Zurich

Big Small Town
The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks. The medieval city often surprises visitors with its trendy neighborhoods and natural beauty. Located on Lake Zurich, with easy access to skiing in the Swiss Alps, the city serves as an ideal destination for nature lovers. Zurich mixes old and new: it's not uncommon to catch a Zurich banker on a segway speeding past medieval church steeples in the historical old town. Host to Europe's largest annual street party, Zurich has a buzzing nightlife to match. Use our custom trip planner: Zurich and all its delights await.
