W ant to make a getaway during spring, you can’t choose between a city-trip weekend or a short stay in nature? So I advise you to visit Zurich, it is a paradise during springtime with a lot of places to see. Here is what you can do in this fascinating city during the vernal season.
There are many travelers who have discovered, in less than a day, the most beautiful places of Zurich in the spring, starting with Lake Zurich; located in the southeast of the city and in the mouth of the Linth River. It is popular because of the origin of its water coming from the Tödi Massif Glaciers, a very popular and quite place to enjoy a picnic or a walk.
The old town of Zurich, which is divided into two parts, on both sides of the Limmat River, is a real gem. On the left bank side, you have to start with the Lindenhof esplanade, an over-elevated historic square planted with linden trees. From there you will enjoy a beautiful view of the Limmat and the other side of the city.
Below is one of the prettiest districts of Zurich; the Schipfe, with small medieval streets that go down to the edge of the river. You can find restaurants everywhere with marvelous terraces to enjoy sitting outside during the nice weather during spring. You can also take pleasure in shopping in the various traditional boutiques.
Zurich West is the old industrial area of the city, now a hotbed of alternative culture, with disused buildings that have been renovated and invested by trendy restaurants, art galleries and original bars.
