How far is Zurich from the alps?
Waid, Zürich-Wipkingen, Switzerland; Blick auf Innenstadt, Seebecken und Glarner Alpen.
People who have never been to Zurich often ask about the mountains. "They're quite a bit away, it takes at least an hour to get to the closest ski resort," I usually explain.
I'm starting to realize why some may find this statement absurd.
