Start by exploring the Zurich Old Town, the heart of the city, and by far the most picturesque. It spans both sides of the Limmat river, and the best way to appreciate the water views is to wander along the pedestrian-only Limmatquai.
There are four noteworthy churches that are great places to visit, and for the shoppers, one of the best things to do in Zurich is to get lost and wander down some of the quaint side streets to find a hidden coffee shop or artisan boutique.
Head over to one of the most expensive streets in the world. Bahnhofstrasse one of the most famous Zurich attractions has a storefront for all the most famous high-end designers and brands such as Tiffany and Louis Vuitton. If you love luxury goods, bring your credit card!
Hop on a lake cruise to get a full appreciation for Lake Zurich, and the city views from the water. Step back in time at Cafe Schober, a gorgeous eatery on Napfgasse where you’ll find some of the best chocolate and pastry delights!
By foot: Zurich is not a large city, so you can get around easily on foot.
Trams/trains: That said, there are trams and trains to take you nearly anywhere in the city you want to go.
