Holiday apartments in Zurich

A chic apartment in the middle of the old town

Switzerland's largest city offers you an extensive cultural programme, most of which is concentrated in the city centre. There are numerous accommodations from which you can reach all the sights within walking distance. A holiday apartment in the old town is therefore the perfect starting point to quickly reach the Opera House, the Kunsthaus, the Town Hall or the shores of Lake Zurich.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of a holiday apartment on the outskirts of the city

In the outskirts of Zurich there are also some accommodations, which offer you the advantages of a green area and at the same time a good traffic connection. For example, you can stay in a villa not far from Zurich Zoo, which offers you comfortable facilities. In addition, you can still easily reach supermarkets, cafés and restaurants from a vacation rental on the outskirts.

Holidays in Zurich

Location and orientation

Beautifully situated in the countryside

Zurich lies at an altitude of 408 metres and is wonderfully embedded between the Zürichberg and the Uetliberg. The city partly borders on the shore of Lake Zurich and thus offers a wonderful local recreation area on the water. The city is also surrounded by extensive forest areas. The nearest city of Winterthur is only 25 kilometres from Zurich. Lucerne can be reached after a 50 kilometre drive.

Travelers and Activities

Zurich for night owls

The city on Lake Zurich is not only known for its high quality of life. It also offers a diverse nightlife with over five hundred bars, discos and nightclubs. The most popular nightlife areas include Zurich-West, Niederdörfli and the Langstrasse quarter. For going out and enjoying the urban nightlife, there are several possibilities to rent an apartment in a good location.

Pure art and culture

Zurich was shaped by many artists and cultural workers such as composers, painters and writers who often came together here as political refugees. These personalities include Hermann Hesse, Max Frisch, Antonio Ligabue and James Joyce. To experience Zurich's extensive cultural programme, it is worth renting a holiday apartment in the city centre. From here you can quickly reach most of the exhibition houses and cultural events that still deal with the works of these personalities today.

Things to know

Art in public space

In many squares, streets and parks in Zurich you will find more than 1,300 works of art in public space. These include, for example, the remarkable choir window of the Fraumünster Church, which was created by Marc Chagall. Also worth seeing is the granite sculpture of Max Bill, which you can find in the Bahnhofstraße.

Already in Roman times there was a customs station and a fort where Zurich is located today. The foundation of the city, however, did not take place until the early Middle Ages.

Top 3 travel tips

1. Worth seeing old town

Take a stroll through the historic city centre to visit the beautiful Bellevue Square by the lake, the Urania to Lindenhof, the Town Hall and St. Peter's Church. Numerous cafés and many excellent restaurants invite you to linger and take a break.

2nd hub for contemporary art

There are more than 50 museums in Zurich, 14 of which exclusively present art. The Kunsthaus Zürich is highly recommended, as it displays an important collection of sculptures, paintings, photography and video art. Among others, works by Alberto Giacometti and Edvard Munch are presented here.

3. Experience traditional Sechsel ringing

An important festival always takes place in Zurich in April. At the Sechseläuten the "Böögg" is burnt down in the context of a parade of the guilds. This ritual is to destroy the personified winter to make way for spring.
