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
This was also very small, smaller than the Paleontology Museum, but I enjoyed it more. They didn't have a lot, but what they did had was really nice. And a great explanation of the earth's geology and why different minerals form different shapes. I would definitely stop by again if I were in Zurich as it was fun.
After the museum, we wandered our way to lunch
A small baroque garden we came across - Rechberg Garden.
Probably a bit nicer a little later in spring
It was another gorgeous day so we sat outside at Restaurant Le Cedre and had falafel salad which was delicious.
And then it started pouring! It had been so nice! Luckily it didn't last that long
Since we had our day pass for the transportation we decided to check out the funicular's in Zurich - there are three! First up Rigiblick bahn
And views from the top
Houses at the top
Train coming up
And taking us back down
It makes two stops along the way
After that it was on to the Dolderbahn
View from the top
There is a big hotel and golf course up there
Hotel on the right
At the bottom of the hill was a Le Pain Quotidien which had vegan treats! So we stopped for kafe und kuchen time! A cinammon snail
And a sweet roll, but this wasn't as good as the cinammon swirl
Hanging out by the ferry terminal
Looks so stormy
For dinner we went to The Butcher for burgers
And fries. Yum!
It looked a little crazy after dinner. Stormy on one side, but clearing up on the other. It was a fun day and even though clouds abounded we didn't have as much rain as we were expecting.
