Zurich Custom Tour
Zurich Custom tour at Switzerland’s largest and wealthiest metropolis. Culturally vibrant, efficiently run and attractively set at the meeting of river and lake, Zurich is regularly recognised as one of the world’s most liveable cities. Long known as a savvy, hard-working financial centre, Switzerland’s metropolis has also emerged in the 21st century as one of central Europe’s hippest destinations, with an artsy, post-industrial edge that’s epitomised in its exuberant summer Street Parade.
Guided city tour through trendy Zurich-West, Lindt Chocolate Shop and boat cruise (April-October only for the cruise).
This city tour with a twist starts off with a visit to the up-and-coming Zurich-West district. During a short stroll, you will discover how a former industrial quarter became a booming city district. The district is also home to the Prime Tower – Switzerland’s tallest building! The tour continues to Kilchberg, where you can purchase the finest Swiss chocolate at discounted prices at the Lindt Chocolate Shop. Then it’s time to relax during a 1-hour cruise (not private) on the beautiful Lake Zürich. The boat cruise ends at Zurich Bürkliplatz, not far from Bahnhofstrasse and the Old Town.
Much of the ancient centre, with its winding lanes and tall church steeples, has been kept lovingly intact. Yet Zurich has also wholeheartedly embraced contemporary trends, with the conversion of old factories into cultural centres and creative new living spaces. Late night layover? Nowhere is that clearer than in Züri-West, the epicentre of the city’s nightlife.
Do you have more time? Outside the city, there’s also plenty to explore: Uetliberg with its trails and scenic vistas, pretty lakeside towns such as Rapperswil, and the renowned museums of nearby Winterthur.
