The city's historic heart, the atmospheric Old Town serves as one of the area's major tourist attractions, famed for its well-preserved 19th-century architecture and cobblestoned lanes flanked by trendy shops, galleries, and restaurants. A convenient starting point for tours around the city, the district stretches along both banks of the Limmat River. Begin your walk through medieval Zurich at the Old Town's landmark bridge, which connects two monumental cathedrals situated on opposite sides of the river. From there you can easily reach the nearby shopping streets, packed with hip cafes and quirky boutiques. In the evening the neighborhood's bars and clubs become the center of Zurich's lively nightlife. Put Old Town at the forefront of your travel plans using our Zurich journey maker .
Old Town Reviews
El casco antiguo de Zúrich tiene mucho encanto. Es muy agradable para dar un paseo. Me gustó especialmente por la noche, la iluminación es preciosa. Merece la pena. more »Zurich's old town has a lot of charm. It's very nice to take a walk. I especially liked it at night, the lighting is beautiful. It's worth it.

While interesting is to turn the center to see very nice and luxurious shops and breathe an air of high well-being and wealth and comfortable life. so it's worth a ride.
