Overlooking the Niederdorf district of Zürich from a residential balcony is Heidi the Zürich cow. Ever popular for photographs with tourists who bother to glance up and spot her, Heidi is one Zürich landmark which is easy enough to miss to a rogue glance the wrong way.
On either side, Heidi sports paintings of the shorefronts of the Limmat river which runs close by through central Zürich .
