Zurich, Switzerland (3) – Street Cruising (Day 2)

Our second and last day in Zurich was spent cruising the streets.  Since we booked only one day here, we made the most of the time.  Now that we were wide awake and clear-headed, the morning was spent retracing our steps from the night before.  This time we extended the river walk to Zurichsee.  In the the afternoon, we headed to The Dolder Grand Hotel.  A 3km uphill hike that gave us some pretty cool views of the city.

A five-star rating costs about $1000.00 per night, per person.  We didn’t go through the interior or exterior grounds to see if the price was justified.
