Arrives in Zürich and stays overnight at the inn Schwerdt.

Primary sources

  • Passport dated 6.7.1819 issued by P.O. Brøndsted to Thorvaldsen (the passport is dated in Zürich 14.8.1819, so Thorvaldsen must have arrived late on 13.8.1819 and not presented his passport until the following day).
  • Travel expenses of July-October 1819 of J.L. Lund (the date can be deduced from this).
  • Thiele III, p. 8.
