In pictures: Twenty little snapshots of Zurich

“Switzerland is simply a large, lumpy, solid rock with a thin skin of grass stretched over it” – Mark Twain

It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement for a country, is it.

But, when I visited Zurich on the Germany side of this split-cultured city, I was delighted to discover that there is beauty to be found, from the lazy aqua green river that scythes through the turreted and cobbled centre of old town to the hidden pockets of foodie paradise dotted around this terribly modern, yet terribly traditional financial hub.

Much more on that later, but for now, here’re just a few snapshots of my oh-so-brief encounter with Zurich.
