Holiday homes and rentals in Zurich

Homes in a vibrant and cultural city

Creative urban life and nature come together in full glory in this world-class cosmopolitan city. Zurich is abuzz with life with an endless string of events, diverse museums, fantastic shopping, and Switzerland’s best nightlife. It is also on the doorstep of Europe’s most arresting scenery – the legendary Swizz Alps. When choosing a holiday home in Zurich, the main consideration is whether to stay in the heart of the city, right next to the glamorous shops and countless museums, or just outside the city on the lake which stretches south from the city centre, such as the gorgeous suburbs of Kilchburg or Zollikon. The lakeside views are predictably wonderful and it’s only 15 minutes by bus or train into town.

Prestigious homes that meet your needs

Most homes in Zurich are flats housed in both historical and completely modern buildings, offering a memorable stay in a prestigious residential area in the heart of Zurich with all the amenities and sites on your doorstep. Lakeside homes boast huge terraces overlooking the wonderful natural environs of the city, and easy access to bus and train routes into town.

The area and getting around

Where nurture and nature combine

While Zurich is not Switzerland’s capital, it is its biggest and most celebrated city. Located on the tip of Lake Zurich, which extends out into the Alpine countryside so synonymous with the country, it is a destination which offers its fortuitous visitors a fascinating urban and natural heritage. The city of Zurich is such a lovely place to explore in part due to its diverse neighbourhoods. The city centre is divided into two by the lovely Limmat River, and is a fantastic place to take a stroll and experience this famous city in real time.

A cool neighbourhood around every corner

Altstadt Zürich is the core of the old town with cobbled alleys and prismatic medieval guild houses, independent shops, and artful cafes. Formerly industrial Zurich West has been completely transformed in recent years and is now the city’s trendiest district with much of its most vibrant nightlife. Seefeld is a laid-back lakeside neighbourhood boasting a gorgeous opera house and wonderfully relaxed vibe.

Zurich for museum aficionados

If you love visiting museums and galleries, then Zurich simply has to be your next-in-line place to visit. The city boasts no less than 50 museums and 100 art galleries, none more popular than Landesmuseum, located in a fairy-tale castle and showcasing the finest collection of historical and cultural exhibits in the country from prehistoric times to the present. Coming to Zurich with kids? Have no fear, as there are fourteen museums in the city specifically designed for children, which feature everything from dinosaurs, culture, and modern-day science!

Top 5 travel tips in Zurich

1. Explore Lake Zurich

More than 40 kilometres long, Lake Zurich is huge, and a glorious place for taking relaxing walks or cycling along the shore, especially in summer, when you can bathe on its beaches and have a lovely picnic.

2. Discover some of the world’s finest modern art

A world-class mecca for modern art, Kunsthaus Zürich boasts the city’s largest collection of modern art, including significant works by Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Munch or Monetas well as numerous contemporary Swiss artists.

3. It must be wine o’clock!

Üetliberg is a viewpoint 870 meters above sea level offering the finest views of the city, the lake and the Alpine mountains beyond. To get to the viewpoint, take tram line 13 to Albisguiti and from there walk about 45 minutes along a beautiful trail.

5. Take Zurich’s famous paranormal tour

Dan Dent performs bizarre magic, oracle readings, mind reading and psychic experiments throughout Switzerland, and he also leads Zurich’s most famous ghost tour.
