Swarovski crystals and some snow


DSC_0155Swiss trains are renowned for their punctuality but they are also a comfortable ride.  They seem to glide along the tracks quite silently and our 45 minute ride into Zurich passed quickly.  We came to see the famed Swarovski Christmas tree and the Zurich Christmas markets held in the main train station.DSC_0160

DSC_0157The Swarovski tree is massive and dripping with glorious crystals.  It really was beautiful.  Of course there were many stalls dotted around the tree selling Swarovski products….

DSC_0162We enjoyed a warming cup of Gluhwein – a sweet spiced red wine – and a grilled Bratwurst with mustard and bread, and bought some Christmas gifts.


But were definitely not expecting to see these for sale!  (and cheaper than you can buy them in Australia!!)

DSC_0175We also ventured out in search of snow to Schwaegalp.  There was enough for a quick sled but it was really too soft so we switched to plan B….
