Beautifully positioned where a river meets a lake, Zurich has emerged as one of Europe’s trendiest destinations, full of an artsy vibe – particularly at the epicentre of the city’s nightlife, Zuri-West. Hang out on the waters of Lake Zurich to relax, or explore the Schauenberg Nordic Trail, hiking to the top of the Uetliberg for the best panoramic views of the city. Head to the Bahnhofstrasse, a world-renowned shopping street that stretches into the distance, when you’re ready for some well-deserved retail therapy. If you want to get your teeth into something more cultural, visit one of the city’s 50 museums, or the medieval streets of the Altstadt Old Town.
A wonderful place to visit in its own right, Zurich comes into its own when used as a base to explore central Switzerland, and there are so many day trips available – from the Rhine Falls to the historic city of Lucerne. There is no doubt that Zurich is one of the most expensive cities in the world, but there is some cheaper accommodation available if you know where to look. Let us help you find it!
