From the historic old town to the vibrant and young Zurich West, from the summer spa town to the winter wonderland: where to begin? The city on the Limmat has countless sights and attractions to offer; after all, it looks back on an eventful history and a long tradition. Zurich’s restaurant scene is as diverse as the city itself. The more than 2,000 restaurants on offer range from award-winning gourmet eateries to traditional guild houses with an eventful past to original restaurants in factory buildings. Art and culture are very important in Zürich, as the city was already avant-garde in the Middle Ages. Whether as an important site of silk production and trade in the 13th century, as the birthplace of the Dada movement at the beginning of the 20th century and later of constructivism, or as the hometown and adopted home of many important artists and intellectuals. Zurich as the gateway to Switzerland as a tourist destination, its tourism organization, creative entrepreneurs, city and canton are systematically developing the idea of sustainability and pursuing a long-term strategy towards becoming a “Smart Destination”.
