    Stadt Rundfahrt

    Sightseeing Train

    Favorite thing: You can have a City Tour with the "Classic Trolley" (styled on those of yesteryear) to discover Zurich.
    Because the audio taped commentary is available in 8 languages, you will have a far more interesting and comprehensive report solely in the language of your choice.
    The tour lasts 2 hours and includes the shopping and financial center, the old town and the main churches

    Favorite thing: What is clearly evedent in Zurich is that for first timer, you can hardly miss your direction with a map. The roads are not in networks, because of the mountains, and there are clear and explicit sign posts like this in the pics.

    Little Big City

    Z��rich

    Favorite thing: We strolled around the narrow streets of Zürich for hours, visited the impressive churches from the inside and the outside, and enjoyed a nice walk along Lake Zürich.

    I never expected Zürich to be such a pleasant city - so this really was a nice surprise for me!
    .

    Fondest memory: Meeting Elisabeth (rebibi), Remo and Sonja (yumyum)!

    Fountain

    Favorite thing: On both sides of the river, there are so many tiny little alley ways, that open up into beautiful squares. You will be amazed at the beautiful buildings.

    I loved this little square with its fountain.

    visit the Old Town.

    Fondest memory: The Old Town situated across the river (from the train station side) is filled with many 'little' shops. I'd recommend that you take a stroll along the riverfront and just soak in the old world charms of that area. And spend time admiring the old guild houses along the river too. Very nice!

    explore the largest city in...

    take your liberties..

    Favorite thing: explore the largest city in Switzerland. Zurich aptly promoting itself as the ‘little big city’ with it's historic centre compact enough to be explored on foot.

    Fondest memory: The citizens enjoy a high standard of living, and this is evident in the many fashionable and enjoyable bars, cafés and restaurants that fill the Old Town. The ambience is heightened by the large swathes on either side of the River Limmat that are pedestrian-only areas. But for those who find the comfortable burgher lifestyle a little too tame, there are always alternative places to seek out. This is, after all, the city that saw the birth of the artistic movement of Dadaism – the antithesis of conformity.

    Churchill Balcony

    Me and Corrie at Churchill Balcony

    Favorite thing: Corrie and I at the guilded gates beneath the balcony where Winston Churchill gave his Europe Arise speech 19th September 1946. Some post war pep talk apparently.
