We met each other in the main railway station @ Zürich. We walked in the famous Bahnhofstrasse and visit the Old city. Up to the Lindenhof square to get a panoramic view on Zürich and the Limmat river. On the way to the harbor, a quick stop to the Roman Baths dated around the 1st century A.D but not in use anymore... Another stop to discover the stunning stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall in The Fraumünster church.
Dyesebel advice me some top class hotel just in case I missed my last train: the Widder Hotel or the Hotel zum Storchen. We were also tempt by some bargains on the street market held on every Saturday at the Flohmarkt am Bürkliplatz. Around noon we reached the pier ready tp board for a cruise on the Zürich Lake. On board the happy VTer's had lunch before relaxing and gossiping about the last VT news. After eating some fruity teddy bears as dessert, we reached the lovely Rapperswil after cruising for 1h45mn.
