About Zurich

When it comes to quality of life, Zurich holds the crown for being one of the world’s best cities. From the luxurious lakeside homes that line the banks of Lake Geneva, to the lively restaurants and upmarket shops, it’s easy to see why Zurich attracts so many visitors. Boasting some of the world’s greatest museums, galleries and theatres, like the Swiss National Museum, the Zurich Opera House and the Zurich Playhouse, this is a city of fine arts, culture and elegance. By mixing the picturesque backdrop of snow-capped Alps with a vibrant nightclub scene and a shopping avenue of exclusive boutiques, Zurich really does have something for everyone.

Quick Guide to Zurich

  • Must See: Visiting the Old Town, set against a spectacular medieval background is an absolute must. For leisurely strolls and some local shopping, Burkliplatz , a boat dock, is one amazing place to check out.
  • Must Do: Catch a show or two at Tonhalle Orchestra, The Opera house or Schauspielhaus Zurich—some of the world-famous cultural venues in the city.
  • Did You Know: St. Peter Church in Zurich is the Europe’s biggest church clock face. Dating back to 1534, it is one of the hidden historical treasures in the city.
