This international city got its start as a tax-collecting border post in Roman times. In the 7th century Louis the German built a castle here, and in 1045 Zurich was granted the right to hold markets. By 1218, Zurich was growing fast into an important Imperial City. Through the years leading up to 1800, the city was heavily fortified and you can still see evidence of these fortifications around the city. Today, Zurich has evolved and developed into the financial centre of Switzerland as well as a major transportation hub and a very popular tourist destination.
There is no larger city in Switzerland than Zurich and most travellers describe it as a playground for the wealthy. Reserve a Zurich hotel at the city's renowned hallmarks, namely the Lake Zurich or the many attractions such as the Swiss National Museum or the typical guild houses, for example the Zunfthaus zur Haue. Important squares where you can find many of the hotels in Zurich are the Parade-Platz and the Bahnhofplatz. The impressive Alps are not more than half an hour away from Zurich. There is so much to see and do here. Take a walk through the Grossmunster, and old Romanesque church – make sure you climb to the top of the church tower where you will discover some amazing views over the city. Another place where you can find some great views over the city is from the hill overlooking the city centre. Take the Polybahn to the top, and don't forget your camera. You can relax on a steam ship out on the Zurichsee, or if you prefer to travel under your own power, rent a rowboat.
