Today we make a beautiful family trip to enjoy some fantastic hiking. We will visit the amazing alpine resort of Stoos rising above Lake Lucerne.
Today, we take a look at Zurich from bird's eye for we make a hike onto Üetliberg hill which belongs to the Albis mountains. The main train station in the town will be our point of start. Here we get on a train and take ride to the hill.
Today, we take you once again to Zurich. This time we visit ETH Zurich university, one of world's leading universities in technology and nature sciences.
Several kilometers southwest of Zurich (ca 30) there is the sixth largest Swiss city of Winterhur. Heavily based on service and technology economy, the city inspired us to visit it.
Switzerland's largest city – Zurich – offers many beautiful places to make walks to and to spend free tim at. ZOO Zurich is one of such places. It houses over 375 animals species.
Near Engelberg town in central Switzerland, there are sevreal Alpine summits. We decided to climb up Brunni mountain to reach Brunnihütte (1860 m), a point of interest we intended to see. You can do the entire trail on foot. However, a cable car will save you considerable energy (but not money). Choosing a slower pace you will climb the entire mountain easily especially had you as good weather conditions as we did.
Streaming water, fresh fog of the falls, and climb up into the heart of the Rhine Falls. This is great experience for travellers, adventurers, and families with children.
Once we saw Geneva we move to another interesting Swiss city – Lucerne. It is situated in central Switzerland in the canton of the same name. About 300 thousand people live in the entire canton. So what are the most interesting places in the city on Lake Lucerne?
Last time, we made a brief note on the fact that Geneva is home to many international organizations and that there is the Palace of the Nations, the UN headquarters.
We remain in Europe this time. Our goal is Geneva which is nicknamed the capital of peace. Geneva is the second largest city after Zurich. It is known as the home of many international organizations (WHO, CERN, OSN etc.). One of its major landmarks is the famous Palace of the Nations (Palais des Nations). We will talk about it next time.
