Zurich Holidays

Big on personality, culturally classic and impressively cool, Zurich holidays are the epitome of a slick city break.

It may be Switzerland’s largest, industrious city, but with its peaceful riverside setting, complete with historical landmarks and a vivacious art scene, Zurich resembles a picturesque postcard you just want to step into. On Zurich holidays you’ll be torn between old town rustic moments and a modern infectious vibe. You’ll soon find yourself taking snaps against eye-catching churches on cobblestone alleys, spotting fine art in modern museums, enjoying fondue along a quaint marina and be it market finds or luxury labels, shopping till you drop.

And that’s all before you’ve had an unexpected taste of the frothy beers at the Zurich beer festival and the wild nightlife, that might involve a cool cocktail amid fairy-lit shipping containers, just saying.

With scenic lake cruises on your doorstep and ski resorts just an hour away, there’s no end of fresh air and fun against the swaggering views of this Swiss city that sparkles with life.
