You Are Here Ornament – Switzerland

Here is the second mini mug from the recent weekend release. Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Switzerland is a colorful representative of this adorable series and has everything this country is famous for: cheese, chocolate, watch, lakes, and mountains. And for the latter, designers specifically depicted the Matterhorn, a pyramidal peak between Italy and Switzerland. The four steep faces, rising above the surrounding glaciers, face the four compass points and are split by the Hörnli, Furggen, Leone/Lion, and Zmutt ridges. As for the bear (on the back of the mug), this is probably related to Bern, “city of Bears”.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Switzerland

Starbucks You Are Here Christmas Switzerland has been revealed right after its smaller brother. It has exactly the same design, but is bigger in size. The box is supposed to be black (or dark grey) as well. We can only speculate now about all European (and maybe Asian) countries getting Christmas editions for YAH mugs. As usual, as soon as I get any news, will post them here.… Read more

You Are Here – Switzerland

We only had Zurich from this “square flag country” and voila, two new mugs has been released this October.
Please welcome You Are Here Switzerland. This is a very colorful mug and we can see blue mountains, green highlands, Swiss watch and a cow (for Swiss cheese?)

You Are Here – Bern

Starbucks You Are Here – Bern is another Swiss mug released in January 2020. Bern (or Berne, as seen on Icon mug) is the capital of the country, but it was only released after Geneva, Lucerne, and Zurich.
Apart from cheese and mountains, which Switzerland is famous for, I am seeing the following points of interest on the mug:
– The Kornhausbrücke – a stone and iron bridge over Aare river. Btw, not seen on the mug but worth mentioning is the Untertorbrücke (German: Lower Gate Bridge) – an arch bridge built in wood in 1255 and then rebuilt in stone in 1461.… Read more

You Are Here – Basel

Starbucks You Are Here – Basel was released almost a month ago and I am finally adding it to the list.
Basel is the third most populous city in Switzerland and is located on the border with two other European countries – Germany and France. Interestingly enough, some of Basel’s suburbs are located outside of the country. Switzerland is a member of the Schengen Area so no passport check is required when crossing the border from France or Germany, however, since it is not a member of the EU, you have to declare any goods you bring in.… Read more

You Are Here – Geneva

YAH collection is continuing to expand in Europe with the fresh release of Starbucks You Are Here Geneva mug. The color scheme is pretty interesting. The front of the mug is mostly green.
– there is a red statue I can’t identify (I tried hard, trust me)
– four 15-foot-tall statues of Geneva luminaries on Reformation Wall (Mur de la Réformation)
– running shoes – for Geneva Marathon (The Harmony Geneva Marathon for UNICEF) – is an annual marathon held in May

The rest of the mug is mostly blue and shows:
– beautiful Lake Geneva – it is one of the largest lakes in Western Europe and gives you absolutely stunning views with mountains in the background.… Read more

You Are Here – Lucerne

As I mentioned before, October brought us two Switzerland releases. This is the second You Are Here Mug – Lucerne. It is as colorful as other two Swiss YAHs and is probably designed by the same person.
Lucerne is a very popular touristic destination due to it’s location on the shores of Lake Lucerne and within visibility of Pilatus and Rigi mountains.
So far I can only recognize Kapellbrücke – a covered wooden footbridge across the Reuss… Read more
