Spend Zurich holidays gazing at Impressionist masters at the Kunsthaus Zurich art museum. Or explore the cobbled Altstadt (Old Town) and take snapshots of the Romanesque Grossmnster church. Spend relaxing holidays gliding across Lake Zurich or munching on velvety Swiss chocolates. You'll discover Zurich's newfound trendiness in Zurich-West's boutiques and pumping clubs.
On your first holiday to Zurich, admire the impressive Grossmnster church, the Altstadt's winding alleys and Kunsthaus Zurich's hoard of art works by Surrealist sculptor Giacometti. On a return trip, learn about Dadaism at Cabaret Voltaire or view non-European art in Zurich's Neoclassical Rietberg Museum. Interrupt holiday sightseeing to cruise Lake Zurich or go boutique shopping on high-end Bahnhofstrasse. Snack on crumbly Luxemburgerli macaroons.
Tuck into Zurich favourites like fried rsti potatoes in candlelit bistros by the Limmat River or wood-panelled cafe-restaurants in Zurich's Altstadt. Take smart clothes on your holiday to dine on fusion cuisine in design-conscious restaurants overlooking Lake Zurich. For more upbeat Zurich holidays, head to Zurich-West where world flavours from Japanese sashimi to well-spiced curries top the menu.
Amble along the Limmat River as Zurich starts to twinkle or pull up a chair on a terrace in Zurich's Altstadt for cold beers and people-watching. Relax on Zurich's waterfront in low-key Riesbach or join Zurich's young things on the dancefloor in Zurich-West's ultra-trendy bars and clubs.
Board the train to 2723-foot-high Uetliberg mountain to see Zurich spread out beneath you. Or follow Lake Zurich south on your holiday to medieval Rapperswil, where lanes twist past geranium-covered townhouses to a turreted castle. If you're in Zurich on holiday with the kids, take them to nearby Alpamare for waterslides, wave pools and indoor surfing.
