Zurich, Switzerland Part 3

Our last day in Zurich we went out to Uetilberg to check out the views
On the walk to the viewpoint, there is part of the solar system trail. The planets are to scale compared to the sun (above) and the distance is to scale as well
Mercury is a tiny dot in the blue
Venus is slightly larger

And the last planet we saw on the trail - Earth
Some fun lights

And the viewing platform
Benches at the overlook
It was beautiful! Still clouds covering the mountains in the distance, but it was still really gorgeous

The viewpoint from the viewing platform (the viewing platform cost a euro)

Zurich, Switzerland Part 2

Our second day was free museum day! I had found two geological museums at the university so we went to check them out. This is the view from the university
First up - the Univeristy of Zurich Paleontology Museum

It was really small and had some big fossils and bones which was fun, but overall just an okay museum
Then we headed over to Focus Terra which was inside the geology building on campus
This is the exhibits and there were a few students studying at tables around there
