Zurich, the largest city in Switzerland and a hub for business, transport, and tourism was originally founded by the Romans, and has been transformed over thousands of years to become one of the best-known destinations in the world for a city break. It has many art museums, galleries, and local landmarks that attract visitors of all nationalities. The best months to visit are May to September when the warmer half of the year occurs, although the city is open all year round.

Top Sightseeing Attractions in Zurich
    •    Zurich Zoo opened in 1929 and currently has over 200 species of animals from all around the world. It is an ideal place to visit as a family because of the emphasis of educating children about animals and nature. The zoo is open every day of the year and tickets can be bought online here.
    •    The Botanical Gardens house over 15,000 species of plants from all over the world. More than 3 million plants, flowers, and trees from all over the world including Africa, are worth walking around for anyone with an interest in horticulture.
    •    Anyone who enjoys museums should first head to the Zurich Museum of Art. It holds the largest collection of modern art in the world as well as a large library collection of photos.
    •     To learn about the cultural and historical history of Switzerland, visit the national museum that is located near Platzspitz Park, also worth a visit because of its beautiful grounds.
    •    A full day should be spent exploring the side streets of the old town. There are many small shops to browse through and local cafes to sit in and watch the world go by. Also take some time to visit the Lindenhofplatz which gives a panoramic view over the city and some marvellous landscape photo opportunities.
    •    Also within the old town is the Grossmunster church. It dates from the 12th century and displays marvellous examples of architectural influences. The two towers serve as a major landmark in the region.
    •    The Bahnhofstrasse is a large street with some very pricy and upmarket stores. If your budget has no limit, rummaging through the items for sale will be fun but alternatively, you can also settle for a bit of window-shopping.
