Rapperswill is a medieval village at the end of the Zurichsee, which can be reached by ferry and train. We spent an afternoon on the 2 hour ferry trip calling into all the ports along the way. This home was decorated by gold leaf and mosaics, beautiful. Returned back to Zurich by train.
A fortress wall surrounds the town.
Beautiful homes and vineyards line the fortress wall.
Arriving by ferry at Rapperswill. Underneath the trees along the foreshore are giant chess sets, where the locals spend time playing.
Throughout Europe, I became fascinated with these intricate ways of displaying a shop's name and wares. Would you believe this one was outside McDonalds!!!
