Zurich Attractions at a Glimpse

Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland, wealthiest in Europe, with the best quality of life in the world. Its history goes back to its founding by the Romans in 15 BC and has a rich medieval background.

Today it is a leading global city listed among the world's largest financial centers. Although the city has a comparatively small population, it is home to many financial institutions and banking giants.

The most important sights worth checking out during your Zurich tour are mostly based in the town center. Here are some must-sees of the city to place on your Zurich itinerary: the Old Town (the town's cultural, historical and social center), the Grossmunster Church (its double towers are Zurich's main landmark), the Peterskirche (Peter's Church that has Europe's largest clock-face), Fraumunster (Minster of Our Lady - 9th century Gothic abbey known for its stained glass windows created by Giacometti and Chagall), Lake Zurich (fancied place for walks and boat-rides), as well as the Uetliberg peak (a 869 meter-high mountain with a renowned observation tower).

Apart from that, there's much to see for culture lovers: visit the local museum, Opera House or the concert hall - Tonhalle. Moreover, Zurich has one of the most famous and exquisite shopping miles in the world as well as varied unique cultural offerings.

See Zurich's medieval buildings, Renaissance town halls, walk down its curvy narrow streets and experience the city's plentiful opportunities for entertainment.
