Flights to Zürich
Discover the perfect destination for a cultural city break
Zürich used to be known as the hub of international banking, but the city has acquired a new, edgier image over the past decade. The industrial area of Zürich-West has become a centre of modern art, avant-garde theatre and lively nightlife, and Zürich has been dubbed as a "New Berlin". Old warehouses host galleries, bars and gourmet restaurants and the new soundscape of old factory workshops varies from jazz to electronic music.
The natural appeal and beauty of Zürich are still there, too. Paddle steamers cruise Lake Zurich, and a walking path on the shore takes you from park to park. The Kunsthaus Zürich museum hosts the world’s largest collection of works by the Swiss sculptor Giacometti, and the Fraumünster abbey has beautiful stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall. If you want to do a bit of shopping, remember to visit the small shops of Niederdorf in the old town and the luxury boutiques on Bahnhofstrasse.
