Swiss Bliss Day 11 (Part 2)

We haven’t even walked halfway down the famous Bahnhofstrasse when we headed to the edge of the Limmat River. We were heading to check out the Fraumünsterkirche. Unfortunately, someone was having their wedding there and the place was closed for the day.

The city of Zurich is well connected with trams, buses and even river boats. At least there will not be any jams on the river! The river boats are designed in such a way that they are able to traverse below the bridges that are built across the river.

Why are they so low?

If you’re a fan of the French macaroons, then you must give the Swiss version a try. They are called Luxemburgerli, a smaller and taste almost as sweet as their bigger sibling. The place to get them is at Confiserie Sprüngli.

Look at the colours!

We were there on a Sunday, so while we were almost at the end of the Bahnhofstrasse, we came to Bürkliplatz. They were having a flea market and the place was packed full of people selling their wares. You could pick up anything you want, from old records to things fashioned out of metal. Talk about eccentric stuffs, this place has it all.
