Most certainly not a getaway in a romantic French château.
On the third Monday in April, Zurich celebrates Sechseläuten, the departure of Winter and the arrival of Spring by blowing up (in the festive sense) a snowman and partying in the streets.
Yay for me! I planned to be in Zurich for Anna Grace’s honors orchestra festival on the following Friday, giving Spring a few days to settle in and pretty up the city for me.
Well, the Sechseläuten failed.
