The Medieval Little Big City

Long regarded as the financial center of Europe, Zurich certainly knows how to balance business with pleasure. The elegant Park Hyatt Zurich is located in the heart of the banking district on Beethoven-Strasse, mere steps from Zurich Lake and walkable to most of the city's attractions. Because of Switzerland's neutrality during World War I, Zurich became a haven for artists, musicians and writers. That spirit still pulses beneath Zurich's buttoned-up exterior at the quirky cocktail bars and shops of Zurich West. Whether romance, culture, or fine dining are on your itinerary, Zurich is well prepared to meet your needs.

Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity


  • Zurich's Old Town

    Altstadt (Old Town) is the historical and medieval center of Zurich and is consistently ranked as the not-to-miss area during your Swiss vacation. Cobblestone streets, award-winning restaurants and boutique coffee houses are just a few of the highlights. This melting pot of culture is also where you'll find the most clubs and finest shopping.

    Lindenhof Square.  Visit the larger than life chess set near the Limmat River at Lindenhof Square. Located above Old Town, you're likely to witness travelers and locals relaxing in the sunshine.

    Museum Rietberg. In Rieterpark, the Rietberg Museum houses Asian, African, American and Oceanian art. Art history enthusiasts love the museum for its collection of non-European objects and masterpieces. For an appreciation of foreign tradition, look no further.

    Swiss National Museum.  You'd be remiss to visit Zurich without a stop to the Swiss National Museum. On an island between the Sihl and Limmat Rivers in Old Town, the museum is a regional institution and highlights the Middle Ages through the 20th century.
