These are must-see sights and vantage points in Zurich.


The famous

The most visited historical museum in Switzerland, it includes three cultural history museums and a collection centre.



The landmark

The two towers of the Grossmünster are simply part of the skyline of the Limmat city. By the way, you can climb one of them!


The artistic windows

The Fraumünster church opposite is famous for its magnificent stained glass windows by Marc Chagall and Augusto Giacometti.



The local mountain

The best way to see a city is from above. In Zurich, the "Üezgi", as the locals call their local mountain, is quickly reached and the panorama extends over the city and lake.


The shopping mile

Zurich is world-famous as a shopping destination. The easiest place to shop is on Bahnhofstrasse, where boutiques, department stores and fashion outlets are lined up close together.



The lake

If you haven't seen Lake Zurich, you haven't been to Zurich. And the wonderful Alpine panorama that opens up at Bürkliplatz is unique.


The history

The beautiful green area has been known as a settlement site since 80 BC and is thus considered the historical nucleus of Zurich. Slightly elevated above the Limmat, the Lindenhof is the perfect photo spot.



The centre

The Niederdorf, oriels, narrow alleys, secluded backyards and magnificent guild houses wind their way to the left and right of the Limmat. A must on any visit to Zürich.


The New District

Once an industrial district, today a trendy one: design, culinary delights and nightlife are on the upswing in urban Zürich-West.



The view

The quaint red "Polybähnli" from Cental takes you to the ETH terrace in a minute. You are rewarded with a magnificent view over the Old Town, the city centre and the lake.
