The land of fine cheeses, chocolate and watches

As I have written before, I signed up for a Studi-Tour by Studentenwerk to Zürich and Lucerne in Switzerland. But that was quite ages ago, and you can imagine how impatiently I was waiting for the day of the trip to come. And it finally did come! So last Saturday I visited two of the most beautiful cities not only in Switzerland, but I’d dare say in the whole world. Let me share my experience with you.

The trip was really nice. The only thing I didn’t like was the weather. It was really chilly. In addition, it was really cloudy, so we weren’t able to see the Alps. But as Freiburg is so conveniently situated (France and Switzerland are just an hour away!) I think I will still get a chance to see the mountains. It was also quite chilly but I should have put on appropriate clothes 🙂

Have a look at how beautiful Zürich is!

It’s even more beautiful when you get a chance to enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city:

The famous Bahnhofstasse, one of the most expensive streets in the world. I wish I had been able to do some (actually,a lot!) of shopping there 😦

Lucerne was even more amazing. Again, had the weather been better, we would have been able to adore this city even more. But still, Lucerne seems to be great in any weather.

That’s Lucerne’s famous Löwendenkmal:

As you can see, my Saturday was truly wonderful. So if you have a chance to go to Switzerland, don’t miss it! It’s an adorably picturesque country. And I also want to say thank you to the people who organized the trip! I am sure that this is not the only Studi-Tour I’m participating in!

  1. Auch ich schlenderte in meiner „Pause“ noch ein bisschen durch die Bahnhofstraße von Zürich. Es ist wirklich enorm, welche Summen manche Leute für Kleider oder Uhren bezahlen können.
    Ein Beispiel: Die Rolex Day-Date 18946, die ich in einem Schaufenster entdeckte, kostet 72.000,00 €.
    Auch mein Cappuccino, den ich in einem Café in einer kleinen abgelegenen Gasse trank, kostete immerhin 6,50 CHF!
    Aber dennoch: Zürich und Luzern sind immer eine Reise wert – auch bei etwas schlechterem Wetter!
