Zurich forms both the cultural and economic centre of Switzerland. Situated at the bottom end of Lake Zurich along the banks of the River Limmat Zurich is a modern day masterpiece, interposed with old world charm, set in a backdrop of dramatic waterways. The Bahnhofstrasse has been voted one of the most beautiful streets in Europe, lined with tranquil pavement cafes, boutique stores and specialist shops, a true shopper's paradise. One of the most charming things about Zurich is the fact it can be explored almost completely on foot, all of the main attractions are within a short walking distance of each other.
Zurich may not seem like the obvious choice when it comes to planning a romantic European vacation. Its identity as a business and financial center doesn't exactly reflect the “holiday idyll.” But snow-capped peaks, crisp alpine lakes, and an exciting nightlife make this Swiss city well worth discovering.

Zurich eguide

Zurich is Switzerland's largest city, with a population of less than 400,000. It is located in the country's central region, snuggled within the Alps on the edge of Lake Zurich. The official language of Zurich and the surrounding areas is German; other regions of Switzerland speak French and Italian.

Most of Zurich's “must-sees” are within the Old Town, clustered around the lakefront. Its churches, museums, and public squares retain a distinctly old-world atmosphere. Zurich's main churches - the Grossmünster Church, Fraumünster Church, and St. Peter's Church – are popular attractions and should not be missed. The Fraumünster Church's striking stained glass windows, designed by famed artist Marc Chagall, and St. Peter's Church's massive clockface (the largest in Europe) are major Zurich highlights.
