What To Expect

Lake Zurich
The focal point of Zürich, and a favorite playground for tourists and locals is the long Lake Zürich. The entire shore is lined with promenades and parks, where local residents catch the sun, jog, picnic, and swim in the lake. Lake Zürich, also called Lake of Zürich is a Swiss lake extending southeast from the city of Zürich. It lies at an altitude of 1,332 feet (406 m) and has an area of about 34 square miles (88 square km) its extreme length is 18 miles (29 km), maximum breadth 2 1/2 miles, and maximum depth 469 feet. The Linth River flows into it and emerges as the Limmat. The greater portion of the lake is in the canton of Zürich, but 8 square miles are in Schwyz and 4 square miles in Sankt Gallen. The banks rise in gentle slopes, covered with vineyards and orchards, to hills with views of the Alps to the south.

Enjoy half an hour free time at Niederdorf. Your driver will try to drop you as close to Niederdorf as possible. It's a pedestrian area and cars don't enter inside. In the midst of this modern financial powerhouse of a city is a neighborhood filled with historic charm, its narrow streets rising steeply on the east side of the river. The Niederdorf area is one of the medieval streets and squares, a lively place to visit, with boutiques, restaurants, and cafés.
This area was headquarters of the Lombard money-changers in the 14th and 15th centuries. There are many houses with rooms furnished in Renaissance style. On Spiegelgasse, at number 17, is a house where Lenin lived in 1917
The street Spiegelgasse runs east into the Neumarkt, where you'll find the Shoemakers' Guild House, now a theater.

Zürich's "Main Street" is the busy pedestrianized Bahnhofstrasse, stretching from the main train station (bahnhof) to the Bürkliplatz at the head of the lake. The 1,200-meter street is one of the most attractive shopping streets in Europe, enlivened by fountains, public art, trees, and distinguished buildings.

Although many of the shops that line it are filled with furs, fashions, jewelry, and other high-end goods, their smartly decked windows and the buildings themselves make it a popular place for everyone to stroll. The middle section of the street was built in 1867 after the filling in of an old moat, the Fröschengraben; the parts towards the lake and the station were built a few years later. Enjoy 30 Min free time for shopping at this amazing Street.

Fraumunster Church
Often mistranslated to Church of Our Lady, the name of the protestant Fraumünster actually means Women's Church, referring to the founding of an abbey here in 853 for aristocratic women of Europe by the Emperor Ludwig for his daughter, Hildegard. Until the high Middle Ages, the head of the convent was also governor of the city.

The church is a three-aisled, pillared basilica with a Gothic nave built from the 13th to the 15th centuries, a Romanesque chancel, and an Early Gothic transept with high vaulting. In the undercroft, you can see remains of the crypt of the 9th-century abbey church. Enjoy 10 Min free time to click some pictures of this church

Town Hall (Rathaus)
Zürich's Town Hall, the Rathaus, is easy to spot, as it overhangs the river and is supported on wide arches at the east end of the Rathausbrücke. Constructed between 1694 and 1698, the massive Late Renaissance building has rich sculptured decoration and a Baroque ceremonial hall.

Standing in an open terrace above the river, Zürich's principal church dominates the city skyline with its twin towers. Built between the 11th and the 13th centuries, it is a Romanesque three-aisled galleried basilica with a chancel over a crypt that dates from about 1100. The upper levels of the towers date from 1487, but the domed tops were added in 1782.

High on the south tower on the river side is a seated figure of Charlemagne, who is believed to have founded the order to which the church originally belonged.
