...in winter.

We spent a romantic November weekend in Switzerland as part of an invitation by Radisson Blu hotels. This is the season where the Christmas markets are already open, chestnuts are roasted on every street corner by vendors in their stalls and the cities are decorated with sparkling lights all over. Join in for some magic! ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญโœจ #stellerlights

We started our day at lake Zรผrich...

We watched birds...

... and people ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

This is what winter looks like...


Then we walked around the city...

... and watched the xmas decoration.

GroรŸmรผnster in Zรผrich

A perfect day ends at a Christmas market...

Drinking hot Glรผhwein and eating freshly roasted chestnuts... โค๏ธ

... marveling at the Christmas lights.


We hiked up Uetliberg in the fog.

And even climbed up this tower for a "view" of Zรผrich

Well it was worth a try ๐Ÿ˜‚ (and costs 2 euros)

But we loved taking photos in the fog...

Next stop: Library of the law university in Zรผrich (By architect Calatrava)

And then we finally got our view of Zรผrich! ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ


...in winter.

This city is a one hours drive away from Zรผrich...

This bridge is the most famous sight.

Usually you can see more of the surrounding mountains.

But the sights of the lake and the city are also beautiful on a cloudy day.


We started the day with a "sunrise" boat tour.

Kim enjoyed it as much as we did.... even though there was no sunrise ๐Ÿ˜‰

We shared the lake only with one rowing boat and sleeping swans.

After the boat ride it was time to explore the mountains...

We took the cable car up to Mount Pilatus.

... and we finally saw some snow (and the layer of fog from above).

Winter is a magical time in Switzerland and I can recommend a visit very much! ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ Thanks to Radisson Blu for bringing us here โค๏ธ

One of my highlights: The ice skating princesses in Lucerne ๐Ÿ˜

    Wow! You guys go to the coolest places.

  • ladyvenom

    @ninagraceless We're so fortunate to see so much of the beauty of our world ๐Ÿ˜ but Switzerland is so close for us, it doesn't feel exotic at all ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆโ˜บ๏ธ we really enjoyed it though ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

  • Hawkeyes10

    Your photos are beautiful

  • ladyvenom

    @Hawkeyes10 thanks a lot! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโ˜บ๏ธ

  • Hawkeyes10

    I can only hope that I can see this kind of beauty in my lifetime.

  • ladyvenom

    @Hawkeyes10 the one thing that photography taught me is that there's beauty everywhere in the world ๐Ÿ˜ Of course it's not always as striking as Swiss Mountains ๐Ÿ˜‰ but sometimes it's just the special sunlight or fog that makes an everyday scene beautiful!

  • B__xy

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸปI bet we will stumble into each other sooner or later ๐Ÿ˜†

    Aaaa! I love Switzerland. I spent a month there when I was a teenager as an exchange student. The freedom to travel around by train as a teen was amazing. My host sister didn't understand why we couldn't travel around California alone when she came and stayed with my family.
