Tourism in Zürich
On leaving the Central Railway Station or Hauptbahnhof, you will find a monument dedicated to the great industrial precursor of modern-day Switzerland, Alfred Escher, and the main street of Zurich, the Bahnhofstrasse, a street lined with jewellery sto9res and hotels and boutiques that continues to the shores of Lake Zurich. If during your walk you come upon the 1859 Sprungli Candy shop, try their famous Luxemburgerli cream cakes. Very near the station is a beautiful 19th-century building that resembles a mediaeval castle, which is currently the Swiss National Museum (Schweizerisches Landesmuseum). It invites you in to learn about the countrys history. As you walk through the main street, take a detour through Rennweg in order to get to the old city (Altstadt), an enchanting square at the foot of the hill that is considered to be the original site of this city, Lindenhof, where one can admire a stunning view of Zurich or partake in a giant game of chess.
Continue the visit by stopping at St. Peters Church, Zurichs oldest temple, and St. Peterhofstatt Plaza. On one side is St. Peters Tower, built at the end of the 13th century as a fire station with two large Gothic windows and Europes largest clock hands. In the next square, you can take a look at the beautiful 13th-century Gothic church, the Fraumünster that has some astonishing windows in the choir created by Marc Chagall and also enjoy the Zunfthaus Museum Zur Meisen built in the Rococco style with important pottery collections. From the Bürkliplatz Plaza you will see the National Bank of Switzerland and the Ganimedes Fountain and then cross the river over the Quaibrücke bridge that take you to the Opera House and the Fish Fountain. From here you can admire the twin towers of Zurich Cathedral, Grossmünster, with a spiral staircase that takes you to the top to enjoy yet another beautiful view. Very near the river banks is the Gothic-style water church and its Giacometti windows, and the Renaissance, style City Hall.
