One of the prettiest things about Spring in Switzerland is the beautiful blossom in the trees. Certain parts of Zurich are transformed in Springtime and if you’re a lover of blossom of all types, there is one place you really must visit at this time of year. It’s called the Chriesiwäg and is easily accessible from Zurich and makes a fabulous excursion for all the family.

Armed with her camera, Carmen set off the other day to investigate, and came back with all these beautiful shots.

There is a 5km circular marked trail you can take to get the most out of the excursion. It’s very easy to walk around (fairly flat and no hiking boots required) and it really is beautiful.

Along the way there are eleven information boards giving you information about the trees, how the cherries are grown, the landscape, the history of Fricktal cherries and the different varieties, the bees and how cherries are cultivated.

The best time to visit is from mid April to the end of May, but of course every year it’s slightly different. Over 10,000 fruit trees will bloom across the whole area – so it really is a blossom wonderland.
