Introducing Zürich


Each season shows off the beauty of Zürich in its own way, and being situated on the shores of Lake Zürich, you'll be treated to spectacular views, whatever the time of year. While the center of Zürich is full of traditionally designed buildings, quaint little squares and historical streets and avenues, it's easy to get up close to nature if you venture just outside the center. The breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps can be seen from most of the city, and you can go up to the top of Uetliberg Mountain to take in some mountain air and enjoy the views of Zürich below. The city's museums and galleries are sure to keep you occupied, and there's always Bahnhofstrasse, Europe's most upmarket shopping district.
