Zurich is the financial centre of Switzerland and is known worldwide for its banking establishments. It is also famed for being incredibly clean and efficient and for offering a high quality of life for those people that live there.
Furthermore, it is the first stop for many tourists who are entering Switzerland for the very first time. However, if you ask someone who has never visited the city before to name a place to visit as a tourist, they would probably struggle.
That is not to say that Zurich has little to enjoy outside of the glitzy world of international banking, far from it. Zurich has masses of appeal for a wide range of varied travellers.
If you’re a fan of history or architecture then there is plenty to see in the area of gothic spires and towering clock towers. If it’s culture you’re after then Zurich has universities and museums enough to keep you busy throughout your stay. Not to mention the fact that the city is (or at least was) called home by 21 winners of the Nobel Prize.
If you’re a food buff then you’ll certainly enjoy some of the world’s best restaurants that are located in the city, whilst the younger visitor will appreciate Zurich’s reputation as a centre for club culture.
