Bank On It
Discover the Lively Side of Lakeside Swiss City
Zurich bustles with bankers, but it has plenty to offer beyond its vaults. Zurich West, once a red-light district, is now a hotspot for bars, clubs, restaurants and galleries, while outdoor cinemas, concerts and lake cruises lure tourists and locals alike in the summer. Browse at Hermes, Louis Vuitton and Prada along Bahnhofstrasse, its most popular shopping street, then take a break with a coffee and mini-macaroons at Confiserie Sprungli.
