What do Einstein, James Joyce and Wagner have in common? All three were residents of Zurich. But it´s not only great minds who are captivated by this lakeside city with its well-preserved old town - people from all over the world have always flocked to the thriving metropolis.


On a two-hour walk through the old town, we go searching for clues to the city´s past in its hidden alleyways and picturesque squares.
