One of the most beautigul cities in Switzerland
Zurich with its perfectly preserved Altstadt is one of the most beautiful cities in Switzerland and this is saying a lot taking into account the other cities of the country. The hill of Lindenhof where the old Roman castle was and then the Carolingian Kaiserpfalz, the Bahnhofstrasse and the streets of the historic center are a very good example of architecture dating from medieval times.
On the other hand, compared to other cities, Zurich has very few tall buildings. The Sunrise Tower is one of the tallest buildings in the country and is only 88 meters or the Prime Tower isonly 126. New buildings have proliferated throughout the city in recent years, such as the Karl Moser’s Museum of Modern Art,the Stadelhofen Station and the Law Library of theUniversity of Santiago Calatrava, the Freitag Flagship Store of the office Spillmann.echslearchitekten and many others, also make Zurich a very good place to admire contemporary architecture.
