Lying along Limmat River, and featuring cobblestones streets, and an important religious landmark, Altstadt, the historic section in Zurich is every holiday seekers dream destination. The original walls of this old town are still visible, and ancient buildings and restaurants still stand creating a quaint and relaxing atmosphere. Modern and traditional buildings stand side by side, offering a juxtaposition that only preserved Old Towns can offer. Home to myriad outdoor restaurants, cultural and historical locations, Altstadt takes visitors on a culinary and cultural adventure, showing visitors where the largest city in Switzerland came from.
- Join a guided walking tour of Altstadt, and see how this Zurich Old Town has maintained itself coalescing, the modern with the old in an appealing, and interesting manner.
- Visit Fraumünster (Church of Our Lady) in Altstadt, and marvel at the unique Gothic style; the Romanesque choir is also the perfect place to sit and mediate in reverent silence.
- Walk down Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich, apparently the most expensive street in the world, and window shop at the elegant and top end boutiques and department stores found here.
Zurich is one of the world’s most advanced cities, and its transport systems are no less. If looking to tour Altstadt, buses and trams, which are operated by Zürcher Verkehrsverbund can get you there. Usually you will not have to wait for more than 6 minutes for a bus. The S-Bahn, and riverboats are alternative ways to get around this Swiss locality. The boat also makes several stops along Limmat River, including the Old Town. However, to really see all the sights in Altstadt, walking or biking is recommended, since all sites are close by.
