Switzerland’s biggest city offers a nice mix of understated charm and self-confident swagger. The CBD is divided into altstadt (old town) and Niederdorf by the clear green waters of the river Limmat and capped by the sparkling Lake Zürich. Here, elegant churches and affluent guildhalls preside over cobbled streets, boutiques and cafés. While on Bahnhofstrasse, one of Europe’s most expensive shopping streets, you’ll rub shoulders with zillionaires one minute, then be jostled by teens tumbling out of H&M the next. Those after a bit of grit will find it in Zuri West around Hardbrücke – with funkier shops, cool bars and nightlife.
