About City

Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city is on the shore of its glistening eponymous lake is the center of economic life and education. Located in the heart of Europe, the city offers all the modern amenities of a cosmopolitan metropolis, without sacrificing its natural side. Zurich has for years ranked among the world’s top cities in terms of quality of life. It is a boutique city that offers everything that implies, albeit in small and exquisite format. Zürich is a financial powerhouse with a liveability ranking that outstrips almost anywhere in the world. Culturally vibrant, efficiently run and attractively set at the meeting of river and lake, Zurich is regularly recognized as one of the world's most liveable cities. The wide variety of cultural activities and educational institutions define Zurich's character as a diverse, open city with a passion for life. Zürich’s sights and effortlessly cool nightspots are in the Altstadt, a historic Centre cut in two by the Limmat River which flows off the lake.

Zurich is avant-garde: it was not only home to Dada, but also the place where the Freitag bag and world-renowned Helvetica typeface originated. Researchers at the revered Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and companies such as Google and Disney Research produce one innovation after the next. Creativity is also in abundance thanks to one of the biggest universities in Europe devoted to the arts – Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) – while establishments such as the Kunsthaus Zürich, Haus Konstruktiv and Museum für Gestaltung ensure that it all doesn’t fall into oblivion.
