Zurich (City Limits), CH

The city of Zurich is NOT the capital of Switzerland but it’s the largest city in Switzerland and the capital of the canton of Zurich while Bern is the capital of Switzerland.

Impressions

The city of Zurich, a global center for banking and finance, lies at the north end of Lake Zurich in northern Switzerland. The picturesque lanes of the central Altstadt (Old Town), on either side of the Limmat River, reflect its pre-medieval history. Waterfront promenades like the Limmatquai follow the river toward the 17th-century Rathaus (town hall).
