A must see whilst in Zurich. The old town is rich in culture and architecture. Suggest you stay in one of the many small hotels in the middle of old town.

We loved walking 13 kms the first day and 15 kms the second, exploring the streets and shops. Unfortunately it was poor weather so not as enjoyable as we’d hoped.

Hotel Zum Storchen is FANTASTIC if you must have river views. If you don't want to spend quite that much, Hotel Central also has river views and is across the river from the train station. Lastly, Hotel St. Gotthard is great... More
