As a major centre for business and banking, Zurich’s a city that’s firmly on the international stage. And while the world’s movers and shakers head to the city to close business deals, Zurich’s also got plenty to do for those visiting on holidays.
Zurich is a stunning city, with soaring mountains and pristine lakes offering picturesque views. It’s no surprise then that the city regularly tops global liveability indexes. Culturally, Zurich is also impressive, with hip new art galleries and vibrant museums attracting visitors from around the world. In summer, locals head to their ‘badis’, outdoor swimming lidos dotted around the city, while in winter city dwellers visit Zurich’s many spas or stop by one of the city’s cafes for a warming hot chocolate or cheese fondue. If you’re searching for Zurich hotels, Leonardo Boutique Hotel Rigihof Zurich is a beautiful bauhaus-style building in the vibrant university district, or for a special treat book into the luxurious, heritage-listed Alden Suite Hotel Splügenschloss Zurich.
Get your bearings
No matter the season, Lake Zurich is the epicentre of the city. And there’s no better way to experience it than by sampling the local lake fish dish ‘Fischknusperli’ at one of the lakeside restaurants or hopping aboard a boat and heading to the secluded island of Lützelau. In winter, join locals by going ice skating beside the shore, then relax in one of the city’s cosy cafes with a warming hot chocolate.
Home to one of Switzerland’s best collections of art, the aptly-named Kunsthaus Zürich (Museum of Art) is a must-see. Alongside art by prominent Swiss artists, the walls are hung with works by Picasso, Monet and Chagall.
While you’re there
Visit Grossmunster, Zurich’s iconic church, and admire the romanesque crypt and stained-glass windows before visiting nearby eatery Le Dézaley for their popular cheese fondue. Those wanting to do some shopping can head to Zurich Niederdorf, known to locals as Dörfli, a delightful pedestrianised area that’s home to boutiques, galleries, bars and cafes.
