A real insider tip, very close to Zurich, can be found in Dietikon: the Bruno Weber Park. A fantastic fairytale world by the artist Bruno Weber, who died in 2011, where both young and old will be amazed. There is a lot to discover in the 15,000 m2 sculpture park. The story behind it is also really exciting. The artist's life's work, which is now a total work of art, once sparked a dispute with the local authorities because of the illegally erected house and the figures in the forest. In 1998, however, all the buildings received blanket approval from the authorities and the park was opened to the public.
Tip: If you are travelling by bike, you can cycle from Zurich along the Limmat to Dietikon. From the Limmat, it's not far to the park, which is situated somewhat on the hill. In winter, the park takes a break.
