Sightseeing in Zurich

The most important sights such as the Old Town, Bahnhofstrasse, Grossmünster church and Lake Zurich are all based in Zurich’s town center. They are all reached within a three-hour walk or can be accessed by public transport. Culture lovers will enjoy a visit to the museum, Opera House, Schauspielhaus (municipal theater) or Tonhalle (concert hall). Nature fans can take a trip to Zurich’s very own Uetliberg "mountain", visit the zoo or take a boat to Rapperswil.

The Tonhalle Zurich is renowned worldwide as a concert hall with excellent acoustics.
