If you are interested in visiting Europe there are many beautiful places that this region of the world has to offer. One of the most amazing locations that you will find is definitely Zurich in Switzerland. This is one of the wealthiest countries in the world and everyone enjoys a very high quality of life. You can expect that the country is very safe and the people have high cultural and economic standards that are the envy of the entire world. Zurich is well known as the cleanest and most efficient city in Europe and long synonymous with finance and banking.
The top location to go to in this beautiful city is probably Altstadt (the ‘old town’) because it represents a very important part of the folklore of Zurich. The streets and the buildings are immersed in history and the people are friendly and welcoming. There are plenty of great restaurants and stores for you to visit and bring back something for your relatives and friends.
The old town has some of the best looking houses and gardens that have sculptures and fountains that will take your breath away. There are also numerous museums that are all worth visiting too. The opera house is an amazing location that everyone should see and there are always great shows being performed in it. The 2013/2014 season includes the operas Faust and Fidelio whilst on the lead-up to Christmas, Christian Spuck’s ballet, Woyzeck.
If you want to see the most beautiful architectural designs we recommend that you visit the churches in Zurich, especially The Great Church and The Church of Our Lady, both of which have a very unique style and are open for tourists all the time.
If you are bringing your children with you, we advise that you visit the zoological museum. They have an impressive display of all animal species and many interactive features that will make this a day that your children will never forget. Anyone who loves animals will enjoy this place regardless of their age.
Flumserberg is the closest ski-resort, very popular with people from Zurich. Retreat to the right side of the resort if the rest gets busy. With magnificent views over the Walensee, flexible accommodation options and proximity to Zurich, Flumserberg is a perfect destination for a mid-week break.
There’s plenty to keep you busy and drain your wallet. You need to be careful here because this city is expensive. Taxis are very expensive so instead, take the bus or tram and save yourself a ton of money.
