Frankfurt Airport has quite a few panini counters and a few healthy-fresh takeaway delis, as well as decent sit down brasseries. My plate of grilled Nürnberger sausages with mash and a local craft IPA really hit the spot.
Zurich airport must have had a re-do by the HGTV people; that’s my only explanation for the granite-everywhere. It does have excellent rail connections, if one remembers where to find them. So, just for reference, an S-Bahn is not a tram. The S-Bahns are in the basement along with the long-haul rail, while the trams are at street level. The S-Bahn (suburban rail) ride down to Einsiedeln was just exquisite: a sparkling blue September sky, white sailboats dotting the Zurichsee as if they were swans – and we also had some of those swans. I settled myself into the same lodgings I used on the last trip (Zum Webstuhl), and got caught up with the host. Afterwards it was time for a quick grocery hit for a light picnic dinner and some sandwich makings for tomorrow’s lunch.
