5 OLD TOWN

Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS -

The schism be­tween old and new lies at the heart of con­tem­po­rary Zurich West, with cut­ting-edge de­sign con­tained within 19th-cen­tury industrial build­ings. In this, it is noth­ing like the city’s Old Town, a 15-minute jour­ney on tram num­ber 4 from Zurich West.

Here you’ll dis­cover a his­toric Euro­pean city, with a smart ex­te­rior that is un­sur­pris­ing given Zurich reg­u­larly tops qual­ity of life sur­veys. The dou­ble tow­ers of the Gross­mün­ster church are its most rec­og­niz­able land­mark, and the clock face on Peter­skirche is one of the largest in Europe. The city’s third church, Fraumün­ster, is best known for its stained­glass win­dows. A walk around the calm­ing shore­line of Lake Zurich is a pleas­ant way to while away some time. BT
