Zurich - The Sheep of Oberes Bürgli

When I travel on business, I like to get up early and take a walk each day, varying my route to to see something different each morning.  This approach really paid off during a recent trip to Zurich Switzerland.  I was staying at Hotel Seehof near the Opera House and my office is in Enge.  One morning, I walked along the lake and through Belvoirpark which was alive with color because of the stunning Iris Garden. I climbed further through Rieterpark (home to Museum Rieter).  I emerged into a residential neighborhood less than a 10 minute walk from my office and was treated to sweeping views of an estate and vineyard.

I soon heard a puzzling tinkling above my head. I looked up and saw...sheep! in the middle of Zurich! wearing cowbells for dramatic effect!

I stopped to admire the flock for a while including a young lamb still unsteady on its feet.

Normally I vary my route each morning but this was such a fantastic find that I made sure to walk past Oberes Bürgli the next two days as well. At first I didn't see the sheep again when I came but then I walked down a very small street on the side of the property and behold!... the sheep were sitting near the fence. Look at this face!

I even managed to see the lamb close up. Adorable!

I love the unexpected things I find when I get up early and take time to explore a place I'm visiting.  The sheep of Oberes Bürgli were one of my top finds of all time :-)

Here's a map of the route I took that first morning stopping off at a few of Zurich's lovely parks before heading up the hill (it's a workout!) to Oberes Bürgli and the sheep of Zurich City.
