The gorgeous park of Villa Villette
The church of St. Jacob is a late Baroque building from the 18th Century,
with a late Gothic tower from the 15th Century
There are a number of Swiss heritage sites of national significance in Cham.
These include the Eslen, a Neolithic lake shore settlement,
the church and Cistercian convent at Frauenthal, t
he Castle of St. Andreas, two buildings in the old city, and the brickyard.
So lucky with the weather
as it had been so chilly & rainy during that week
Nice places to have a little walk
Cham is app. 30km south of Zürich
- population is a bit under 15.000 inhabitants
Lake Zug
Many fish
(including pike and carp of considerable weights)
are taken in the lake,
which is especially famous for an endemic kind of trout

together with bride & groom
At 4pm transportation to Vaduz, Liechtenstein
for the wedding dinner
- as the groom is from Switzerland
and the bride from Liechtenstein
it was great to have the party in both places!
Wedding continued by the private vineyard
of the Prince of Liechtenstein
Castle of the Prince of Liechtenstein
- not a bad place to live!
