Things to Do in Zurich

Want to know some of the standout things to do in Zurich? Then have a look through our handpicked suggestions below...

1. Amble Around Altstadt

The Old Town is the perfect place to walk around aimlessly. Whichever direction you head in, you’ll find a boutique, a café, or some sort of impressive example of the city’s architecture.

2. Grossmunster or Fraumunster?

We couldn’t choose between Chagal’s glass windows in Fraumunster or Grossmunster’s views over the Old Town… neither should you… so go and see both!

3. Swing by the Swiss National Museum

At first glance, you’d think the Swiss National Museum was a fairytale castle, all spires and twiddly bits. Inside, however, there's the opportunity to learn more about Switzerland’s fascinating history.

4. Buy Out the Bahnhofstrasse

Shop 'til you drop… literally! The Bahnhofstrasse shopping street extends from the train station to the lake. But be careful, your wallet will certainly suffer with so many fabulous shops to try out.

5. Love it Up at the Zurich Street Parade

Every summer this massive parade of dance music attracts some of the biggest crowds in Europe. The message it promotes is a good one, too: Love, Peace, Liberty, Generosity and Tolerance.
