Profile: Old Town Zürich

Profile: Old Town Zürich

Zurich’s Old Town straddles both sides of the serene Limmat River, and is a place where history comes alive. As you potter along its narrow cobblestone streets, past pretty squares and crumbling corners, you’ll see medieval houses, antiques shops, and historic churches like the Fraumünster – whose soaring steeple pierces the skyline, dwarfing those of every other church around it.

Don’t miss a trip to the Grossmünster, where you can climb one of its vertigo-inducing towers and be reward with panoramic views of the city and sparkling waters of Lake Zurich in the distance.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Right in downtown and 5mins to main station by tram. Room is surprisingly spacious and modern and service is good. Only problem was that it does not accept pre payment by Expedia so you have to pay at the property. I chose pay now at time of booking but this was over ridden so I had to pay at the property which caused some confusion. Overall good hotel
