Favorite thing: We spent New Year count-down on a S-train but it doesn't matter, we didn't miss Zurich highlight of a night - the fireworks. If you want best views it is good to be early somewhere by the Zurich lake shores because it will be the crowdest spot of the city as the midnight approach, with countless people participating - in their best mood, with glasses of wine to toast, some will bring their own, other will buy it from the provisoric booze-stands. So, reasonably those who come earlier get the best views - but minds your camera on tripod, nevertheless.

Fondest memory: We had a thick fog that day but this has its atmosphere too when colored fireworks spread along the air - of the glamourous dimensions, accompanied by the blast of sound. The lights by a fog are simply different than lights on a normal night. The 'explosions in the sky' would begin 20 past midnight.
