Zurich's History

Nowadays, Zurich is a vibrant hub of culture and business. Over the centuries, the region has developed from a small Roman customs post into a world-renowned tourist destination. Traces of the past invite visitors to explore the over 2,000-year-old history of the Old Town, encompassing, among other things, the Romans, the guilds and Zwingli.
