A look at quaint little Flurlingen

While walking down the streets and snapping photos, I thought to myself that I wouldn’t mind living here. The village I live in is a bit too small for me, but Flurlingen has that bit of life and charm I like to picture when thinking of Switzerland. It’s situated in Zürich canton near Schaffhausen, Neuhausen and the Rheinfall.

Last Saturday, I took a walk from Flurlingen to the Rheinfall and back. There’s a bridge that crosses the Rhein river so you can take a nice walk around and cross again at the Rheinfall. There were so many black berries along the way that I picked my fill.

It was the last hot day I’ve had (I’m worried my birthday next week will feel like winter!) and I felt like jumping into the water throughout the entire walk. Right at the end of my walk, I walked by this area where people lay out and swim. It’s a bit too crowded for my taste, so I’ll stick to my swimming spot for now, but it’s still great to see so many people out and about enjoying the summer.

I’ve got so many travel posts that I need to share with you, that I almost didn’t post these, but I sure hope you like them almost as much as I enjoyed my short walk through the little town.

    Oh wow. Look at that house…half covered in moss. GORGEOUS. I can’t get my vines and moss to grow like that to save my life.

    I didn’t get farther than halfway through your second paragraph and I was completely swept away in your life. It’s like a dream, Eva. Towns here just aren’t like that. You can’t walk from one to another and expect such beautiful scenery. They’re all roads and business and “time is money”. Maybe I need to spend some time in Switzerland one day.

    This village is just so gorgeous! It makes me want to move there! And the river shots that you took are just amazing!! Especially that 2nd photo with the waves coming in! I absolutely loved that! And the houses! They are so cute! AND they have soooo many windows! I don’t think I have seen many houses in the US with that many windows! That would make for a bright, sunny house! Gahh, this makes me think about where I’m gonna live when I get older and how I will decorate my house. I can’t wait!! I hope I can make it look as beautiful as the houses you show in your posts!!

    Add another fan to your growing list of us who are loving these “Swiss village walkabouts” with you! Fluringen is indeed utterly charming and I’m so glad you decided to post this! Look at that beautiful turquoise water! So inviting. And how I love the ivy-covered houses, the window boxes and shutters, and the sweet little spring-fed trough! With flowers on top of it, no less! Enchanting.

    Hard to choose a favorite photo, they’re all so delightful. But that last one may just be it. That bicycle, parked there in the bright sunshine among the wildflowers beside the pretty river with the bridge in the background – it doesn’t get any more summery-perfect than that!

    I just surfed on this post via google search and thought I have to let you know that my husband, my almost 2 year old daughter and I did the same as you. We went for a walk through Flurlingen and had the same thought. Only that it was 3 months ago and we handed in our notice to our current flat and are moving there in 2 weeks!!! We can not wait to enjoy our summer in this beautiful little place! This is the place I am hoping my little girl will enjoy growing up in. So…thanks for confirming what we also liked about Flurlingen! I will check out the rest of your page now!
