Sunflower fields near Zurich?

Was keen to photograph some nice fields full of sunflowers (if we ever actually get sunshine and blue skies).

Does anyone know where there are some nice large fields of sunflowers anywhere around Zurich or a short drive?

Re: Sunflower fields near Zurich?

There's a big field of them near the Gasthof Herrenberg in Bergdietikon. I walk the dogs past it, and think they look like triffids! There are thousands of them, all about 7ft tall staring in the same direction.

www.gasthof-herrenberg.ch for directions. It's only 15 mins from Zh HB on the train then a 10 min bus ride (and a bit of an uphill walk), but it might be a bit far from your end of Zurich. PM me if you do want directions/bus numbers.

Plus if it's a clear day you'll get a good view of the Alps too.

There are some sunflower fields at Glattbrugg (near the airport).
You'll see them next to the Rumlang Bauler tram stop (on the No. 10 line)...
I think they're slightly past their prime now but should be good for a few pics!
