5 good reasons to go

See Lake Zurich and the River Limmat
See Lake Zurich and the River Limmat
Wherever you are in Zurich, water is never that far away. The lake is one of the city’s most beautiful features. The city’s proximity to water and undulating countryside means you can do all sorts of activities: go swimming or take a boat trip on the river to the beach on Werdinsel Island where you can relax in the summer months.
Luxury shopping
Luxury shopping
Zurich is well-known for its banks and also its high-end boutiques. The super-chic shopping avenue, Bahnhofstrasse, plays host to a number of boutiques belonging to major fashion houses such as Hermès, Rolex and Chanel. Head to the popular Niederdorf district for the latest pieces from young and upcoming designers.
A party city
A party city
Zurich is a very popular party destination. Head to the local bars to have fun until the early hours of the morning or go to one of the local festivals. One of the best events on the calendar is the Street Parade, a huge and impressive techno street party. The Spring Festival and Openair Music Festival are also good fun.
Admire the beautiful views of Zurich
Admire the beautiful views of Zurich
You need to see Zurich from up high! Don’t miss: the Polybahn furnicular railway which will take you all the way up to the ETZ Zurich polytechnic. The views are incredible. You’ll also get superb panoramic views from Lindenhof Platz, Grossmünster Church towers or even the rooves of the Viadukt shopping complex.
Take a dip in a thermal bath
Take a dip in a thermal bath
Some of the city’s best features are hidden from view. Away from the capital’s tourist attractions and business centres, you can unwind in the city’s thermal spas. Our firm favourite has to be the Thermalbad spa at Hürlimann Areal which is housed in a former brewery. Even the roof has been transformed into a thermal bath.

To see / do

Culture and history

Zurich, past and present

Zurich, past and present

There’s something captivating about Zurich. The historic city centre is full of architectural and artistic masterpieces. As you wander the brightly-coloured streets, you’ll see Grossmünster and Fraumünster churches. Fraumünster is famous for its stained-glass windows designed by Giacometti and Chagall. You should also explore the innovative architecture of new, trendy districts like Zurich West.

Ascend Mount Uetliberg

Ascend Mount Uetliberg

Uetliberg Mountain reaches a height of 900 m and overlooks the city. When you take the train to the top, you’ll have incredible views of the surrounding landscapes and all over the valley. Follow the hiking trails for stunning walks through the Swiss countryside, or in winter, have a go at sledging instead.

The amazing Rhine Falls

It takes less than an hour to drive from Zurich to the Rhine Falls. If you come to Switzerland, you have to visit this magical place. For something a bit different, take a boat trip and sail up close to Europe’s largest waterfalls. Don’t be scared of getting splashed! You’ll also get to see Wörth and Laufen Castles as both are close by.

Outings

The totally Dada café

The Cabaret Voltaire is a bit of an institution in Zurich. This is where the Dada artistic movement was started. The movement questioned societal conventions, ideological constraints, aesthetics and politics. Soak up the relaxed and uninhibited atmosphere, and release the Dada artist within you… or just have a coffee, watch the shows and visit the exhibitions. 

Zurich’s outdoor bars

Zurich’s outdoor bars

Travellers to Germany will have heard of outdoor biergarten. Well, Zurich has outdoor bars too! In summer, go for a drink at an outdoor bar or try something a bit different to eat. The dishes are often quite creative. And you can chill with friends by the River Limmat.

Gastronomy

Traditional Zurich Veal

If you think Zurich has no culinary traditions then you’re wrong! The local speciality is definitely Züri Gschnätzlets, Zurich-style sliced veal. Züri Gschnätzlets is a creamy dish made with slices of veal, kidneys and onions. It’s usually served with potato rostis.

Delicious luxemburgerli

Delicious luxemburgerli

Switzerland might be famous for its chocolate, but a rival sweet treat has to be the luxemburgerli. These tasty little cakes are the pride of Zurich. They’re made from two mini macarons sandwiched together with a light and creamy mousse. Luxemburgerli come in lots of different flavours.
