The weather in Zurich over the holidays was lovely. It was mild, sunny, and perfect for spending time outdoors. This allowed Tony and I to properly introduce Zurich to his sister and her family.
The day after Christmas, the sun shone bright and we headed down to Old Town. This is one of the cutest parts of Zurich. It is full of ups and downs when strolling amongst the cobblestones and you can easily walk back and forth across the river. Both Fraumunster and Grossmunster are in full view, and you can take in all of the adorably Swiss buildings.
One of the bridges, Rathausbruke, presents a perfect shot of Grossmunster in the background. Tony’s sister took some bump photos of us. They showcase both the beginning of our little family and the wonderful city we live. Plus, Tony’s face is priceless.
Additionally, while the weather in Zurich has been mild compared to my home town, Chicago, it is still chilly. It’s hard to dress this very pregnant body of mine, but I have been found some creative work arounds. I often wear shorter mini-dresses as tops over jeans. This allows me to cover my bump and my butt, and repurposes clothes I already own.
Veronica (Tony’s sister) and her 3 children got some great photos as well. It was so nice to showcase Zurich.
After the photos, we continued our stroll through Old Town. Most places were closed for the holidays, but there were a few restaurants open, and we grabbed some Italian appetizers and gluhwine. We continued up to Central and made our way home via a train from the main station.
Christmas time in Zurich is such a treat, and ours this year was made even better by the presence of our wonderful family. Merry Christmas!
