Zurich!

Next stop Zurich! The day after my lake cruise, yours was taken to Zurich and to Einsedeln, which is located off Zurich. So it's a 3++ train ride to Zurich, and another 1 hour or so to Einsedeln.

But 1st, the train will take you past Lausanne and as you know, Lausanne has a really gorgeous view of the mountains and the lake...
And they grow vines... apparently, it's a World Heritage Site and the train runs right through it! :)
Window to the world?
My castle is taller and higher up than yours...
And yes, finally in Zurich!
Zurich is mainly a protestant city. And also very Germanic. As it lies very close to the Swiss/German border, so you can guess where the influences come from, not to mention it's choice of language. Geneva being the other end of the Swiss side (yup, yours practically travelled from end to end!), so it's Frenchy influence...

Anyway, wish I could have taken the below as a night shot...


Peek-a-boo!



Holy Cow! Sacrad Bleu...
Standing tall...
One thing: You definately don't have to worry about time. Why? Need help? Just look up! There's a clock here...
And here...
And in case you miss those 2...
I couldn't quite make this out but it's interesting to say the least!
I wonder who got whose idea? Those 2 figurines actually hold ... So CS Lewis? Or...?
This painting shows who have stayed here... you will get to see more of this in Stein Am Rhein.

And the main train station from another angle.
Geneva has it's lakeside inhabitors... So too does Zurich!
As I was in Zurich only for a short while, with the main reason being in Einsedeln, this was all 1 could take. So next stop, Einsedeln...
