Zürich, located by the Limmat River at the point where it emerges from the Zürichsee (Lake of Zürich), is a beautiful city with vistas of snowy mountains in the distance and a charming Altstadt (Old Town) made up primarily of medieval churches, guildhalls, and town houses. This rich banking centre and bastion of Swiss-Germanism has actually become cool and found its voice with a vibrant restaurant, art and design scene that offers lively counterpoints to its fascinating history.
