Zurich, Switzerland (2) – Evening Stroll (Day 1)

To be in sync with the time zone, we headed out for a walk to keep ourselves from falling asleep.  A stroll to Old Town starting from the Zurich HB, along the Limmat River and back to our hotel, 25Hour Hotel Langstrasse.

Corner of Bahnhofpl and Neumuhlequai.  Across the Bahnhofbrucke from Zurich HB.

Crossing the Limmat River and looking back at where we walked along the right.

 

 

I don’t know if this is some form of exercise for these two men by challenging the rushing water going upstream.

Heading back to the hotel, we came across a great lookout point in Lindenhof Park, located on the west side of the river.   A view of the path where we started our journey.   Zentralbibliothek stands out in the spotlight
