Explore the City Streets, Zürich
You can have a City Tour with the "Classic Trolley" (styled on those of yesteryear) to discover Zurich.
Because the audio taped commentary is available in 8 languages, you will have a far more interesting and comprehensive report solely in the language of your choice.
The tour lasts 2 hours and includes the shopping and financial center, the old town and the main churches
Favorite thing: What is clearly evedent in Zurich is that for first timer, you can hardly miss your direction with a map. The roads are not in networks, because of the mountains, and there are clear and explicit sign posts like this in the pics.
While continuing Walking in the Bahnhof strasse, After a while you will reach the Augustiner Church and Augustiner street..
This is a narrow street with wonderful houses.. Colorful balconies and shops.. Just spend some time to tour around this small road..
Aprroxiamtely in the middle of the Bahnhos strassse.. Around 700 meter to the station..
We strolled around the narrow streets of Zürich for hours, visited the impressive churches from the inside and the outside, and enjoyed a nice walk along Lake Zürich.
I never expected Zürich to be such a pleasant city - so this really was a nice surprise for me!
Fondest memory: Meeting Elisabeth (rebibi), Remo and Sonja (yumyum)!
On both sides of the river, there are so many tiny little alley ways, that open up into beautiful squares. You will be amazed at the beautiful buildings.
I loved this little square with its fountain.
Fondest memory: The Old Town situated across the river (from the train station side) is filled with many 'little' shops. I'd recommend that you take a stroll along the riverfront and just soak in the old world charms of that area. And spend time admiring the old guild houses along the river too. Very nice!
explore the largest city in Switzerland. Zurich aptly promoting itself as the ‘little big city’ with it's historic centre compact enough to be explored on foot.
Fondest memory: The citizens enjoy a high standard of living, and this is evident in the many fashionable and enjoyable bars, cafés and restaurants that fill the Old Town. The ambience is heightened by the large swathes on either side of the River Limmat that are pedestrian-only areas. But for those who find the comfortable burgher lifestyle a little too tame, there are always alternative places to seek out. This is, after all, the city that saw the birth of the artistic movement of Dadaism – the antithesis of conformity.
Favorite thing: Corrie and I at the guilded gates beneath the balcony where Winston Churchill gave his Europe Arise speech 19th September 1946. Some post war pep talk apparently.
