Zurich, Quite a Pretty Little City

Welcome to beautiful Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city. Even though I only experience about 24 hours of this beautiful spot, I’d jump at the opportunity to go back.

The Limmat River carves its way through town, an outflow from Lake Zurich.

Many boats and swans bob about in the water, feeling as close to a metropolitan getaway as it possibly can. Zurich, Switzerland / for the love of nikeZurich, Switzerland / for the love of nikeZurich, Switzerland / for the love of nikeZurich, Switzerland / for the love of nike

Facts about Zurich: 

  • German is the official language.
  • Zurich is the birthplace of Dadaism, an art movement during the 20th century, rejecting logic and embracing the nonsensical.
  • Many of Zurich’s fountains contain drinkable water. (The Swiss are very proud of their clean water–as they have every right to be!)
  • It is one of the most expensive cities, yet those who call it home are among the happiest in the world.
  • The first known settlers established their community over 5,000 years ago.
  • Zurich is home to the No Show Museum, dedicated to nothing. Strange, yes–and thoroughly thought provoking.

Get a load of that clock on St. Peter’s Church because it’s the largest in all of Europe. 

Don’t forget to have a pot of Swedish fondue!
