Zurich is a major financial centre. Low tax rates attract overseas companies to locate their headquarters in the city. Zurich is often named as the wealthiest city in Europe, and sometimes also as the city with the best quality of life in the world.

There are a number of suggested routes for the Zurich walking tours, but here is the key one:

Züri West Guided Tour

Explore Züri West – a quarter located west of the Main Central Railway Station. A quarter that once witnessed the industrial revolution is today a focal point for gastronomy, art, design, culture and architecture. The factories have long since moved away, leaving behind them extensive industrial sites that creative minds have put to good use.

It is founded on the old, which in turn bears and shapes the new. A guide to city’s past, present and future all at once. An impressive example of successful urban revitalisation. A tour that will not only present you the most actual architectural activity in Zürich, but invite you to experience the hip life of a real Zuri-citizens within the landscape of bricks, concrete and glas, monumental factories, railways, pulsating restaurants and bars – the melting pot of the city.
