Zurich and Zurich Lake

Zurich, the largest city in Switzerland, stretches on both sides of the Limmat, which flows out of Lake Zürich. The Alps can be seen from the city center, background to the lake. Located in the heart of Europe, the city offers all the modern amenities of a cosmopolitan metropolis, without sacrificing its natural side. Public transport is extremely popular in Zürich, where a mixed hub for railways, roads, and air traffic. Zürich Hauptbahnhof (Zürich HB) is the largest and busiest station in Switzerland and is an important railway hub in Europe. Meanwhile, it is a city rich in culture: with more than 50 museums (including the Swiss Rijksmuseum), more than 20 libraries, more than 100 art galleries, as well as concert halls and opera houses. Most of Zürich's sites are located within the area on either side of the Limmat, between the Main railway station and Lake Zürich. The churches and houses of the old town are clustered here, as are the most expensive shops along the famous Bahnhofstrasse. The Lindenhof in the old town is the historical site of the Roman castle, and the later Carolingian Imperial Palace. More information about discovering Zurich is at Zurich Tourism.
