There are many ways to enjoy spring in Zurich; from drinks in the sun, to leisurly afternoons spent playing boule or by the water.
I recently rediscovered the joys of analog photography. Here are some impressions from Zurich through my Olympus XA.
Join me on a visit to the greenhouses at the Botanical Garden in Zurich.
Zurich has a great many things to offer during the colder months. Here are ten things I like to do in Zurich in winter.
A walk through Zurich’s old botanical garden. I just love how nature transforms throughout the year and how plants are a thing of beauty even in the midst of winter.
Red, gold, faded greens and lots of yellow – the end autumn brings out the most beautiful colours. What a grand finale before we enter that monochromatic season called winter. Find some pictures in the post and a playlist with my personal late-autumn soundtrack on Spotify.
