Zurich Part II

Yesterday, I wrote about the excellent dining options in Zurich. But perhaps what I love most about the city is its floral scent—created by the 200 decades-old linden trees lining its main street, the Bahnhofstrasse. The new Gartencity Zürich project, running through mid-September all over the city, features exotic plants and trees in 306 large pots by 200 designers (including German artist Hans Langner, a.k.a. Birdman). My favorite: no. 238, a black-cherry plum tree in a pot designed by Markus Wyss and André Gutknecht that resembles the largest reproduction of challah bread ever created (pictured).
