Flights to Zürich

With the age-old joke about the name translating as too rich (zu reich), Switzerland’s biggest city has long been stereotyped as a banking capital, and little else.

And while there is no disputing the wealth of many of its inhabitants – one third of which are expats who have taken one-way flights to Zürich– the diversity throughout is a joy to behold.

The city is home to many of Switzerland’s music, arts and cultural highlights, including Schauspielhaus, one of the most revered theatres in the German-speaking world. There’s also the Opernhaus on Falkenstrasse 1, which regularly stages world-class operatic productions.

But the city doesn’t limit itself to highbrow theatre and opera. There is a wealth of outdoor pursuits and al fresco events for much of the year. Visitors and locals alike can often be found on the enormous Lake Zürich or at one of the many Badi Bars (lidos) dotted along the River Limmat.

It is also a pedestrian-friendly city that’s popular with runners. Its proximity to the Alps means it’s easy to pop out for a day’s skiing in the winter, or perhaps a spot of cycling or hiking in the summer.

Zürich also has a sparkling restaurant scene – in 2014, nine of its restaurants were Michelin-starred, with chefs such as Laurent Eperon and Antonio Colaianni driving this culinary revolution.

In turn, a thriving nightlife scene is boosted every summer by open-air music festivals, the largest of which is the Street Parade, a dance music event that attracts a million people.

Considering its abundant cultural, gastronomic and recreational options, Zürich is ‘too rich’ in more ways than one.

What to do in Zürich

Take an Alpine train tour

The Alps are just a short train ride from Zürich. Generally, tours involve train journeys into the mountain range, though hiking is a wonderful option if the weather is right and you’re feeling adventurous. Pick of the bunch is an organised trip to the ‘Top of Europe’, or Bernese Oberland.

Visit the Schiffbau

What was once a huge factory for ship engines has now been converted into the seat of the Schauspielhaus – a huge theatre, with three separate stages – Box, Matchbox and Schiffbauhalle. It is also home to LaSalle restaurant, the Nietturm lounge and jazz venue Moods.

Where to eat in Zürich

Confiserie Sprüngli (Confectionary)

This famous chocolatier is a Zürich institution. It serves and sells some of the best chocolates in Switzerland, if not the world. Tuck into incredible pralines and truffles, or sit down with a hot chocolate and tasty pastry. The orange cake comes highly recommended.

Stefs Freieck (European)

This intimate, stylishly appointed restaurant is slightly off the beaten track, but it is worth the short tram journey out of the centre. It offers a smart yet laidback atmosphere and contemporary European food, and the chefs are known for keeping the menu fresh and exciting.

Spice – Restaurant Rigiblick (Vegetarian)

Its gorgeous location puts Spice on a plateau all of its own, and the playful cuisine hoists it even higher. Perched on the Zürichberg hillside, the terrace offers unspoiled views of the city and Lake Zürich. On the table, there’s a terrific vegetarian restaurant that even the most fervent of meat eaters would enjoy.

Places to stay in Zürich

Hotel Seehof

This cosy hotel is located close to the Opernhaus, and other attractions such as Bellevue Square and mouth of the Limmat where it joins Lake Zurich. It’s all very cute here, nothing fancy, and guests will enjoy the peace and quiet. The hotel backs on to a lovely square.

Widder Hotel

Nine townhouses were converted to make this boutique hotel, a fact that makes Widder a unique venue. Five painstaking years of restoration and then renovation have created a stay that is both original and hugely impressive, whether you’re staying in a single room or penthouse.

The Dolder Grand

This gorgeous five-star hotel in the hills to the east of the city is quintessentially Swiss. A century-old building given a modern twist upon reopening in 2008, it offers ample opportunity to get the best out of both city life and the lush green fields of the Alpine countryside.
