ZURICH

ZURICH

It’s hard to believe that a city known as the financial centre of banking can be as dreamy as a resort town. Although Zürich holds glassy modern skyscrapers—like many of the spectacular cities in Switzerland—it is surrounded by snow capped mountains. The city is a true jewel, decorated with both the glory of yesteryear and today’s rising urbanisation.

SIGHTSEEING

Grossmünster Church

 

This Romanesque-style church is one of the three biggest cathedrals in Zürich.  Once glance at this church and you’ll get a sense of the classical era. It’s located on the banks of the Limmat River.

Fraumunster Abbey

 

Built in the typical Romanesque-style, this church is famous for its frescoes painted by Paul Bodmer. The 5 large stained glass windows were designed by artist Marc Chagall and installed in the 1970s.

St. Peter Church

 

Located on Lindenhof Hill, amid the historic centre of Zürich, this church features a striking giant clock face. The clock is amongst the largest in Europe with a diameter of approximately 8.7 metres, allowing all citizens a chance to see the time.

SHOPPING

Lindenhof

 

This neighborhood has plenty of fun gifts and souvenirs. For example the Cow doll that is a symbol of Switzerland and Swiss Army Knives for boys by either Victorinox or Wenger. There are also several brands of delicious (and addictive) chocolates, but the most famous are Lindt, Toblerone and Nestlé.

Bahnhofstrasse

 

This is a spectacular shopping area that includes some of the world’s most luxurious brands. There are fine jewellery stores and luxury hotels which line both sides of the street. Anyone with the pocketbook and taste for the finer things in life will have a blast strolling here.

EATING

Uto Kulm Restaurant

 

This restaurant is located in the Uto Kulm Hotel. The menu is extensive, and that is even before the wine pairings. Here, your meal comes with beautiful scenery: the image of Zürich with its tall buildings interspersed with green spaces, the crooked lines of the lakes framed by the alps, and of course the open sky.
More Info : Open daily from 8:00 – 12:00 hrs.
