Old Town Zurich | Travel Switzerland

Our final destination in Switzerland was Zurich.  We stayed in the city for 2 days and had enough time to explore Old Town Zurich along River Limmat and also attend the wedding we were in town for.  There were lots of random places to eat and hang out in town and you could find locals sunbathing and swimming in the river.  The architecture was beautiful!  As you can see from the photos below, we had an amazing view from our hotel room.  A quick side note / tip: be prepared to spend some money when you’re in Zurich… or any part of Switzerland for that matter.  To give you a point of reference, a Happy Meal from McDonalds costed 7.40 USD.

We had a corner room at the Marriott that was overlooking River Limmat going through Zurich from both sides.

A random fountain in Zurich. Anyone know the name of it? I also learned an interesting fact while searching for the name of this fountain.  There are approximately 1200 drinking fountains in Zurich. They have one of the greatest number of fountains in the world.

We’re dressed and ready for the wedding!

  1. ah looking at this makes me miss Zurich! I visited Big Z last year before heading to Neuchatel to see the Boyf. Switzerland is such an expensive country! My McD ending up being $15. I cried when I saw my bank account. Haha.

    1. It’s a beautiful place, but it is pretty shocking how expensive everything is in comparison to everywhere else! haha I guess as long as you go in with the right expectation, it will be okay

  2. You two look sharp! I’m loving your travel blog; I’ve already noted some places to visit. Thanks! I wouldn’t even know what to do with myself in that hotel room. Such a great view!
