Whether you arrive for the Christmas markets or to see the lake sparkling in summer, find out why Zurich car rental is always worthwhile...
Famed for alpine vistas, smooth chocolate, pocket knives, holey cheese and unflappably efficient watches, the Swiss are rightly proud of their famous exports. And for every stereotype about this landlocked European beauty, there's something that will surprise and delight. Take Zurich, the largest city in Switzerland, which sprawls elegantly around the head of Lake Zurich in the north of the country. It's a financial powerhouse by the water, known for banking, trading and success. It's also crowned by magnificent churches, criss-crossed by streets laden with cafés and lined in time-worn cobbles, and a truly excellent destination for those who like to let their hair down and party in cool bars and clubs. The quality of life is second only to a select band of other global cities and, while it's an expensive place to visit, tourists feel richly rewarded with incredible views, great food, captivating museums and a clutch of world-class shopping opportunities.
The Old Town, in particular the car-free streets of Niederdorf, is the place to stroll from street artist to boutique to café, admiring the architecture and soaking up the ambience. Hop across the River Zammat and tour the age-old streets and Roman Castle in Lindenhof. Zurich West is a district bubbling over with upcoming nightclubs, cool art galleries and hip restaurants.
Zurich Airport is a 20-minute drive from the central areas of the city, so having a car makes it easy to transfer between your hotel and the airport, for getting around the city, and for discovering more of Zurich's surroundings.
