Lake Zürich

To enjoy this lake, which snakes past the Pfannenstiel in the east of the city, to Albis chain in the west, you could walk the three-kilometre promenade which begins at Bellevue and extends all the way to Tiefenbrunnen. This is just one of the many walkways created around the shores of the lake since the 80s. There are many ways to access the lake to enjoy the cool breeze, take a cruise or the sights of the hundreds of yachts at Uetliberg in the summer.

Grossmuenster Grossmuenster
Grossmünster

Originally a monastic church, this Romanesque church with its two towers was built from the 12th century, over a period of about a hundred years. The Grossmünster is one of Zurich’s most prominent landmarks, and served as ground zero when the Reformation in Switzerland was initiated by Huldrych Zwingli, and in 1523 the church broke away from the papacy. The medieval architecture of the church as well as the museum inside and other facets like the crypt, which is the oldest part of the building, make it a worthwhile visit while in Zurich.

Swiss National Museum

A great way to take in the history and culture of the Swiss, is to visit this museum which holds the largest collection of historical artefacts in Switzerland.  Housed in a Renaissance Revival palace dating back to 1898, visitors will find artefacts, pottery and prehistoric weapon tools from medieval times, all through to the 20th Century, Gothic art, as well as carved altars, wooden images and triptychs from churches and chapels around the country.  There are also collections from Zurich’s old armoury, and Swiss art movements in a gallery.

Zurich Cuisine​

With influences from Germany, France and even northern Italy, Swiss cuisine is delicious and usually has bases of potatoes, Swiss cheeses, and other traditional Swiss ingredients.

A few you might encounter while in Zurich include the Swiss fondue, which consists of melted cheese, garlic and wine usually served in a communal container and used as a dip for olives, bread, onions and pickles. 

There is also the Zurich ragout, which is a white sauce of white wine and mushrooms and a variety of flavourings. It is usually served with the popular rösti.

Another dish is the Zürcher Geschnetzeltes, a Zürich style sliced meat made usually of veal or veal liver in addition to cream, onions, white wine and brown sauce and served with rice, noodles, or rösti.
