Zurich for city explorers

View the city from the terrace of the Lindenhof. Stroll along the shores of Lake Zurich. Visit the delightful workshops and boutiques of the Old Town. See the Grossmünster and Fraumünster churches with their beautiful stained-glass windows. Admire works by some of the world's greatest artists at the Kunsthaus. And don't forget to try some delicious rösti (a Swiss classic made with fried potato), cheese fondue and wickedly good chocolate pralines.

Zurich for fun

The once quiet and reserved financial centre of Switzerland is becoming an increasingly lively city. Zurich has more than 500 clubs and bars in which to party until dawn. Every year the city hosts the Street Parade, Europe's biggest open-air techno and rave party. Join other young pleasure-seekers in the Zürich-West district. With its trendy bars and clubs, this former industrial area sets the rhythm for the city.

Zurich for art lovers

The city, famous for opera, ballet and classical concerts, is also home to more than 50 museums and 100 art galleries. The Kunsthaus houses the largest collection of modern art in Zurich, with works by Giacometti, Picasso, Monet and Chagall. The Foundation E.G. Bührle Collection includes works by Monet, Cézanne and Renoir.
