Zürich - the gateway to your Alpine adventure in Switzerland...........



Alpine adventure in Switzerland

Make some memorable memories in Switzerland. In winter, around 150 ski resorts, and more than 5,500km of cross-country ski trails await you. When pastures turn green, grab your boots and keep exploring Switzerland's ravishing landscapes: glittering lakes, glacier-encrusted mountains and picturesque towns.


Zurich  - Recognized as one of the world's most livable cities, Zürich is more than a financial centre and reveals a rich culture accented by numerous opportunities for fine dining, nighttime entertainment, shopping and much more. The cosmopolitan city by the water combines creative urban life with nature in all its glory. Zurich is abuzz with activity day and night with its countless events, diverse museums, its own food festival and Switzerland’s most vibrant nightlife. And if you’re after rest and relaxation, you can be in the Swiss mountains in less than an hour. Admire the famous stained-glass windows of the Fraumünster Church during a stroll through the picturesque Old Town, then enjoy the fresh breeze by Lake Zürich before savouring a hot chocolate at a terrace. Whether you prefer the outdoors or the dance floor of a trendy nightclub, there is not much you cannot find in Zurich.         Book here for Zurich Hotels

Zurich is Switzerland’s centre of economic life and education. Located in the heart of Europe, the city offers all the modern amenities of a cosmopolitan metropolis, without sacrificing its natural side. Zurich has for years ranked among the world’s top cities in terms of quality of life. It is a boutique city that offers everything that implies, albeit in a small and exquisite format.

Zurich is avant-garde: it was not only home to Dada, but also the place where the Freitag bag and world-renowned Helvetica typeface originated. Researchers at the revered Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and companies such as Google and Disney Research produce one innovation after the next. Creativity is also in abundance thanks to one of the biggest universities in Europe devoted to the arts – Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) – while establishments such as the Kunsthaus Zürich, Haus Konstruktiv and Museum für Gestaltung ensure that it all doesn’t fall into oblivion.

Zurich was already a prosperous centre of commerce in the Early Middle Ages. The 1519 Reformation gave the economy such a boost that the city rapidly became Switzerland’s financial centre. This has remained unchanged to the present day and is why you’ll find the Swiss National Bank in Zurich along with the world-famous Bahnhofstrasse, one of the most luxurious shopping strips around.
