Zurich - Commute Chronicles

Continuing with tradition, we awoke early so we could squeeze in a walk about Zurich before my business meetings were scheduled to start.  We started with breakfast in the B2 hotel.  The hotel is set in a former brewery and you can see telltale signs of this out the window of the breakfast room.
Colored pencils and a blank book sat on the tables for guests inspired by their inner artist.
The breakfast room was quite impressive and featured a chandelier of wine bottles and an imposing library.
The coffee tables in the lobby were actually made from books!
The hotel was admittedly a bit surprising in other ways too.  It's new and thus must conform to strict environmental standards.  The air conditioning and heating units cannot change the temperature more than +/- 3 degrees Celsius.  It took some getting used to given how hot and humid it was when we arrived.

After breakfast, we hopped on the tram toward city centre.  We were drawn into Sprüngli with its windows laden with sweet treats.
We were keen to try Luxemburgerli.  They are kind of like macarons but smaller and filled with thicker frosting.
There were at least 12 flavors on display and we found it challenging to choose.
We settled on an assortment of Luxemburgerli and continued on our way.  We passed an interesting fountain garden combo.
We wandered through the streets of the old city admiring the architecture.
We soon emerged at the Limmat River.
We turned back and spotted Zurich's signature clock tower in the distance.
We sat along the river and tried the Luxemburgerli - so sweet!
We continued along the Limmat River until it emerged at Zürichsee (Lake Zurich).
All kinds of birds were roosting on the shores of Zürichsee.
We could see some rolling hills in the distance.  It was an idyllic scene.
Beautiful statues stood along the Lake.
We followed the shore and then veered off into a lush green park.
I liked these lions outside the Swiss Life Building.
We cut through Zurich Enge station and spotted this cute dog waiting for his master outside the shop inside.
A skylight let in the sun.
We took one more opportunity to admire the regal architecture and then hoofed it back to the office to start a day of meetings.
