ZURICH 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.

  • Uetliberg peak (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.
