  • Overview

    Switzerland’s cosmopolitan city of Zurich is consistently ranked amongst the world’s highest for excellence in quality of life. More than just a global centre for banking and finance, it’s culturally vibrant, on-trend, and is beautifully situated on the River Limmat at the northern end of Lake Zurich.

    Zurich boasts delightfully green open spaces, swimming is popular in the river, lake and numerous lidos, and the Uetliberg mountain which towers over Zurich’s rooftops, is easily reached by train. The city boasts a vast selection of eateries from inventive pop-up to Michelin star, and there’s heavenly confectionery and lakeside Badi-Bars. There are magnificent churches and narrow alleyways in the Old Town, plus numerous museums, galleries, concert halls and a fabulous opera house. Go to Bahnhofstrasse for trendy shopping and the old Schipfe district for artisan handicrafts. Although easy to discover by foot, a sightseeing cruise is a must; purchase a Zurich Card for unlimited (2nd class) travel by tram, bus, train, boat and cable car, plus free or reduced fee entry to many attractions.
