Discover Zurich

Business, family visit, premiere at the opera, vernissage in the gallery, shopping or a relaxed stay with Mediterranean flair - Zurich is a worthwhile destination at any time of year.

While the many river and lake resorts are particularly popular in summer, many winter sports resorts near Zurich attract visitors in winter for skiing, sledging or winter hiking.

If you travel to Zurich in April, you can experience the traditional Sechseläuten spring festival, while others dance around the Zurich lake basin in August at the incomparable Street Parade. In October, connoisseurs can sample the latest wine from the region on a hike around Lake Zurich. And if you visit Zurich in December, you will experience a magical Christmas with many Christmas markets, the "Märlitram" and wonderful traditions. Whether spring, summer, autumn or winter: Zurich is beautiful in every season.
Let us advise and accompany you. We look forward to your visit.

A wealth of interesting sights and events of all kinds make Zurich a popular destination for city breaks. The twin spires of the 13th-century Grossmünster tower over the medieval backdrop of the Old Town, over 60 metres high. In the middle of the river stands the baroque town hall with its ornate black marble portal. Cross the historic Münsterbrücke bridge to reach the left side of the Limmat and the Fraumünster church, which is adorned with world-famous windows by Marc Chagall.
