionally, when the Circus Knie is in town they send some elephants to the city center on a Saturday morning for a parade. This year I have seen it myself for the first time. They do a round trip starting at Bellevue where the circus is settled for one month during May/beginning of June. The parade only takes place when the weather is dry, there is usually an alternative date.

This year there were 5 elephants walking in a row and the one behind is holding onto the the one in front. A small carriage is following the parade drawn by mini-ponies and elephant droppings are picked up immediately.

So from Bellevue they make their way to Löwenplatz, where they get a healthy snack. I follwed them most of the way from there. The route from Löwenplatz is Usteristrasse - Bahnhofstrasse - Münzplatz - Bahnhofstrasse - Bürkliplatz and back to Bellevue across the Quaibrücke.

At the Münzplatz there is an old fountain where they stop for a drink.

The whole thing is good fun to watch and not too big a crowd is following them around including a lot of pushchairs. You can get really close to the elephants and even touch them if you are brave enough. The parade takes 90 minutes.

Heidi Weber House by Le Corbusier

When I first saw this house my first thought was: "I'm glad I don't have to pay their heating bills."

Perhaps that is why the "Private Museum" in the Heidi Weber House was closed, because it would have been too expensive to heat.

Le Corbusier, whose real name was Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, was born in the French-speaking part of Switzerland in 1887. He was famous especially in the 1920s as an architect, designer, urban planner, writer and painter. His work at the time must have seemed ultra-modern, futuristic, even progressive, since he claimed to be interested in improving the living conditions of the poor.

City planning to Le Corbusier consisted of tearing down historic city districts to make room for huge skyscrapers intertwined with huge freeways so the automobile could be the main form of transportation. In the second half of the twentieth century numerous cities throughout the world implemented his ideas, leading to the unlivable urban wastelands and high-rise slums that we all know today.

Nonetheless, I wouldn't mind having a look at the museum, so the next time I'm in Zürich I'll ride by on my bicycle again and see if it's open.
