Zurich is filled with art and wonder. I had a closer look at all the statues and found out- some of them are rather scary than pretty. In time with Halloweeen, i present you with my Scary-Sculpture-Guide.
I don't know hwat it represents, I also don't know, why it looks at me like this or why it's hiding in the bushes at Sonnenberg. Please leave me alone!
Bern has the famous Kindlifresserbrunnen (German for Child Eater Fountain), we have the not so famous Klausbrunnen at the corner of Neustadtgasse-Frankengasse.... what is that sculputure doing with that child?
Rumours say that when this fountain was built in the passway at Bahnhof Wollishofen, the architect immured himself by mistake. If you're thirsty, you may drink his spit...
Talking of spit: A wonderful hommage to Jabba the Hutt, the scariest figure within the entire Star Wars-Universe, stands directly in front of Heilig Kreuz Kirche.
I still have nightmares featuring the twins from Stanley Kubrick's «Shinning». However, it's a known fact thht the twins in Stanley Kubrick's «Shinning» suffer from nighmares featuring this fountain at Sihlporte.

The ballad-monger at Hardau reminds of the travelling people who used to have their quarters close by. Seems they were very, very skinny....
I don't know what Hans-Georg Nägeli was famous for and why he deserved a statue at Hohe Promenade. It certainly wasn't for his friendly face. (Correction: he was an important music educationist, publisher and composer and much nicer than the statute presumes).
Is it a ghost? Is it a lost soul? I have no idea what or whom it represents for but it's large and stands in front of the 25hour Hotel at Zurich West.
A French bulldog with wings? Scary! I'm glad it's tethered.
I've told you before but another warning can't hurt. Fraudsters are active on all housing platforms in Switzerland. Also on my pages. Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that all offers are genuine. I do my best to blacklist any i catch but
2. Cheeses Of Nazereth
I love a bit of cheese. Whether it’s Raclette, Fondue or just a piece of Cheddar with bread, a good culinary evening usually requires a visit to the cheese shop. But where to go? I tested out a few of the cheese shops in the city.
