The Ambassador à l’Opéra - the Spirit of Switzerland

The Ambassador à l'Opéra is a charming hotel right next to the Opera House, and only a few hundred metres away from the city centre and old town of Zurich. But the best thing is that it is just steps from beautiful Lake Zurich.

As a matter of fact, it's worth coming to this restaurant for the wall paintings alone. The staff were kind enough to show us specific spots to observe the most special aspects of the artworks.

The rooms themselves are quite small but very cosy. It's real boutique style and, if you're lucky, you’ll get a large balcony with a view of the Opera House.

When I was a child I had a dream of visiting Australia in order to see Sydney’s Opera House and the red sands of the desert, to pet kangaroos and dive into the powerful waves of the ocean. When I turned 20, I went on my first long trip – a trip to Viña del Mar in Chile.
