It's a bird! It's a plane!... no silly, it's the Fonduetram!

I would not have believed it if I did not see it with my own eyes... and I did. I almost ran into it, or it me, a few weeks ago and I ran home to see what it was all about - enter: The Fondue Tram.

You don't have to be a genius to figure out what this marvel of Swiss transportation is - but in case you need assistance, it is a tram, on which during the course of a 2 hour grand tour around Zürich you get to stuff yourself with Fondue. Is this my kind of heaven? Yes, I think so. Efficiency and cheese. Doesn't get better than this.

Details are on the VBZ Site here, but in German. Use the Google Webpage Translator to read the page for all the wheres and whens. It costs a whopping 89 CHF per person and goes from January through February 28th. Enjoy!

What an amazing idea! I would love to get on that train!

Amanda said...

That looks like fun. I totally want to try it! Thanks for the information.

P.S. Since we don't live in Zurich, and therefore don't know about all it has to offer, I've started making a list of things to do there based on your archives!

Thanks, Amanda. That is exactly the intention of my blog on the whole, I think. A nice little resource for things to do and see around Zürich. I am glad you are finding it useful. :)
