You guys know how much I love looking at interesting architecture so it wasn’t really a shock that most of the photos I took on our trip were of some really amazing buildings. Zurich is a city much like Melbourne which is a mix of very old and very new. It’s interesting seeing the two mix together in a city that is very proud of it’s heritage!
The morning we arrived in Zurich we were just in time for the sunrise and it made everything even more beautiful.
This was the view from the bottom of our hill up the the hotel the B2 Boutique, it’s the white building on the left in front of the big tower.
The tower up close:
There were some really cool statues on the building as well like this lady/dove and the stork below.
I want lamps like this in my dream house.
There were so many tiny cute lane ways around the city!
We explored down the lanes and they were full of tiny shops, apartments and mini restaurants.
Further out from Zurich things became more traditional and cottage-y. The border between Germany and Switzerland was adorable.
I love this style of building with flowers in every window.
This was our second hotel, it was the same style.
Everything inside was wooden and matched perfectly.
This was one of my favorite shots from Germany because it’s the perfect mix of old and new buildings and if you look closely, the second half of the old building is reflected perfectly in windows of the modern building.
Back in Zurich things were more modern but still with beautiful classical style.
There were a lot of details which were gilded too, the whole city shone in the sunlight.
I’ve just noticed that the truck in this shot has “Angst” written on it… I wonder if that’s what it’s delivering XD
So many steep hills and buildings with little window shutters!
This was a model of the huge actual church behind it.
I found myself constantly looking up to find more details.
There were little water fountains everywhere as well. I thought they were just fancy fountains but I saw a lot of people drinking from them and filling up water bottles.
And ending on something a little whimsical, here’s a gigantic bull painted blue on the second floor balcony of a hotel ^_^
