Expensive city. Great stop if going on a ski trip nearby.
I found Zurich too expensive and pretentious for me. It was snowing when I was there and the city is quite beautiful when covered in snow. However, I felt like there are way too many tourists looking to spend money on overpriced brandy things. Although some people might find that to be a good thing, it's just not my cup of tea. i still feel like it could be a cool place to visit for half a day if you are going on a ski trip at the mountains close by.
Insider Tip:If traveling in the winter, make sure you pack warm clothes. Also avoid going there on Sundays because everything (shops and most restaurants) are closed. Only the underground shopping area at the train station is opened and trust me, there isn't much to see there.
