Holidays in Zurich

Expect the unexpected on holidays in Zurich, as you uncover the hidden treasures that lie beyond the squeaky clean image. Offering a unique mix of culture, nature and adventure - with world-class galleries, waterfront gardens and a snow-covered backdrop.

It won’t take long to realise that alongside the pulsating financial hub and 2000 year old Altstadt lie streetwise hangouts and once derelict buildings that have been given a new lease of life. By day the picturesque old town is a shopper’s paradise - meander through the maze of ancient alleyways and discover hidden boutiques and timeless architecture. Once the sun sets expect a different vibe, as street artists, bars and restaurants introduce a fresh element of colour and excitement.
