Trink Wasser

Switzerland doesn’t have many natural resources (unless you count gorgeousness), but it does seem to have a healthy supply of clean water. Zürich has over 1,200 drinking fountains, and the styles vary. If you don’t have your water bottle with you, just stick your mouth over the endlessly running stream of clear water.
