Lake Zurich, Switzerland

Lake Zurich is Stunningly picturesque The waters shimmer in winter’s icy temperatures, somehow making it look inviting.

I have just been for a walk along it’s beautiful promenade from Uto Quai to Seefeld Quai towards Zurichhorn and Bellerivestrasse.

Wide tree-fringed boulevards encourage walks or jogs. Tree branches playfully fringe picture-postcard views. At Zurichhorn the lake opens up to vast snow-capped mountain views.

Along the lake, various peaks, some renowned for skiing, are clearly visible.

Zurich is a winter wonderland & takes Christmas very seriously! It celebrates in a classic manner, which I think London has lost in parts.

The Christmas decorations are dazzling and divine! Look out for them in my ‘CH should mean Christmas in Switzerland’ post!
