The view over the city from its rooftop pool is simply amazing, and that alone would almost be worth the entrance.

Leave a CHF 20 deposit at one of the Züri rollt containers and enjoy the city on two wheels. You might want to cycle down part of either side of the lake or just use the bike to get around Zurich a bit quicker.

Founded in 1985, the Kunsthalle only became a significant institution in Zurich's art scene after it moved into the Löwenbräu-Areal development together with the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst and a handful of influential privately owned art galleries in the mid-90s.

Zurich’s newest urban district, Europaallee is an ultra-modern residential, university, business and entertainment area right in the centre of Zurich near the main train station. It’s still growing, with new developments in the pipeline right up until 2020, but there’s already plenty to entertain visitors and residents, from contemporary bars and restaurants such as Hin & Weg Gare to myriad shops selling outdoor and sports gear, jewellery and clothes. Find Swiss designer togs at Gris, get up to speed on urban gardening at Veg and the City, and combine a yoga session with clothes shopping at Lola Fred. The district’s youthful and trendy vibe is boosted by the presence of several university buildings.
