Old City Zurich
Main entrance hotel
Can a cosmopolitan city be charming?
Yes. However, only in exceptional cases. And it’s called Zurich. Some call it the smallest of the big ones. For others it is the biggest among the little ones.
A visit is worthwhile either way: the quality of life is high. The culinary and cultural offer enormous. The view of the lake and mountains overwhelming. History and tradition are omnipresent, especially in the old town.
Zurich is located in the center of Europe and at the foot of the Swiss Alps. The ideal starting point for countless unforgettable excursions. As a major hub, Zurich Airport is directly connected to 170 destinations worldwide.
The city with probably the highest density of events in the world
Zurich's diverse and rich range of events does not need to hide from the really big metropolises: music festivals and concerts, exhibitions, sporting events, cinema, theater, opera - events for all tastes and interests regularly make the Limmat city vibrate.
Four of the highlights in the event calendar: the Zurich Film Festival, the Zurich Openair, the Sechseläuten and the New Year's Eve magic from the Zurich hoteliers.
