Overview
Short on time? Check off the best bits of Switzerland’s biggest city on this 2-hour walking tour of Zurich. Marvel at landmarks like the Fraumünster and Grossmünster; enjoy window-shopping along glamorous Bahnhofsstrasse; and discover the birthplace of the Dadaist art movement. Learn more about Zurich’s history and cultural heritage as you stroll through around Lake Zurich, then admire the views from Lindenhof hill.
What to Expect
Choose a 10am or 3pm departure, and meet your guide and small group of no more than 12 at Zurich’s Main Station for your 2-hour tour.

Delve into downtown Zurich, and stroll along its best-known street, the Bahnhofstrasse. This traffic-free, 19th-century boulevard was designed by Arnold Bürkli along the Parisian model, and is one of Europe’s most exclusive shopping streets.

Pass the upscale stores, and head into Zurich Old Town to the Lindenhof, one of the city’s prettiest squares. Absorb the panoramic views from here over the River Limmat and 12th-century Grossmünster.

Walk by the riverside and visit the 11th-century Fraumünster church (own expense), viewing its stained-glass windows by Marc Chagall. See St. Peter's Church, adorned with Europe’s largest clock face, and walk by Lake Zurich, admiring the views.

Learn the history of the landmarks, and hear about one of Zurich’s most colorful sons, a pivotal figure in Switzerland’s 16th-century Protestant Reformation.

Visit the Cabaret Voltaire café-gallery (own expense) where the Dadaist art movement began in 1916, and see the street where Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin lived before traveling to his homeland to lead the 1917 uprising.

After two hours, your tour concludes in Zurich center when your guide departs.

Great tour

We had a nice tour with a guide who was actually from the Italian part of Switzerland but studied in Zurich for several years. He was fun and easy to listen to. The tour was a perfect introduction to the city!
