The Best of Zurich City Tour

0 / 5 total 0 reviews
Duration: 3 hours
Product code: 4343
Overview

Pass by the castle-like National Museum, the well-known shopping avenue Bahnhofstrasse and Zürich's famous financial district.

Picture stop at the port of "Enge" where you can enjoy beautiful vistas of the crystal-clear Lake Zürich.

Continue along the lake, passing by the renowned Opera House to the "Zürichberg" district with many superb mansions of glorious past times.

A great experience is a ride uphill by cogwheel train (Dolderbahn) to a viewpoint where the noble five-star Grand Hotel Dolder is located.

Enjoy breath-taking views of the city, the lake and the snow-covered Alps.

Cruising the university quarter, you will see the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), the University of Zürich and Zürich's art museum before reaching the charming Old Town.

The last picture stop of this versatile excursion offers views of the patriarchal guild houses, the St. Peter church with Europe's largest clock-face, the Grossmünster church and the Fraumünster church with the famously stained glass windows by Marc Chagall.

After a short walk through the Old Town, the tour ends here or with a scenic drive back on Limmatquai at Sihlquai bus parking.
