Start your trip with a walk along the Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich’s central shopping district lined with historic buildings, fountains and a host of exclusive retailers.

Afterwards, ride a tram to the Old Town and sip coffee in cafes once frequented by some of history’s greatest writers and artists. Once refreshed, you can then go and see their work first-hand in the Museum of Fine Art.

Reasons to visit Zurich

Discover Zurich's Old Town

Albert Einstein, composer Richard Wagner and writer James Joyce all called Zurich home at some point in their lives. Discover the world they knew with a tour of the city’s atmospheric Old Town, which is beautifully preserved and largely unspoiled. You’ll wind your way through storied streets to discover treasures around every corner.

Straddling the Limmat River, a walking tour around the Aldstadt will reveal the stories behind some of the city’s finest landmarks, including the famed Fraumünster church. Niederdorf features cosy coffee shops and one-off boutiques, while Bahnhofstrasse offers more glamorous retail therapy.

Soak up the culture

The scene of around 300 performances each year, Zurich Opera House has been dazzling audiences since 1891. One of the finest venues of its kind anywhere in the world, it’s worth looking ahead to see if your flight to Zurich coincides with a show.

The city’s other key cultural institutions include the Kunsthaus Zurich art museum, the Schauspielhaus theatre and the Tonhalle concert hall. The Zurich Festival, which takes place every two years, brings these venues together in a glorious celebration of the city’s rich culture.
