    My trip to Zurich

    It's a very organized and expensive city, with everything in place and educated citizens (even those who don't speak English will try to help you, lol). Unfortunately there isn't much to see there (for free), except those beautiful mountains far away which you will be able to see covered in snow if you visit it during winter.

    Insider Tip:Public transportation is expensive and stores don't open at sundays so use your legs (if you can) and buy whatever you need before the weekend!

    Best thing to do in Zurich, top view of the city

    I love to go to the Lindenhof garden. At there, you can see the stunning view of the city (three churchs, the lake, the mountain,etc..) Dont' miss it! Then, you can also take a walk on the tourist route as suggested in the tourist guide map, that's also cool! During you walk, you can take a break and have a perfect cup of coffee at Schwarzenbach Kolonialwaren. And before you go back home, go to the COOP to buy chocolate for your friends!

    I went to Zurich with a friend. It was a pretty city, especially the older end of town. But due to the cost there was not much for students to do there. I was "over" the city by the end of our first day.

    Insider Tip:Get a tram pass. My friend and I did not (for whatever reason) and I felt I could have gotten more out of the city if I had done that.

    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.
