Here I am again, making fun of a perfectly good word.
The statue is Burgermeister Hans Waldmann. I don't know why he merited a statue, but I guess he was instrumental in Zurich's history.
The twin towers of Grossmunster Church, which was endowed by Charlemagne.
The guidebook says that there are more than 30 museums in Zurich, but we didn't see any of them, being there only overnight and six hours on Sunday. I could have spent days there. If you go to Switzerland, plan to buy chocolate. The two best known brands are Sprungli and Lindt. The latter is now available all over the US, but as far as I know, Sprungli is not. I saw in the latest Town and Country Magazine that in a poll of over 200 movers and shakers all over the world, Sprungli chocolates came in first place. I bought seven boxes of it to give to friends, but would you believe I didn't eat even one piece? That's true, I didn't, and now I am sorry! Oh, and by the way, take lots of Swiss Francs if you plan to buy it - cause it ain't cheap!
