More than just a city

Zurich offers a wide variety of typical sites and locations. The Grossmünster, Lake Zurich, Bahnhofstrasse and Zurich Zoo are just the start...

Zurich’s famous facades certainly have a story or two to tell. Urban explorers can visit the Grossmünster and the historic guild halls, as well Lenin’s apartment in exile or Einstein’s favorite cafe.

Zurich’s churches

Zurich’s skyline is dominated by its churches. The twin towers of the Grossmünster, the stained glass windows of the Fraumünster and the clock tower of St. Peter are all prominent features of the cityscape.

What would Zurich be without Lake Zurich? The city's very own ‘sea’ is perfect for summer swimming and all kinds of water sports. And a boat ride around the lake is an absolute must!
Zurich is blessed with countless parks and green spaces. One of the most beautiful is the Chinese Garden, a gift from Zurich’s twin city Kunming in China.

Zurich Zoo

Zurich Zoo is easily accessible and is one of Europe’s most attractive zoological gardens. It is committed to conservation and biological diversity.

Cultural diversity

Zurich places a high premium on art and culture. In addition to its exquisite opera house, culture vultures will discover the best museums, concerts and theaters.

Urban creativity

A new district is emerging in Zurich-West around the old factory building. It lends Zurich its unconventional charm and provides plenty of space for creativity.
