I was in Zürich two years ago for a weekend. So far, Zürich is my favorite European city.

Zurich 1

Zurich 2

In my eyes, lake Zürich makes this city very special. Zürich is at the northwest tip of lake Zürich and you can take a short or a long boat trip on the lake from Burkliplatz, which is just in the center of the city. The water is very clean and there are many public bath areas along the shore. The view from the boat is so amazing that you may forget you are still in a metropolis.

Zurich 3

This lovely Polybahn takes you to the campus of the very famous ETH university, which is probably the best technical university in European (Perhaps even better than RWTH and TUM in Germany).

Zurich 4 Polybahn

This is the view from the terrace of the main building of ETH.

Zurich 5

Of course you shouldn’t miss FIFA when you are already in Zurich.

Zurich 6 FIFA

Another tip: there is a toy museum, which is quite small but full of lovely different dollhouses. ( I forget the address, but you can find it in the city guide. )

Zurich 7

A watch and clock shop

Zurich 8

At last, the yummy cakes of the Sprüngli café on Paradeplatz 😀
