What to see?
With so much history and picturesque sites, Zurich is certainly a traveller’s dream destination. Here are some of our must-see places you can’t miss…
- Located on the west bank of the Limmat, the Fraumünster Church with its green steeple is one of Zurich’s most prominent landmarks. Particularly renowned are the glass windows by Marc Chagall and Augusto Giacometti… be sure to go and have a look!
- Visit the Stadthaus (town hall) located on the left banks of the River Limmat, right alongside the Fraumünster church. Temporary exhibitions are held here, right under iconic the archways. Its elegant multi-level hall boasts a magnificent Italian Renaissance style that we love.
Take to the streets:
- Get out and explore the cityscape and intricate roads that make up this marvellous city. Rennweg is a medieval main road and is today part of the inner-city pedestrian zone of Zürich. It is also one of the main shopping areas in the city.
