Zurich is about business...but not all about business! It lies in the heart of Europe and at the center of Switzerland and attracts guests from all over the world. Its multicultural flair and the variety of leisure activities offers a unique mix of discovery, pleasure, nature and culture.

Sitting on the northern shore of Lake Zurich, the city offers the finest culinary highlights, unlimited shopping pleasures, events and countless green oases in the center of the city to tempt guests to linger and enjoy. Zürich boasts the highest density of clubs in Switzerland where there are no official closing times. At Zürich University or the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich the ETH Zürich is today associated with 21 Nobel prizewinners.

Zurich’s shopping mile has contributed largely to the city's reputation as a mecca for shoppers and is a top address for international fashion labels, jewelry and watches. The city alone is home to over 50 museums, some 14 of which are devoted to art.

Recreational activities range from a visit to the riverside and lakeside bathing areas in the very heart of the city, to a spectacular hike on the Uetliberg mountain. In the summer, the banks of Zürich’s rivers and lake are buzzing with activity. Here, everyone from street artists to party-goers to business executives can be found enjoying the sun. With no fewer than 40 swimming facilities – 18 of them outside in the open air, including on the lake and by the river – Zürich has the highest density of public bathing areas in the world.

New Things To Do

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Snowmobiling

    Snowmobiling began to take off in the 1950's as lightweight design emerged. At first, snowmobiling was a topic of dispute, because snowmobilers like to take advantage of the flexibility of their machines to travel off-road, thereby disrupting otherwise pristine environments. Others objected to snowmobilers because their machines were noisy and polluted the environment.
