Zurich is the Swiss capital & one of the world’s principal financial centres. Zurich has made its name among the top 3 most expensive cities in the world.

The city offers beautiful and intriguing destinations along with several museums, ancient towns that are home to well-preserved structures from the Renaissance and the Middle Ages and lots of artwork both inside and outside of museums to satisfy art lovers visiting the city. Zurich can be explored on foot and is known to be one of the safest cities in the world. Views of the historic, vibrant buildings along the Limmat River, the distant, snow-capped Alps, and tranquil Lake Zurich are some of the best places to explore.

Where to Stay in Zurich

Click below & search recommended Zurich hotels/hostels/home rentals within your budget. Remember to set your min/max price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. I often book online with these trusted booking sites below for rock-bottom prices & convenient bookings.


Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
