A business centre, a nature lover’s paradise and a hotbed of culture – the largest city of Switzerland is all three at once. Located in the heart of Europe, Zürich is the economic and educational centre of its home country.
Zürich’s interesting history is well preserved in the Swiss National Museum. Home to a collection of artworks and crafts, Kunsthaus Zürich is a must-visit for art lovers. The museum presents works by classic artists like Picasso and Monet, as well as contemporary artists like Peter Fischli and Pipilotti Rist.
Lined with designer shops on both sides of the street, Bahnhofstrasse is definitely worth a visit if you're a shopping enthusiast. From premium watches to designer clothes, Bahnhofstrasse offers it all. Europaallee is another shopping quarter in Zürich which presents numerous small and large stores selling clothes, accessories and everyday items. While exploring the area, you can stop for a burger at a takeaway or enjoy a gourmet meal at a nearby restaurant. Cinchona Bar is one such place where you can sit down for coffee or enjoy a few glasses of your favourite drink.
A short pause at Lindenhof park provides some much-needed peace after a day of touring the city of Zürich. Packed with history, this park was the grounds of a Roman fort in the fourth century. Another green space within the city is Platzspitz park, ideal for a short walk or a meet with friends.
