Zurich City Reviews

    I found Zurich to be like any other city. Not much happening, the food options seemed limited and there were few sights to see barring a few churches, the clock tower and the lake. I saw most of the city in a few hours.

    Beautiful Zurich

    I spent a spontaneous weekend alone in Zurich, best decision I could have made! It was so beautiful. There were hundreds of boats out on the lake, a lot to see walking around. The chocolate is delicious! VERY hilly, the San Francisco of Switzerland. Also a great spot to take day trips from. Also, very expensive like everywhere in Switzerland.

    Nice atmosphere

    The weather was great and there are many parks and nice walks around the main city area. If you want to save a bit of money Coop supermarket has a great range of 'nice' Swiss food that you can try.

    Zurich and Switzerland in general isn't the cheapest place on earth, so for the low budget traveller it isn't the best place. But Zurich is definitely a worth of a visit. It's a very beautiful city in a shore of a lake and arounded by mountains, so the view is always worth of seeing. There is lot of places to shop around and treat yourself with the best delicatessen, but of course you might need a lot of money for that. But after all very nice and beautiful city and I enjoyed of my staying.

    Zurich was nice but by the time I got there it was another town with another river to say. The Lake is absolutely beautiful but their is not a whole lot to do. This would be a great day trip if you were close enough. Also, I would recommend taking train ride through Switzerland as I went from Salzburg to Zurich and it was absolutely beautiful.
