What to see in Zurich

Zurich Attractions


Brimming with attractions and sightseeing opportunities to suit every kind of traveller, Zurich has wonderful monuments, museums and churches to explore.

Wander through the cobblestone streets of Niederhof and enjoy a light meal or cup of coffee while being entertained by the street performers and buskers. Culture vultures will love the Swiss National Museum, the Fine Arts Museum and the Museum of Design Zurich and children of all ages will love the Zurich Zoo, where endangered species such as snow leopards and red pandas can be seen.

Visitors keen on doing a lot of sightseeing in Zurich should purchase the Zurich Tourist Card, which includes access to transport services of Zurich Public Transport and offers free admission to over 40 museums, reduced admission to the zoo, a complimentary welcome drink in over 20 restaurants and a number of other benefits. The card can be bought for 20CHF for 24 hours or 40CHF for 72 hours.
