Cheap flights to Zurich
If you’re after true class, stunning mountain views and restaurants to die for then don’t look much further than Zurich. Europe’s largest street party takes place in Zurich. So it’s time to forget all those associations with Swiss banks and finance because Zurich is now officially one of Europe’s hippest and most vibrant cities. It’s flush with trendy bars, cafes and music venues catering to all tastes and, the closer you look, the more you’ll realise that this place has a lot more in store than you realised.
Travel to Zurich and you’ll find all sorts of gems, from art house cinemas where you can wile away a bohemian hour or two, to school playgrounds that turn into open-air clubs when evening falls. Then there’s jazz clubs, spectacular rock venues and as always those obligatory traditional Irish-style pubs.
A great day out for the entire family. Sechselauten, known as the 'Six o'clock Bells' Zurich Spring Festival dates back to the fourteenth century custom ringing of Grossmunster bell at 6 oclock in the vening to proclaim the start of summer. If you happen to be in the area, the festival climaxes with the Procession of the Guilds and the burning of the Böögg snowman at 1800 on the Sechseläuten field near the Opera.
If you love art and love seeing something truly amazing, go to the entrance hall to the city's police headquarters where Augusto Giacometti's murals are on display. The vaulted ceiling and walls are spectacular, celebrating the Giacometti family of artists. Not only is this free but the stained-glass windows show a bit of history in old Zurich.
