Dear cultured traveler, welcome to Zurich!
Beyond all conventional tours, the heart of the Old City reveals its chronicles and surprises those who have ventured off-the-beaten-track. This Zurich City Walk gives you an overview of the Highlights, Local Secrets, and unmissable Insiders Tips.
The further you stroll down Old Zurich's narrow pathways, the deeper you will immerse yourself into your journey through forgotten history. As you uncover bygone myths, archeological vestiges of the glorious Roman past, follow the city's patron saints' footsteps, and witness their demise, the more the Zeitgeist of Zurich reveals itself.
You will have plenty of time to take astonishing photos & marvel at the old city, lake, and the Alps from superb scenic spots.
This journey was lovingly and meticulously (so you don't have to) crafted for you: The Curious, The Explorer, and The Unconventional.
I'm looking forward to showing and exploring Zurich with you!
