There are so many things to do and see in Zurich: take a stroll along the lake, hop on a vintage tram, or climb to the rooftop terrace of a container tower. Zurich is also the city of „badis“, bathing areas with bars on the rivers and the lake, repurposed warehouses and factories, the singing Christmas tree, and last but not least, it has the world’s biggest church clock face!
