Why Go on a Tour of Zurich

Surrounded by the picturesque panoramas of dense forests and gorgeous mountains, the mesmerizing Swiss city of Zurich is the largest hub in the country. In fact, Zurich can't be called a huge metropolis but still holds the top positions in terms of the quality of life and its high costs. Despite being the financial capital of Switzerland, the city managed to preserve the medieval charm that allures travelers from all over the world.

On the rights of a developed tourist hub, Zurich is full of attractions for all tastes which the city is ready to kindly share with all adventure seekers. The breathing history of the ancient cathedrals and the quirks of the modern art objects, rich museum collections and avant-garde theatres, grandiose beauty of the Alpine landscapes and rampant street festivals - for sure, the impressions of your Zurich trip will be just overwhelming.

The best starting point of your Zurich walking tour is traditionally the Old Town, the streets of which still keep the memory of its historic events. Get inspired by the four main religious edifices in Zurich: the St. Peter's Church, the only baroque church in the city with the huge tower clock; the former female abbey Fraumunster built in the 9th century and boasting the masterpieces of Marc Chagall; the Romanesque Grossmunster stately towering the city; and the protestant 13-century Predigerkirche with mind-blowing vaults.

Speaking about some other prominent attractions, one more pride of Zurich citizens is its museums. Set off on a fascinating journey into the local history in the Swiss National Museum, and get the real aesthetic pleasure in the Kunsthaus, which contains masterpieces of Picasso, Rubens, Van Gogh, and Dali as well as explore the halls of Rietberg dedicated to non-European art.

Apart from exploring the city's cultural diversity, don't miss the chance to taste as many Swiss desserts as you can and organize an extensive shopping tour. Moreover, Zurich is the gateway to the famous ski resorts like Engelberg, Atzmaennig and more, which means that you may spice up your Zurich exploration with an active holiday in the stunning Alps.
