Often mistakenly considered as the capital of Switzerland (which has de jure none), Zurich is the biggest city in Switzerland. Unfortunately, Zurich is no exception when it comes to the generally high Swiss prices. However, there are many things to be admired in walking distance. If you have more time or money, we have another recommendation!
Bahnhofstrasse is probably the most famous shopping street in Zurich. Only exclusive – and thus expensive – shops have a spot there.
As I’m of the opinion that one should have seen Bahnhofstrasse Zurich, here’s a small hint. If you are not in shopping mood or simply want to avoid crowds, go there on a Sunday as the shops will be closed then.
Zurich’s zoo is the most diversified, modern and appropriate to the species I’ve been to so far. However, the entrance fee has a heavy price tag.
So if you are in Zurich during the week, live anticyclical. Visit the zoo during the week when the kids are at school. When families visit the zoo on weekends, check out the shopping street Bahnhofstrasse.
Sprüngli is a café located at the Bahnhofstrasse and definitely a must-go!
Switzerland is known for its amazing chocolate. Sprüngli is probably one of the most famous cafés of the country. If you want to indulge in the taste of chocolate, Sprüngli is the place to go!
Grossmünster is a protestant church in Zurich. The Romanesque style is worth seeing for sure.
Moreover, Grossmünster is a great relic from the early 12th century when construction works began.
Lake Zurich probably is one of the main reasons for why Zurich was chosen as the European city with the highest quality of life.
In winter, there were not many people. However, it is a popular place to spend time at in summer.
Zurich Opera House is a real gem dating back to the late 19th century.
Even if you are not interested in hearing a concert, gain at least an impression of the architecture!
Zurich is not a city of sights, but rather a city of great flair and atmosphere. Thus, Zurich’s Old Town is the place to be!
Moreover, the old town is the place where culture, social life, history and architecture meet. Many shops, bars as well as restaurants can be found in the old town!
