With a proximate location to Switzerland’s compelling financial capital, Opfikon is a city springboard from which to visit some the scenic surroundings. As a district of Zurich’s sprawling state, there is little to entertain visitors in Opfikon as traditional tourists attractions are confined to the sparkling city. A mountainous perimeter provides a picturesque border to this suburb, in which some excellent restaurant and atmospheric bars reside.
In an incredibly short time, Switzerland’s revered financial district can be reached. Zurich offers visitors a rich cultural panorama that includes compelling cathedrals, glittering lakes and staggering natural surroundings. Sail upon Lake Zurich, ascend the twin towers of the gorgeous Grossmunster or simply wander the sinuous streets of a city that combines both the classic and the contemporary.
The compelling collections housed within Zurich’s National Museum allure so many visitors that it boasts the title of Switzerland’s most popular cultural attraction. Permanent and temporary exhibitions cover an enormous breadth of art, archaeology and architecture with fascinating displays that inspire and immerse observers.
A restaurant that is considered to be one of Opfikon’s finest examples of cosmopolitan cuisine is Restaurant L’Unico, a sleek and sophisticated Italian restaurant that specializes in home made pasta. Sample the delectable dishes of linguine or spaghetti smothered in typically Italian ingredients such as garlic, olive oil and truffles.
