... the window and felt like you were apart of a Disney movie set. The area has bright yellow and blue buildings with rapunzel towers galore. I was waiting for Aladdin to fly past on his magic carpet! Shane and Yorg (Berlin) had advised us that Zurich was super expensive to buy anything and boy were they not wrong.
