Zurich - Far Too Easy to Love
Zurich takes its Swiss-ness very seriously; the public transport is efficient, regular and beautifully presented. The town is spotless, the flower beds a triumph of form and colour and the dining is exquisite. However a little chic grunge has crept into the mix and those that like to get out on the edge are well catered for as well!
Zurich hosts Europe's biggest street party every August and the town comes alive for this eclectic weekend. There are dance clubs popping up all over the place and during summer Zurich seems to grow its hair long, get a couple of tatts and raise a glass to enjoyment.
As far as weekend getaways go, Zurich is brilliant. You can land on Friday night, explore the city and get away on Sunday or Monday having had the time of your life.
Explore the Old Town, enjoy late night activities in Züri-West. Wander the red light district of Langstrasse and on Sunday morning join all of Zurich as they stroll the lakeside pathways. Food is good and there are plenty of choices - from the upmarket traditional such as Zum Kropf to the hundreds of cafes that dot the city. Zurich should be near the top of your list for short breaks in Europe - it's easy to get to, has plenty to do and will suit the night people and or the day trippers.
