Bruno Weber Park

In October we joined my friend Katie and her son Alex (also known as Big Alex, so as not to confuse the two boys) to a very intriguing park tucked away in the outskirts of Dietikon. The park was designed by Bruno Weber, a Swiss artist and architect. There’s a ton of interesting information about why he made all of the sculptures the way that he did. I won’t go into all of the nitty gritty, but this short video below is a great introduction to the artist, and the amazing imagination & vision he had!

Now for a few pictures!

The boys were very eager to sit on every possible sculpture that was allowed to be climbed on! Each had their 10 seconds of fame.

This massive piece was known as the “winged dogs” and encloses the water garden.

These chairs I found particularly interesting as Katie explained that depending on the mood of the person, he/she would choose which chair felt most appropriate.

Both boys had a turn at the Alp Horn

We spotted a peacock relaxing on the balcony.

This is such a neat park with so many hidden little details that you don’t always catch at first glance. I highly recommend a visit to this park for little ones if you’re in Zurich/Dietikon.

    What a unique park, Steph! I have never seen anything like it, in my lifetime! The boys seemed to have a good time with one another! Thanks for sharing these with us!
    Love you,
