Zurich Old Town Walking Tour


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. Together, we uncover the secrets of Bahnhofstrasse, find out what a ‘procession axis´ is, and visit a church with a minute-hand that jumps a record-breaking half meter every minute.

This popular tour is filled with numerous astonishing and amusing anecdotes and has plenty to offer both visitors and locals alike.
