Essential Zurich Discovery

Essential Zurich Discovery

Zurich’s authenticity is one of its greatest draws. Amidst its historic charm lie the hallmarks of a modern city, with all the comforts and advancements you’d expect. Visitors can enjoy cultural experiences, from world-class museums to avant-garde galleries, fantastic Michelin-starred restaurants, a vibrant social scene, and the beauty of Lake Zurich. What truly sets Zurich apart from a typical European city is its ability to retain an authentic lifestyle that isn’t crafted for travelers but for the pleasure of its inhabitants. The city’s very central location offers endless possibilities for day trips –  for example, Basel, the Rhine Falls, or Appenzell are just an hour away. We have crafted a four day sample itinerary to inspire you to stay in Zurich for longer. Everything is fully customizable and this is for guideline only.
