The amazing capital of the canton of Zurich showcasing beauty
When you land with your SWISS flight in Zurich, open up for some serious enchantment. The medieval old part of town, situated left and right of the Limmat river and of Lake Zurich, may make you feel like having landed in a town right out of Grimm’s fairytales. Stroll through quaint back-alleys, see the old houses from the 14th and 15th century and lively open spaces with grand old churches. The beautiful renaissance style Rathaus, the town hall, can be found on the right side of the river. The mighty cathedral that has been erected in early medieval romanic style is also in this area of town. Across the river is the Frauenmünsterkirche, the church of the convent that once ruled Zurich. Some of the glass windows have been created by Marc Chagall. The Lindenhof offers a good view over the city and has its own legend: In medieval times the women of Zurich disguised themselves as soldiers and posed on the Lindenhof as an army. They fooled a besieging army, which retreated and left Zurich unconquered.
Zurich is one of the major financial centers of the world, but Zurich also has a sweet tooth: the world famous Swiss chocolate maker Sprüngli comes from here. To get a good overview over the city, take a ride with the hundred-year-old Polybahn up to the Polyterrasse, the location of the University of Zurich. You will see the city beneath you, embedded in the Swiss Alps. They provide the town with the chance to go hiking, climbing or mountain biking in the beautiful landscape. Skiing, snowboarding or sleigh riding in the mountains is the winter entertainment of the locals. Try some delicacies of the area like “Zürcher Geschnetzeltes” or the “Zürcher Zouftschriibertopf “.
