Welcome to Zurich

Zurich - Switzerland's biggest metropolis - is home to 1.2 million people and is one of the world's biggest tourist destinations. Visitors come to explore the rich culture of the city, from its French and German architecture to its lush nature marked by its Swiss Alps skyline. But it's also a popular place for businesspeople - Zurich is, after all, the country's hub for finance, home to a multitude of major international corporations and the headquarters of the Swiss stock exchange. This also means that many visitors arrive with a hefty expense account, and travel companies often cater to wealthy executives. In effect, it can be a very pricey city to visit, whether you're here for leisure or business.

When visitors are ready to explore the attractions of Zurich, they can get to downtown via the efficient and reliable public transit system. Board a train just outside of the airport and get to the city center within 12 minutes. Tourists who expect to use the transit system often should take advantage of the ZurichCARD option, which covers your fare for either 24 or 72 hours for one flat rate and includes the systems trains, buses, trams, cable cars and boats.

Things to Do in Zurich

A scenic view of buildings in ZurichThis world-class city is home to a vibrant culture and deep-rooted history, both of which guests can explore with a tour of the destination's top attractions. Start your tour of the metropolis with a visit to the historic Fraumunster, a magnificent cathedral that dates back to the 1300s and showcases the stained glass windows of Belarussian-Russian-French artist Marc Chagall. Then make your way to Schiffbau for a look into the industrial past of the city. It was once a factory that produced parts for turbine engines but now serves as a popular three-stage theater. Guests won't want to miss out on the fascinating exhibits of the city's leading institutions, including the Kunsthaus (it has an impressive fine arts collection) and Technorama, which lets you uncover the mysteries of science with interactive displays.

In addition to visiting these popular tourist sites, guests can discover the nightlife of Zurich by walking the streets of downtown after the sun goes down. Begin the evening with a show at the Red Factory, which hosts theater, film and music performances, or watch a world-famous opera production at the Opernhaus. For dinner, grab some regional fare at Swiss Chuchi, Bierhalle Kropf or Restaurant Eisenhof. Before heading back to their Zurich Airport hotels, guests can enjoy a refreshing nightcap at an authentic beer hall such as Bierhalle Wolf or stop by a trendy pub like Bohemia or Widder Bar.
