What you need to know about Zürich

Zürich is an endlessly appealing mix of culture and creativity, unflappable Swiss efficiency and a beautiful lakeside setting in the foothills of the Alps. It may be Switzerland’s wealthiest metropolis and the centre of the country’s finance and banking industries, but it’s also a city that’s easy to live in, with a beautifully preserved Old Town full of winding lanes, stunning churches, and gorgeous riverside walks.
