Blossoms in Zurich Unterland

Hi,

Spring is here and we are looking for some outstanding nature scenes around the Zurich Unterland or the Rafzerfeld area. Blossoms are especially sought.

Does anyone know places worth visiting? Is April too early anyway?

Not the Züri Unterland area, but only about an hour from Rafz if you are up for an excursion:

Insel Mainau (DE) puts on a truly glorious spring display:

Try to go mid week, as it will likely be quite crowded on weekends.

Many thanks. It looks amazing, but is it right now as beautiful as it is in those photos?

Don't know, haven't been there this year. But from the website:

Die Blütezeiten sind nur ungefähre Angaben, da sie von Temperatur und Niederschlag abhängen und jährlich variieren. Die hier gezeigten Bilder orientieren sich an den Blütezeiten vom vergangenen Jahr. Gerne können Sie den aktuellen Blütestand vor Ihrem Besuch auf der Mainau erfragen: info (at) mainau.de

So write them and ask what is in bloom now, or expected to be when you plan to visit.

I'm sure there will be a great display at the moment. I have only visited in summer but have seen pictures of the spring display. It is quite spectacular
