Zurich (City Limits), CH

The largest city in Switzerland is a major contemporary art and shopping destination. Important artworks are displayed in the Kunsthaus and the Rietberg Museum, while those who consider shopping an art can hone their skills along Bahnhofstrasse and Niederdorf. Chagall’s stained glass windows in the Fraumunster amaze and Zurich’s 500 clubs and bars, including several in swimming pools, pulse with life ’til the early hours. This city on Lake Zurich has excellent public transit and a free bike rental system.

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).
