#rieterpark #visitzurich #inlovewithswitzerland #bestparkintown #rietbergmuseum #villawesendonck One if the best parks in Zürich. Not only nature but one of the best museums in town can be found here: museumrietberg
Another day, another walk in this park. I think I’ve taken a photo of this bronze statue a dozen times, in rain, in snow, and now in waning cherry blossom. My daily walk with Gracie helps me appreciate the seasons in a way I simply couldn’t before having a dog. Happy Monday! #rieterpark #dogwalk #zürich #zurichlife
The Rieterpark is Zurich's largest and most impressive landscape garden and is located in the Zurich Enge area of the city, not far from Lake Zurich.
The park and its villa (today known as Museum Rietberg) were built in 1855 and were taken over at the end of the 19th century by the Winterthur industrial family Rieter, becoming the property of the city in 1945. Some beech trees in the park are still part of the original grove and are over 150 years old.
When the weather is clear, the Glarus Alps provide a visual end point, creating a sense of unending vastness.
