Save Place
The tree-lined Utoquai and Arboretum at Enge offer excellent views of Lake Zurich and the snow-capped Alps, but the iconic spot for lake-gazing is at the Bürkliterrasse, with its statue of Zeus and Ganymede and straight-shot view of the Alps. ...

Grossmünsterplatz, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
Strolling along the Limmat river we saw this grand Romanesque church. Unfortunately we did not have the time to go inside.
Save Place
Limmatquai 144, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
The terrace at ETH Zurich—where Einstein was an alum—lords high above the city for catch-your-breath views beyond to the lake and the Alps. A number of trams will take you to the terrace, but the most fun way to get there is on the fire-engine red...
Save Place
Münsterbrücke, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
I love the bicycle, and cycling is an activity I try to do in every single place that I visit. There is nothing like exploring a city on a bike, although in some places this can be a challenge. Zurich, Switzerland, has made it incredibly easy to...

Mühlebach, 8008 Zürich, Switzerland
Sunset dinner with friends along the lake.
Save Place
The quaint, charming Rindermarkt is home to the Oepfelchammer, the city's oldest preserved pub. It serves terrific local wines in an all-wood setting with patrons’ names carved into the walls.
Save Place
ETH Zürich, Rämistrasse 101, 8092 Zürich, Switzerland
With its ornate Neo-Baroque Opera House, its stately Medieval guild halls, and its numerous grand churches that pierce the city’s low-slung skyline, Zurich has no shortage of beautiful architecture. And for the most part, it’s resisted...
Save Place
Rindermarkt, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
There's no better place to get lost in Zurich than in the cobblestoned Niederdorf. Its real gems are its quaint side streets, like the Rindermarkt, home to the city’s last gas-powered street lamps and the Oepfelchammer, the city’s oldest preserved...
Save Place
Schanzengraben, Zürich, Switzerland
The Limmat River and Lake Zurich might be the showstoppers, but it would be a pity to overlook the charming Schanzengraben Canal. Built as a city fortification system in the 17th century, the canal is now lined with wooden boardwalks and sandstone...
Save Place
Lindenhof, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
It’s a bit of a climb up to this green oasis in the Altstadt, once home to a Roman fort and now a serene park, but the excellent views of the Limmat River and the city’s right bank—including a prime photo-op of Grossmünster Church—make it well...
Save Place
Schiffbaustrasse 4, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland
The Schiffbau, a renovated shipbuilding factory, is home to the glamorous restaurant LaSalle, the popular jazz club Moods, and this stunningly chic bar, which sits atop the 1892 brick structure in a striking glass cube. The modern-day clubhouse...
Save Place
Seestrasse 395, 8038 Zürich, Switzerland
This silk mill turned cultural center on Lake Zurich’s left bank hosts over a hundred concerts, parties and festivals a year and is home to 60 art studios. It’s also a popular bar, especially come summer, when locals flock to the communal outdoor...
Save Place
Prime Tower, Hardstrasse 201, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland
The owners of this bi-level bar in the Prime Tower took great pains to create its visually stunning speakeasy-style décor: the impressive 80-year-old wooden bar and six tons of subway tiles were shipped from New York City. On a recent evening,...
Save Place
Rennweg, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
In the Middle Ages, it was gently sloping Rennweg that served as the city’s main shopping street and its widest. (Bahnhofstrasse? Back then the now tony street—one of the world’s most exclusive—was a moat known not charmingly as Fröschengraben “...
Save Place
Paradepl., 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
The Street Parade takes place in Zurich, Switzerland. Comparable to Berlin's Love Parade, the Street Parade is the largest annual event in Zurich. It proceeds along the side of Lake Zurich on the second Saturday of August. I was lucky to witness...

6410 Schwyz, Switzerland
An hour outside of Zurich is Mount Rigi, one of the most stunning places I've ever seen. Departing from Zurich on a day tour, we drove by bus to Lucerne where we were lead to a cable car depot at the foothill of the mountain before continuing...
Save Place
Lucerne, Switzerland
Throughout Luzern, so many of the buildings have crazy, wild paintings all over them. Loving it! Wish more buildings in Brisbane were like this!
