ZURICH, DOWNTOWN SWITZERLAND

Grüezi’ – It is with this typical Swiss greeting that we welcome you to Zurich, an international metropolis of many unique facets; a thriving city, financial and industrial centre, the economic and cultural hub of the nation, and the charm of a gentle green Swiss landscape at your doorstep.

Zurich, always a town of revolutionary reformists, philosophers and scholars, has a fascinating history dating from a Neolithic settlement excavated on the little island in the middle of the Limmat River. From the time when the tradesman’s guild obtained equal rights with the nobility and the city joined the Swiss Confederation in the 14th century Zurich has constantly prospered both in economic power and in intellectual liberalism. It is also an important focus of communications.

But with all its bustling activity Zurich is still one of Switzerland’s loveliest cities, and with its carefully cherished traditions it has much to attract and interest the visitor; the classic old town, elegant lakeside, pulsating activity of the Bahnhofstrasse, meandering alleys, world famous museums and intimate galleries.
