ZurichThe hub of Switzerland split by the Limmat River.
Zurich is the financial capital of Switzerland and one of the most expensive cities in the world.
But with its lakeside location, stunning mountain backdrop and lively cultural scene, Zurich is worth every penny. The city center is small and easy to navigate on foot, with a lively mix of high-end shopping streets, historical squares and cultural institutions. Be sure to check out the Grossmünster cathedral, Fraumünster church and Bahnhofstrasse – one of the most expensive shopping streets in the world. There’s also no shortage of things to do in the surrounding area, from hiking and skiing in the Alps to exploring the picturesque villages and vineyards of the Swiss countryside.
