SPRECHEN SIE ENGLISCH

We arrived in Zurich, Switzerland on Sunday afternoon. I know we’ve only been here for  a very short time, but we have fallen in love with this city.

last night we went to Prime Tower for dinner, as recommended by a friendly hotel staff member. Prime Tower is the tallest building in Zurich, although it is only 36 floors. It was a short walk from our hotel, and the weather was fine. The Clouds bar is on the top floor with a great view of the city, and the beautiful green hills in the background. Our dinner was just perfect – really really good food, and good espresso too.

Our hotel is pretty fun – its in Zurich West, which is the new part of town, lots of new buildings, design shops and interesting cafes. There are quirky little things everywhere. Eg. These cheeky signs in the lifts:

They also have bikes, which we used today to explore:

Riding along the river – the water is so clear you can see the bottom

Having a swing – this park was so nice, the locals were playing giant chess and boules.

Stop for lunch – we tried this local fave – bratwurst with hot mustard and a rustic bread roll. you eat the bratwurst separately (not in the roll). Delish

Frau Gerolds Garten – a really hip spot right on the train line. This yard of old shipping containers has been made into a magical garden with one of a kind local designer shops and also a bar. we stopped for a pre dinner drink.

Theres also the Freitag (popular bags made from recycled plastic) Flagship store which is very high! There is an observation deck on the very top for train spotting.
