One of the wealthiest and most immaculate cities in the world

Swiss chocolate is well known worldwide and Zurich is home to some of the best Swiss Chocolate stores. It was not always this way, the cocoa for the chocolate originates from South America and was transported to Switzerland in the early 16th century. Towards the end of the 18th century Swiss artisans started processing the cocoa and began small businesses producing chocolate. Some of the well known chocolate makers such as; Lindt, Suchard, Callier, Tobler and Sprungli were recognised.

Zurich has lots of urbanized neighbourhoods nestled amongst cultural and historical areas. It is well situated on Lake Zurich with the River Limmat flowing through it and is also right at the foot of the spectacular Swiss Alps. It is home to over 50 museums and about 100 art galleries. The Landesmuseum, or Swiss National Museum as it is also called, is one of the most popular museums in the country and is located in a central location across from the main station. It is home to very significant art collections stretching back to the prehistoric era. There are also fourteen museums designed specially for children with exhibits featuring a vast selection from culture, modern day science through to dinosaurs.

Lake Zurich and Limmat River both boast clean waters with stunning views. The “Badis” are lake and riverside bathing areas and they attract both locals and visitors to enjoy the warm, short summer.

Shopping is popular and Bahnhofstrasse is the shopping capital of Zurich. It is home to the most exclusive shops you will ever witness, just walking around this traffic free area is an experience.

Lindenhof Hill is the public park located on the western side of the Limmat River and is registered as a Swiss Heritage site. It is an enjoyable place to visit and soak up the culture and history, with one of the best views in Zurich. Tourists love to photograph this area.

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business
