As soon as the sun is out, Zurich inhabitants make their way for the water. Sitting by the lake or going for a swim – even during their lunch break. A holiday feeling seems to be within reach when mingling with the locals. This is just one of the many examples of what makes Zurich such a special place. People living in Zurich are very fond of their hometown; and with good reason.
It is a creative and diverse place, culturally vibrant and by all means livable. Walking through narrow alleys, enjoying warm summer evenings alongside the river Limmat and soaking in the mood of this city, which is as laid-back as it is vivid. Apart from art galleries, renowned museums and architecture, a burgeoning food scene is to be discovered. Every cuisine in the world as well as local specialties are featured, from fine dining to pop-up eateries, Zurich has a highlight for everyone’s taste.
«What I liked most about Zurich were the people. It was great to meet café and restaurant owners, who would tell me about their hometown. I can well understand why they love their city so much. Everybody I met was so concerned about protecting the environment, using e-bikes, drinking tap water and saving energy. I enjoyed a morning stroll through empty alleys, while Zurich was slowly awakening. The evenings by the river were awesome, breathing crisp air and the view of the mountains in the distance.»
