What's Zurich like?

The largest city in Switzerland, Zurich has been heralded as the city with the highest standard of living, and when you arrive, you’ll see just why. It is clean, elegant, and orderly, and there are myriad things to see and to do. We recommend visiting the old town, where most of the interesting sights and landmarks are situated. Start by visiting Grossmunster, an old Romanesque church, where you can climb to the top of the tower for a breathtaking view of the city. The church even hosts organ concerts some evenings, so be sure to check the door for notices. Shopping in Zurich means a trip to Bahnhoffstrasse, one of the most luxurious shopping streets in the world, which features all of the famous Swiss luxury products. Looking for a Swiss watch? Try Swatch for a budget-friendly purchase, or head to Bucherer for an entirely high-end option. Chocolate-lovers will love the interactive tour (with free samples!) at the new Chocolate Frey visitor center. Visitors staying in Zurich hotels around August first are in for a treat, as this is Swiss National Day. In the evening you will see an incredible array of firework displays, and festivities. Why not find a place to stay near Lake Zurich, the best vantage point for watching the festivities?

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Zurich

It shouldn’t be difficult to get along with the locals in Zurich. They’re friendly and incredibly diverse—one in every three residents hails from outside Switzerland. The official language is German, and although there is a Swiss version, the locals may think you are making fun of them if you attempt to speak it. Fortunately, English is very widely spoken, so you should have no trouble communicating. Getting around whilst staying at your accommodation in Zurich will be a breeze, since the public transport system is not only efficient and clean but also very safe, just like the rest of Zurich. To be like a true local, you should learn to eat like one. In Zurich this means trying the city’s most famous dish: Zurigeschnatzlets, veal in a cream and wine sauce, served with grated potato fried in butter. At, we recommend checking the prices before you make a purchase, because Switzerland may be more expensive than what you are used to. You will enjoy a very different holiday depending on which season you visit. Fortunately, every season has its own character and beauty. Wrap up for the snow in winter, and pack loose clothes and sunblock for the summer!
