About Zurich

Zürich is world-famous as a city of global finance. Because of the many verdant trees on the banks of Lake Zürich and the Limmat River, it is also known as the “Garden City”. Even though Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland, it still exudes a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Grossmünster (the Zürich Cathedral), Fraumünster (the Church of Our Lady), the Swiss National Museum, and the fine arts museum, the Kunsthaus Zürich speak to this city's enchanting humanistic culture. Bahnhofstrasse is the city’s main downtown shopping street and represents avant-garde fashion, with many shopping centers and high-end boutiques lined up on either side of the street. Heading south along Bahnhofstrasse, you will come to the wide Lake Zürich. During daylight hours, white swans and ducks can be seen floating on the lake. Wild and free, it is a harmonious scene to behold.

Located on the north side of the Zurich station, the Swiss National Museum mimics the construction of the Baden city gate. The building itself is quite stylish, like a medieval castle. It shows the Swiss culture from prehistoric civilization to modern society. Especially the exhibits of the Middle Ages and prehistoric civilizations are worth seeing. The Swiss National Museum has a total of four themed exhibitions, including historical exhibitions, galleries, Swiss home furnishing exhibitions and medieval knight culture exhibitions.

The lake also has a special science brand for people to recognize waterfowl. Swan and wild ducks will swim to the shore from time to time to eat for tourists.

Featured Neighborhood

Bahnhofstrasse is located on the west side of the Limmat River, stretching from the Zurich train station to the Bourkeley Square on the shores of Lake Zurich. This is one of the world famous shopping streets, and is the same as New York's Fifth Avenue. It is also a place not to be missed by anyone coming to Zurich. All the precious brands and goods you can imagine can be found here, and the products are well-made and of high quality. If you catch up with discounts, the discounts on many big names are so low that you can't imagine.

The Zurich Cathedral is located on the Limmat River, opposite the Church of Our Lady. Its unique twin towers have become a symbol of Zurich, blending Romanesque, post-gothic and neo-gothic styles. The founder of the Zurich Cathedral is the famous Karl the Great. After the rebuilding in the 11th-13th centuries, you can see the statue of Carl the Great on the South Tower, but this is a replica, and the authentic collection is in the underground of the church. Within the hall.
