Rapperswil & Knie’s Kinderzoo

We had a cool weekend. Spending Saturday afternoon with a lovely family from Vineyard Church. They invited us over their home which was really special. Being able to see how a Swiss family (also with young kids) works here in Switzerland is really cool. Much the same as in NZ (funnily enough!) just with cooler houses and lots of different toys for the kids to play with. And of course a most beautiful Swiss bbq for dinner. I must get myself a coal / wood bbq, so much more fun than gas.

On Sunday we took the train out to Rapperswil. A town on the opposite end of the Z├╝risee. I have heard it is a really pretty town and it is also the home of Knies Kinderzoo. As it is Noah’s birthday next week we thought we would take the boys there. And we didn’t have church (every third Sunday of the month Vineyard has no official service). The Zoo is definitely is a must see for kids. They best part was the sea lion show. Very cool and we had front row seats so got really close. And awesome play areas and elephant rides. We watched the elephants have a bath and spray water at the onlookers, luckily we didn’t have front row seats there!

After we went for a walk through Rapperswil village and had a look at the rose gardens and castle. Some great views too. A most romantic wee town. They had a Polish Museum exhibition thingi – I thought of you, Louise, you would love it!
