Zurich is known worldwide as being Switzerland’s sophisticated financial capital, but it’s also so much more than that. Fringed by distant mountains and gracing the banks of the winding River Limmat, the international banks and financial institutions add a contemporary edge to the scenes of intricate stained glass windows, cobbled pavements and characteristic spires that reveal glimpses into the city’s rich past. Amble down the Lake Promenade and the winding streets of the Old Town, unearthing the artistic masterpieces of the Kunsthaus, watching operatic perfection at the famed Schauspielhaus, or shopping along Bahnhofstrasse, Switzerland’s answer to the Champs- Élysées.
