Zurich? I Love it! Do you?

Updated on July 29, 2016

Zurich by Night


Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and its main cultural and commercial centre. Situated close to Lake Zurich, nestling against the banks of the Limmat River, the perfect place for holiday properties to rent, Zurich is a hub of culture, business and charm.

The main airport at Zurich lies only 7 miles north of the city. Direct flights from the UK to Zurich take under 2 hours. From the airport you can catch a train to Hauptbanhof the main train station. Alternatively, the airport shuttle regularly stops at the larger hotels.

Not as Cold as you may think.

Shoppers, history lovers and culture vultures will all be enchanted by Zurich.
Summer visitors to Zurich enjoy an average high temperature of 22C, making this city perfect for walkers who will love strolling over low bridges and exploring the cobbled laneways hidden within this very modern and wealthy city.

Getting Around.

In wintertime, the average low temperature sits at 0C. Perhaps winter visitors to Zurich might find it more comfortable to explore using the super efficient public transport system criss crossing the city centre. Combination tickets giving you access to the S Bahn (local trains) as well as trams and busses are available throughout the city. Rumour has it that within the central district of Zurich, you are never further than 150 yards from the next train, bus or tram stop.

History Lesson.

If it is history you are after in Zurich, the Swiss National Museum with its impressive array of military history, ancient relics and Swiss tradition should be at the top of your list. For art lovers, the stunning collection of masterpieces on display at the Zurich Art Gallery is a must see and includes works of Western art dating from the 1600s. If you prefer the beauty of churches, the Fraumunster with its dazzling set of five stained-glass windows designed by Marc Chagall in 1970, and its spire rising so gracefully above Zurich, along with the Great Church or Grossmunster, with the twin spires which are arguably the most recognised landmark in Zurich, are both worth a visit. For those more inclined to shopping than to sightseeing, the exclusive Bahnhofstrasse is great for big spenders and for more budget conscious window shoppers alike.

Zurich is a globally significant centre of finance, but behind the clean lines of business and investment quarters for which the city is so famous, there lies a rich mixture of culture and history sure to captivate holiday makers of all interests and budgets. You can stay in holiday properties to rent, hotels or b and b the choice is yours, but whatever your choice you will not be disappointed with your visit to Zurich
