Explore beautiful Zurich, with the Limmat River and Lake Zürich running through the city and the majestic Swiss Alps towering over it. While the old town (Altstadt) of Zürich offers a collection of preserved heritage buildings and old churches, modern Züri is a thriving financial center with a lively nightlife. Zürich’s landmark 12th century cathedral of Grossmünster, the much older Fraumünster Church with its lovely stained-glass windows, the 17th century Rathaus (or town hall), and the Bahnhofstrasse or high street lined with boutiques and high-end restaurants are must-visits on any traveler’s list. Art lovers meanwhile have much to see at the Kunsthaus Zürich and the Rietberg Museum, the county’s largest museum of non-European cultures. The food scene in Zürich’s modern, industrialized part of town is worth exploring with its food markets, street stalls, popular food festivals, and fine dining restaurants. And let’s not forget that Switzerland’s largest city is the cheese, chocolate and fondue capital of the world!
