Zürich

About Zürich

Switzerland’s largest city is a global player, setting trends that spread across the nation – and the world.

Regularly topping the lists of world cities offering the highest quality of life, Zürich showcases an active cultural scene, with over 50 museums and more than 100 galleries presenting a diverse and high-quality cultural programme.

Beautiful churches line the banks of the River Limmat in the city centre: St. Peter’s, with the largest clock face in Europe; the Fraumünster, with its stained glass by Marc Chagall; and the mighty twin-towered Grossmünster.

Zürich offers first-class dining experiences, shopping that includes international labels and sophisticated Swiss brands, as well as vibrant nightlife. Around 250 hotels and 15,000 rooms cover a range of overnight accommodation.

This is a marvellous place to recharge your batteries – a pleasant city and charming lake overlooked by extensive forests and majestic hills. Lakeside and riverside lidos adorn the city centre, while the Uetliberg, Zürich’s local mountain, is ideal for hiking.
