Cheap Hotels in Zurich
The largest city in Switzerland is located around 30 kilometres from the Alps, where the Limmat River meets Lake Zurich. Surrounded by rolling hills, its exceptional location, along with its thriving economy, warrant its 2006 and 2008 title of city with the best quality of life in the world.
Take one of our cheap flights to Zurich and discover a city which offers a wealth of leisure and culture, just steps away from the most spectacular landscapes. Zurich’s old town is home to important religious monuments, Medieval townhouses and shopping streets, such as Bahnhofstrasse, where you will find the most exclusive shops. In addition to the lake, the Grossmünster Cathedral is the symbol of Zurich. This Romanesque cathedral was built under Carlo Magno’s orders and dates back to the 9th and 13th centuries. It boasts two prominent twin towers, a crypt (the largest in Switzerland) and a Romanesque cloister. The Saint Peter Church of Zurich is the oldest in the city and is considered to have the largest clock in Europe, which is 8.7 metres in diameter.
Standing out among the civilian buildings are the Baroque Town Hall (Rathaus) and the Medieval houses on Rennweg street. If you want to enjoy breathtaking landscapes, head to Mount Uetliberg. At 869 metres above sea level, this is the highest point of the city and its lookout offers the most stunning views of Zurich, its lake and the Alps. (Iberia)
