Winturthur at Christmas is like Biltmore House at Christmas here in Asheville, Roy. I used to receive their catalogue and often ordered gifts from them.

That sounds like a really fun day trip, but I am thinking it might be too cold for me to enjoy it fully, haha.

They provide a shuttle bus from the visitors center to the mansion. The tour is inside and they provide lockers for your stuff while on tour and visiting the attached museum.

I love that picture you posted in your comment #1.  Reminds me of Christmas Past.  I also like the wallpaper on the wall.

One of the times pedestrians are most at risk is when they have the pedestrian signal light to cross, & cars have the green light to make a right turn. Drivers should yield to pedestrians. Pedestrians should try to make eye contact with drivers. Let's work together.
