ds Zigermannli – Röthlisberger

Röthlisberger statue on Zurichberg.

The high point of my morning walk is a viewpoint on Zürichberg that overlooks the city, the lake, and the hills and Alpine mountains beyond.  But I often walk further, following the path south along the slope.  Within a few hundred meters I pass a pleasant little park that currently includes an installation of bronze statues by Zürich artist Freddy Air Röthlisberger.  I find these pieces captivating, in part because each comes with a brief explanation that provides a tidbit of Swiss history.   I’ll post them in a series.  The first tidbit is particularly tasty :-).
