Neighbourhood photo series - today in Zürich, Switzerland

Ein Spaziergang durch die Nachbarschaft - rund um die Welt. Blog's im Internet machen es möglich. Jo von jojoebi-designs.com organisiert so einen Spaziergang, sie lebt mit ihrem Mann und Sohn in Saitama, Japan.


A neibourhood walk a round the world. Jo from jojoebi-designs.com did organize such a walk. She lives with her husband and son in Saitama, Japan.


Heute bin ich dran. Herzlich willkommen in der Schweiz, genauer gesagt in Zürich! Ich zeige euch heute ein Stück davon. Laufen wir los!

Today is my turn. Welcome in Zürich, Switzerland.  

 I'll show you now my neighbourhood. Let's go!

post box - Briefkasten
We got all new post boxes last year. 
What remains is the colour YELLOW.
a local store - Migros-Filiale
That's where i do some of my shopping after work.
a manhole cover - Schachtabdeckung 
especially made for Zürich, as you can see.
hydrant - Hydrant
With a "water"-face.
play area - Spielplatz
That's one of our favorite playgrounds, hidden between 
some busy streets.
Street view - Strassenansicht mit Tram
Blue and White are the colours of all public transport 
in the city.
local form of transportation - Bus
We've got a very good public Transport System. One can 
choose between Tram, Bus, Interurban Train, cable car, 
boat...all with the same ticket.

cable car - Polybahn
Going up from Central to ETH and University.
Always packed with Students and Tourist's.

A lake near by is just great!

In summertime, we sometimes rent a pedalo a take a turn...

swan - Schwan
....or having a nice swim like this swan.

  2. Oh I just love Switzerland! Everything is well organised, quality of living is high, people are lovely and friendly and the nature and landscapes are amazing. One day we'll move to Switzerland and buy a farm high up in the Alps (when we win the lottery).
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. wow, it looks lovely there, another place on my wish list of places to visit!
    I think that there is a primary colour rule for mail boxes - they all seem to be red, yellow or blue!

    thanks for taking part, there is one more secret location set up for tomorrow..

  4. Dear Rachael
    You're lucky to see Zürich before summer holiday. The City is always just one big road work! Really, diversions with no end.
    But there's still the lake to take a swim.
    Thank's for visiting.

  7. Oh the cable car and playground look like so much fun! My mother just came back from Switzerland, but she did touristy and resorts in places like Lugano, Ascona, Locarno, & Interlakin. Although, this is wonderful because its neighborhoods and fire hydrants and your local store, the wonderful everyday part of life!
