Zurich, Switzerland

Zurich Switzerland

Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and  is known as the cultural capital of Switzerland.  The capital of Switzerland is Berne.  Zurich is known as the wealthiest city in Europe.   A very expensive city.   We went shopping one day down the main street.  Any expensive shop you want and it is here…and also of course some wonderful Swiss Watch shops.  All a bit too expensive for me.  But the one thing you can buy here at a low cost is Swiss Chocolate!!!  Great stuff!!  We brought a bunch back with us for our families. 

The city itself is small and very charming.  Great little side streets with restaurants and little mom & pop shops.   You can walk it in a day or two.   Some great sights are the Grossmunster Church, Fraumunster Church, St, Peter’s Church (with the clock face), Old Town, Lake Zurich, Bahnhofstrasse (main shopping street near the train station), and Parade-Platz (where all the main Swiss banks are located).

Zurich is a must visit if you are near.  In the winter the Swiss Alps are not too far for some unreal skiing!   While I was there I did not hear in the the distance any one yelling…Ricola!!

  1. I love Zurich, I lived near there for several months and didn’t want to leave when my work contract came to an end.
