WHAT WE LOVE

The beautiful city of Zurich is an unmissable stop on your Switzerland tour! It's home to century-old architecture, luxury malls, and pre-medieval history! To get a glimpse of the old town, head up Lindenhof Hill to see amazing views of the city! You can also opt to cruise along Lake Zurich for something more close up. Some must-see hotspots in the city include the Fraumunster Church and its stunning stained glass windows, and the city's shopping haven - Bahnhofstrasse! If you prefer something more lowkey, a hike up Mount Uetliberg where you will get fantastic views of the city from the famous Swiss Alps!
