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 whom 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 theaters 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 theater 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

Scale Uetliberg Mountain

Towering over the city is the lush green mountain of Uetliberg. Simply driving out and enjoying a picnic while taking in the incredible views of the city is one way of doing it. The adventurous could take on the Planet Trail from Uetliberg to Felsenegg, a curious two-hour trek that shows the planets of our solar system at a scale of 1:1 billion.

See the Fraumünster Church

This Gothic church is a Zürich landmark, largely owing to the fact that the stunning stained glass windows on the north side of the church were designed by Augusto Giacometti and the rosette in the southern transept is the work of Marc Chagall. Meanwhile, Paul Bodmer designed a series of frescos in the cloister area.

Zürich is a city that’s great to explore by foot, which makes its free walking tours all the more enticing.

See Free Walk Zürich, a company that arranges free walks around the city of Zürich, for tour dates and details. The tour of downtown starts at Paradeplatz.
