The forecast predicted fine weather this weekend in Zurich.  Though whether it will be as sunny as last week and if the water in the lake is warm enough for swimming is another question. The photo above was taken last Saturday in Zurich and the lake was definitely “refreshing” then – before last week’s rain arrived!

There is an International Community and Parenting Fair taking place on Saturday from 10 – 5pm in Kilchberg at the Kirchegemeindehaus Kilchberg, Stockenstrasse 150, 8802 Kilchberg on Saturday 14th.  This also coincides with the Lernfestival 2012 – a national campaign for lifelong learning which started on Friday. If you like writing there is the English version of an “endless story” to which you can contribute if you click here and which is part of this event.

Or you could pop down to Bürkliplatz and take a look at the flea market there. It’s open from 9am till 4pm on Saturdays from May – October with up to 500 stall holders and an ever changing array of goods for sale. Always worth a peek!

And if you fancy getting out of the city and watching one of the the Alpabzug festivals taking place this weekend, with the cows coming down the mountain, please check out our previous post for more details.
