Old Town Zurich

Local nameAltstadt
LocationZurich, Switzerland

Zurich's Old Town is everything you would expect from a historical heart of a city, but also of a lively center of modern-day life. It is characteristic by its pedestrian-only streets, paved with cobblestone and lined with picturesque houses, some of which have been standing here since the Middle Ages. Take a stroll around and enjoy the atmosphere, or sit in one of the many local restaurants and cafés and just relax.

Some parts of the historical quarter, such as the Lindenhof, have been built on an area, where human settlements are documented since as early as the 1st century BC. The buildings you can see here are of a much later date, though. The oldest ones have been built in the 13th century AD.

If you aren't much of a history buff, the Old Town may still entice you. There are plenty of places to enjoy the night here and a bustling nightlife, as Altstadt boasts the highest concentration of clubs per square meter in the whole of Switzerland.
