We roamed around for a day drifting in and out of various locations. Plenty of walking and plenty to see. This is a beautiful city well worth a visit.

We spent a few hours walking in the Old Town. The buildings are very photogenic and walking along Limmat River is very enjoyable with great views.

The Old Town of Zürich is a very nice place, where you can easily walk and discover small alleys and nice places to stop and have a drink or a meal. You will also see many very nice churches.

A must see whilst in Zurich. The old town is rich in culture and architecture. Suggest you stay in one of the many small hotels in the middle of old town.
