Description

Zurich city has an enviable reputation both as a high-flying modern European centre and as a beautiful place architecturally.

The old town part of the city offers most of the architectural interest as it encompassed most of the city before 1893. Two large expansions of the city limits occurred in 1893 and in 1934 when the city of Zurich merged with many surrounding municipalities that had been growing increasingly together since the 19th century.

Today, the city is divided into twelve districts (known as Kreis in German), numbered 1 to 12, each one of which may contain anywhere between 1 and 4 neighborhoods. According to several surveys from 2006 to 2008, Zurich was named the city with the best quality of life in the world as well as the wealthiest city in Europe. Compared to other cities, there are few tall buildings in Zurich as the municipal building regulations (Article 9) limit the construction of high-rise buildings to areas in the west and north of the city.

Most of Zurich's interesting sights are located within the area on either side of the Limmat river, between the Main railway station and Lake Zurich. The churches and houses of the old town are clustered there, as are the most expensive shops along the famous Bahnhofstrasse. The Lindenhof in the old town is the historical site of the Roman castle, and the later Carolingian Imperial Palace, and is one sight that you should certainly take the time to survey.
