On my way back from the Rheinfalls, I had to change trains in Winterthur again. I decided since I was not in a hurry I may as well stay and explore Winterthur a bit.
Since it was a Sunday afternoon, it was quiet, and most places were closed.
Strolling through Winterthur
This building had caught my eye even when I was still on the train. I left Winterthur, Hauptbahnhof to walk past the building and to see it up closer. At the time I did not know it, but it is the ZHAW School of Management and Law. I just think it is a stunning building!
I then walked through the city garden (Stadtgarten) where I came across the statue of Dr. Jonas Furrer. Dr. Furrer was president of the Swiss Confederation four times in his life!
There was a building in the city gardens, but I have no idea what it was.
There was also a beautiful statue of a naked lady.
Next, I came to the Museum Oskar Reinhart am Stadtgarten. It is an art museum but was closed.
I then walked past the back of a church with two different towers. One was rather plain, but the other one was beautiful with a blue and gold clock face. This church was the city church of Winterthur (Stadtkirche Winterthur).
By this time I was thirsty from all the walking I had done at the Rheinfalls and Zurich, I decided to sit at the McDonalds and have a drink while watching people.
Afterwards I passed the Credit Suisse AG building on my way back to the Winterthur, Hauptbahnhof – another beauty!
Walking through Winterthur did not take long. It is a small town near Zurich. My impression was that it is a quiet place, even when the shops are open.
Do you like visiting little towns like Winterthur impulsively? If so, which town did you discover in this way?
