Zürich

Day 2: Basel-Zürich

The second day we visited the city of Zurich, one of the cities with the highest quality of life in the world, also one of the most expensive and where luxury stands out for all its streets.

Bahnofplatz

Zürich's main station is the main railway station in the city. The station is the largest in Switzerland and is a point of connection for national trains as well as from bordering countries.

Built between 1865 and 1871. In this square, dominated by the traffic of cars and trams, every Wednesday a very interesting market is held.

Bahnhofstrasse

It is the most important street in the center of Zurich and one of the most expensive and exclusive shopping streets in the world.

It is a luxury to walk through its streets and see the impressive showcases of watches and fashion stores.

Only within reach of the best pockets.

Zürich Lake

Located at the southern tip of Zurich, this lake is a popular destination for excursions and on its banks there are many residential houses.

Around the lake there are more than 30 towns and the best way to visit it is by taking a boat trip.

As data I will say that in a shore of the lake I paid  € 6 for a small bottle of water, I will never find a more expensive place.

Zürich Opera House

Inagured in 1834 as the old Actien-Theater that burned down in 1890, it gave way to the Opera House.

With capacity for approximately 1,100 seats, the theater was completely renovated between 1982 and 1984.

Fraumünster Church



The church was built from the middle of the 9th century on the opposite side of the river from the Grossmünster church. Today, it attracts many visitors especially with the five glass windows created by Marc Chagall in the 1960s.
