    The formalities for travelling to Zurich

    • Currency: you’ll be buying up Swiss chocolates with Swiss francs. They have just about the same value as the Euro. Before you take off, take advantage of the Interchange counters you’ll find at the airport and pick up a few to pay for your first purchases when you land.

What to do in
Zurich ?

Zurich is found in the north of Switzerland, and is a hub of both economic activity and bourgeois living. Here the streets are safe, the shops are chic, and the restaurants are elegant. This makes it a bit difficult to backpack around. But you don’t need to be a billionaire to get a taste of the charm of this German-speaking city. With a young generation of artists and designers making Zurich their home, the city has a definite bohemian vibe. It has also preserved its patrimony and more especially its environment well, offering visitors one of life’s greatest luxuries: good living.

    Zurich is both prosperous and cosmopolitan, and you’ll find all of life's pleasures here. The beauty of the city is only rivalled by its wealth of culture. Luxury brands all have a shop on the main commercial thoroughfares in the centre, as well as in Zurich-West, a former industrial area that’s been taken over by a new generation of creators, artists, shops, artisans, and restaurants.
    But the best feature of this thriving Swiss metropolis is not so much within its walls, but without. The city has fully captured the essence of the extraordinary environment that surrounds it. In Zurich you’ll find a river so clean that locals swim in it, a pristine lake where you can stand up paddle, kayak, water ski or sail, well-managed trails for cyclists and joggers, superbly maintained parks and gardens, and a backdrop so natural you can lose yourself hiking - or perhaps find yourself. In short, Zurich is the perfect place for a bit of natural well-being!

    • Wander the streets and alleyways of Altstadt, the old town. The ambiance is peaceful and the setting picturesque. Neiderhof and Schipfe, its main quarters, are full of gorgeous façades, lovely boutiques, and gourmet restaurants.
    • In Schipfe, see all of Zurich in the blink of an eye by heading to Lindenhof square, a vast esplanade shaded by nearly a hundred lime trees. It sits on the Limmat, the river that flows through the city and historic centre. It's a great viewpoint!
    • From the central station to the lake, stroll down the Bahnhofstrasse, the Champs Élysées of Zurich, and take in the elegant window displays of the biggest names in fashion, as well as watch and jewellery making. Luxury reigns here!
    • Take a tour of the city’s churches - they’re remarkable. Climb up to the top of one of the towers of the Grossmünster Cathedral. Admire the stained glass in Fraumünster, created by Chagall and Giacometti. Set your watch to the Saint-Pierre clock, the largest in Europe.
    • Walk over or around Lake Zurich. Cross it on a sail or row boat. Treat yourself to a little cruise. Picnic along the shores. Stroll along the east bank until you get to China Garten, and enjoy a rare moment of serenity.
    • Inject a bit of culture into your trip by visiting one of the city’s museums. The Swiss National Museum, the Kunsthaus Zürich, the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum für Gestaltung (design and architecture)...there’s truly something for everyone.
    • After the old, the new: head for Zurich-West, the former industrial area that’s now a hotbed for talent. Shops full of vision, bars full of laughter, restaurants full of flavour and nightclubs full of partiers.
    • Float between heaven and earth! The Thermalbad & Spa, the thermal baths of Zurich, have a large indoor pool that’s heated year-round. It’s the perfect place for a day of relaxation in an atmosphere of well-being.
    • Even if you’re an unabashed carnivore, treat yourself to a vegan meal in the oldest vegan restaurant in the world: the Hitl. It’s been open for a full century!
    • Melt with happiness over some of that famous Swiss chocolate. This iconic product is without a doubt the world’s best, and devotees should head for Sprüngli (on Paradeplatz) and Läderach (in Bahnhofstrasse).
