From its towering cathedrals to its basement beer halls, Zurich is a city where centuries of history intermingle with a population that enjoys living in the present. A visit to Zurich will give you a taste of Swiss German cuisine and culture as you kick off your holiday in Switzerland.
Travellers from Edinburgh will see much that they recognise from home in Switzerland’s largest city, a financial centre that knows how to enjoy itself. Even its hilly relief will be familiar, from the riverside peak of the Lindenhof park in the city centre to the Üetliberg mountain just outside of town. Lake Zurich is somewhat calmer than the chilly North Sea, but that just makes it all the better to enjoy a slow cruise along its shores and take in the sights.
Zurich offers no shortage of options to explore. Relax in one of its badis, riverside bars where you can take a dip in their swimming pools during a daytime visit or enjoy traditional Swiss fare in the old guild halls. Centuries of Swiss culture is on display in the galleries of the Swiss National Museum and the Kunsthaus, the city’s sweeping art gallery. Enjoy the medieval architecture and lofty spires of the Grossmünster and Fraumünster cathedrals. Discover all this and more on your visit to Zurich when you book your tickets from Edinburgh with SWISS.
