What an amazing city. Everywhere you turn narrow side streets with the most beautiful buildings. The stroll along the river is also magical. Really pleased to have seen Zurich when the Christmas lights were on. It's a city I hope to keep returning to.

A great stroll along the embankment, especially if you cross one of the bridges into the old town. There are some interesting narrow streets with shops and cafes. There are lots of benches to sit at and enjoy the view.

The eastern bank of Lake Zurich, though a bit far affords some beautiful views of the city with the Alps in the distance. Best accessed from Old town area
