Departed Innsbruck at 9.50 and arrived into Zurich 1.20pm. Train trip was nice and comfortable. Distinct change in scenery when we entered Swiss territory - heavy frost on the ground and a few frozen waterfalls but no snow.

Checked into hotel (really lovely) and then went for a walk down towards the lake to see where the fireworks would be taking place. Also scoped out the rooftop terrace at the hotel which has views towards the lake but it will probably only fit about 10 people on it.

First impressions - Zurich looks lovely but blanketed in heavy fog at the moment. We shall see what tomorrow brings. Hoping it might be clearer as we want to go up to Felsnegg via cable car to take in views.

Looking for something for dinner we passed a number of different restaurants but they all look dreadfully expensive. So in our wisdom went to McDonalds and we bought 2 Big Mac Meals and 1/2 doz nuggets - CHF $32.50 (AUD $44.27).

Currently waiting for fireworks to go off at midnight.
