Zurich Hotel & City Guide

Hotels in Zurich

Zurich

Financial Capital

Zurich, which is the largest city in Switzerland with a population of just under 400,000 people is also well known as being one of the biggest financial and banking capitals of the world.

Because of that it is a city that has a thriving economy, incredible natural beauty and has become one of the intellectual capitals of Europe.

The very best way to arrive in Zurich, Switzerland is via train or plane. Zurich Airport is actually the largest in the country and visitors can be in the city center from the airport in under 15 minutes via train. Zurich is also a popular stop on the national train lines as well, with easy reach from Germany, France, and Austria.

Gateway to the Alps

While Zurich is known for being a business center, it is also very well known by tourists as being the true gateway to the Alps as it is the closest city to them and, for many, forms the base for a holiday in the area.

In order to see and feel the Alps when in Zurich, visitors will voyage up the Polybahn which is a 100 year old funicular that stops at the top of a large hill and prives great views of the city and the mountain surrounds. Another popular way to view the Alps is via a ride on the Zurichsee with the help of some of the old steam ships that used to navigate the waters.

Of course, the Alps are really popular with skiers, so many visitors who want a taste of the Swiss Alps while staying in Zurich will be happy to know there is a ski train that operates during the winter, taking visitors out to Flumserberg, a local ski resort, and back in a day.

Historic Sites

Zurich also has a number of historic sites as well, most of these are located on and around Lake Zurich and in the Old Town area of the city. Some favorite museums with tourists include the Museum of Art, the Rietberg Museum and the Beyer Museum of Time.

In and around Zurich

Zurich (German: Zürich) is the largest city in Switzerland and capital of the canton of Zürich. The city is Switzerland's main commercial and cultural centre and sometimes called the “Cultural Capital of Switzerland”.

Zurich is widely considered to be one of the world's global cities. Zurich is located on the north-western end of Lake Zurich (Zürichsee). Numerous excellent hotels will provide for a nice stay with all comforts.

Zurich’s historic city, where you will find a large number of cosy hotels, is located at the banks of the river Limmat. The square Central-Platz is the city’s main traffic hub and starting point for busses and trams that will take you to your hotel in Zurich.

During your stay at a hotel in Zurich we recommend you to look around the Swiss National Museum (Landesmuseum), where you will receive information about the country’s cultural history.

The twin towers of the Großmünster (great minster) are Zurich’s landmark. Zurich hotel guests who are interested in history should visit this ecclesial building, where Ulrich Zwingli initiated the Swiss-German Reformation.

From the minster’s tower you will have a tremendous view over the sights and hotels of Zurich.

Near your Zurich hotel you will be able to experience the mediaeval flair in the city’s old branched alleys.

A short walk will take you from your Zurich hotel to the church Fraumünsterkirche, whose stained glass choir windows, which were designed by Marc Chagall, will surely catch your eye.

If you are staying at a hotel in Zurich’s inner city you will be able to walk along the street Bahnhofstraße to the Lake Zurich.

On your way you will pass the Parade-Platz, a center of financial activity, with the world-headquarters of several Swiss banks and numerous boutiques and hotels.

Coming from Geneva, you will be able to reach your hotel by car via the autobahn A1. Coming from Basel you will need to drive along the autobahn A3.
