Zurich – September 2017

Since we were flying into Zurich to start our 3 week trip of Alsace & Burgundy we decided to spend three days visiting this city. We stayed in an Airbnb apartment that was not too far from the main train station. Its location was on the 2nd floor of the building. This superhost rated appartement was very clean and modern. We did not get to meet the hostess, Christine, but she was always responding promptly to our messages and the self-serve check-in was very easy to do. Before leaving Canada as we were looking for accommodations in Zurich it became apparent that this was not a cheap city to visit, so we were happy to have found this place in a good location for a decent price. Below is a photo that was taken on the little patio of the apartment. Always nice when these apartments the option of a patio included.

P1040963Did you happen to notice a little glimpse of the “p’tite nappe champêtre”?

This city is super clean. One of the things that struck us after three days of walking exploring the city was that we did not see one homeless person on the streets?? We have not seen this before in our travels for a city of this size.

Strolling along the waterfront promenade…with lots of cafés& bars. Great way to spend an afternoon.

Of course, you do not go to Zurich without having a raclette or fondue. We opted for a fondue this time.  We ended up at a recommended restaurant “Raclette Stube“.  It was great. The cheese fondue is served with little boiled potatoes, bread and pickles. It is, however, that scrumptious gruyère cheese that will forever stay in our memory. Kostlich!

Restaurant, Raclette Stube.


Limmat River runs though the city
Veltlimer Keller High end carved wood restaurant, opened in 1551, a former winery now serving local cuisine.


We loved this promenade, my kind of city.

After spending three days in Zurich I think we would best describe it as a very scenic city, very clean, safe and affluent. It’s also apparent that it is the financial hub of this country. We hope to come and stay longer someday.

Widerluege Zurich😊
