Zurich is the largest and most heavily populated country in Switzerland, as well as being the country’s most-visited tourist destination.

As with so much of Switzerland, Zurich tends to be priced quite expensively, although it has a strong local economy to match, and therefore the standard of living is one of the highest in Europe, and the city routinely ranks as one of the world’s most livable cities in industry polls, along with another Swiss city – Geneva.

Surrounded by the stunning Alps mountain range, the city offers picturesque surroundings and jaw-dropping views from much of the city. Despite its busy, tourist-related reputation, Zurich retains a laid-back atmosphere conducive to a relaxing vacation.

Arriving Zurich Airport

Zurich Airport is the largest airport in Switzerland, approximately 13km from Zurich city center. Therefore, Taxi cabs can be expected to charge around $17-$21 to undertake this journey.

Despite being a large and busy airport, there is a relaxed atmosphere to the airport and although check-in and baggage collection procedures are dealt with swiftly and economically, there is never the feeling that you are being rushed out of the airport.

Car rental processes are similarly efficient and the airport offers a wide range of shopping outlets and restaurants, as well as free wi-fi access for all visitors to the airport.

Though priced rather expensively, dining selection is of a fairly high quality if you are looking to eat upon arrival.

Driving In Zurich

Driving in Zurich is everything you would expect from such a well-organized, financially centred city. Roads systems are easily navigable, road signage is clear and abundant, and traffic volumes are consistently low apart from at peak-traffic hours.

Zurich is strewn with beautiful, mountain-top scenery, and the native drivers are relaxed and helpful towards foreign visitors and first-time drivers, ensuring an enjoyable driving experience.

However, parking fees, particularly in the heart of Zurich city center can be astronomically high, and it is recommended that you park on the outskirts of the city, and use public transport to travel to your desired tourist locations. The public transport system is generally agreed to be one of the best in Europe and offers extremely good reliability and availability.
