Photos of a May Weekend in Zurich

Lake Zurich

This weekend was a typical Swiss Spring weekend with sunshine, showers and everything in-between. After the recent rainfall there were beautiful flowers and lush greenery to be seen all around the city. There was plenty going on in Zurich events-wise too and here are just a few photos we captured.

Saturday’s forecast of rain showers and cloud was luckily completely wrong and the city enjoyed sunshine with the odd gust of wind and a few clouds.

Paul Merton was on tour in Switzerland and appeared at the Volkshaus in Zurich with an amazing “improvisation” routine. Lots of audience involvement and lots of laughter. Not entirely sure about that shirt though!

Sunday was Mother’s Day in Switzerland and there were special brunches and lunches taking place all over town. NewInZurich was lucky enough to be invited to celebrate the event with brunch and Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial “Tie-For-Two Collection” champagne at the ONYX bar at the Park Hyatt. Here are some photos:

The Dolder Classics took place at the ice rink near the Dolder and beautiful classic automobiles were on display.

Later on the weather turned cloudy and grey and the Greifensee looked a little forboding but after a few showers the skies lifted.

The forecast for the week ahead suggests more rain – but let’s hope they’ve got it wrong once more.  However, it’s probably a wise precaution to arm yourself with an umbrella tomorrow – but let’s hope for the best!
