Mokeke Travel 7: Zurich

MokekeTravel7_

Grüezi metenand! (this means “hello together” in Swiss German ^^)

In June I was travelling with my purple friend called Gabu. I remember, that it wasn’t easy for us to find the right destination because we didn’t want to go very far away. I checked out the offers in the Swiss Coupon Pass to get some ideas. The Swiss Coupon Pass is a booklet, which contains a lot of different discount coupons on food, sightseeing tours or the entrance fees to touristic attractions in Switzerland (The book is quite expensive although). My granny used it, while she was in Zermatt and gave it to us before she went back to Japan. I suddenly found a city tour in Zurich and thought that this is going to be the seventh Mokeke Travel! I am often in Zurich, mainly for shopping reasons or when I meet my friends, but I don’t know more about this city. It felt a bit strange for me to make a sightseeing tour in my home country – normally I do that abroad *lol*. However, we got 50% discount on the ticket and, in addition, it is always good to learn more about your own country right?

So we had a bus tour (with lots of other tourists) trough Zurich city. While our guide was explaining us the buildings and spots in Zurich, the bus driver took us to different places like the Bahnhofstrasse (Zurich’s main downtown street & exclusive shopping avenue), the National Museum and other buildings that I can’t remember the names anymore xD We had a short picture stop at Lake Zurich and we could enjoy a ride with the cog-wheel railway (Dolderbahn) too. We could have a look at the noble five-star Grand Hotel Dolder and the guide showed us other highlights like the University and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich) and the famous Kunsthaus art museum in Zurich. Our last stop was in the Old Town, where we went into the Fraumünster Church to admire the magnificent stained glass windows by Marc Chagall.

Here are some more highlights of Zurich:
