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.

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.
