Zurich & the region

Unanimously recognized as a major international finance center, Zurich is also celebrated for its quality of life. It regularly tops the list of the world’s most pleasant cities. Safe, reliable, punctual, clean, organized and environmentally friendly, Zurich ticks all the boxes of a dynamic and welcoming modern city, yet reserves its more secret and surprising facets for curious visitors.

Zurich’s rich cultural life proves that there is life after banking… The Dada movement was born in Zurich and authors Hermann Hesse and Tristan Tzara lived here at the very beginning of the 20th century. Zurich’s residents are passionate about art and more than 1,300 works are installed in public spaces, with such famous names as Max Bill, Augusto Giacometti, Nikki de Saint-Phalle and Jean Tinguely.
