Overview
Delve into Switzerland’s colorful past and discover top Zurich attractions on this 2-hour Zurich walking tour. Follow your guide along the beautiful Bahnhofstrasse, where locals mingle in bustling boutiques, art galleries and cafes. Head towards Lindenhof, and discover local landmarks including the City Hall, St Peter Church and the Limmat River. Gain insight into Zurich’s 16th-century silk industry in Schipfe and stroll the winding alleys of Niederdorf in the Old Town, home to the attractive churches of Fraumünster and Grossmünster.
What to Expect
Choose between a morning & afternoon tour, then meet your guide in front of the Tourist Information at Zurich's main railway station before setting off on foot. 

What do Einstein, James Joyce and Wagner have in common? All three were residents of Zurich. But it´s not only great minds who are captivated by this lakeside city with its well-preserved old town – people from all over the world have always flocked to the thriving metropolis.  

On a two-hour walk through the old town, we go searching for clues to the city´s past in its hidden alleyways and picturesque squares. Together, we uncover the secrets of Bahnhofstrasse, find out what a "procession axis" is, and visit a church with a minute-hand that jumps a record-breaking half meter every minute.  

This popular tour is filled with numerous astonishing and amusing anecdotes and has plenty to offer both visitors and locals alike.
