Zürich Comments

When I visited Zurich for a weekend with a friend, we couldn't figure out where the young people (twenty-somethings) were - but I can tell you they definitely weren't in the Irish and English bars that we checked out that the guidebook had recommended!! I liked it ok enough, but I wouldn't plan on staying more than a day or two.
After a month traveling in Europe, I came home to the U.S. via Zurich. I am so glad I did! Zurich is beautiful and very clean. Very organized. It was very easy to get around by train. I stayed at a very reasonably priced hotel near the airport that provided a free shuttle service, although it was easy enough to take the train. The train runs from the airport to the town of Zurich. Apparently, the "nightlife" is in the Neiderdorf (one side of the river) opposite the Haptobahnhoff (Rodeo Drive of Switzerland). The biggest tip I can offer you is buy your chocolate to take home from the Coop -- same chocolate as the Merk but much less expensive.
Go out on the Marktgasse. Bars close early, so start early. Clubs can be located within reach. Zurich is a great city, enjoy it and be respectful.
Go up to Utileburg to get the best view of Zurich.
Zurich is a weird place. It's a very very quiet and very very clean city. The touristy stuff can be seen in one day easy, so don't stay long - head out around the lake or to other parts of the country, which are picturesque and beautiful.
Zurich is a beautiful city. There is so much to do and the food is delicious. Shopping on Bahnhofstrasse is a must!
