A magnificent city located by the shore of a stunning Alpine lake that is perfect for sailing in summer, Zurich is a fabulous destination in the heart of Switzerland that needs no introduction. Undeniably cosmopolitan and yet retaining much of its provincial effortless charm, the city and its surrounding region offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors as a family with a myriad of hiking and cycling trails and a great selection of adventure sports for the most intrepid travellers. Those who prefer to experience a bit of old European decadence will not be disappointed, as Zurich is home to an enchanting old medieval town that seamlessly merges with a 19th century opera house and modern buildings. Zurich is a bustling destination with something for everyone and ideal to explore as a family.
Renting holiday accommodation in Zurich
We are not going to lie, Zurich is expensive and with the city being so popular with visitors your best bet is to rent holiday accommodation. A holiday apartment will give you the freedom to plan your visit the way you want it and the luxury of having your own space. An overpriced hotel is not such an attractive option when you can enjoy your very own holiday apartment in which you can put your feet up after a long day out and about strolling down the old quarter, exploring enchanting palaces and discovering incredible museums.
Where to stay in Zurich
Renting holiday accommodation will give you the perfect excuse to interact with Zurich’s otherwise reserved local community. Only the locals will be able to tell you where to find the most delicious restaurant to sample the juiciest Swiss cuisine, or the quaintest cafe away from the tourist trail to enjoy the finest coffee and most scrumptious sachertorte in town, a mouth-watering chocolate cake. And of course, having your very own holiday rental means that you can always do a load of laundry before heading out the next day to visit that enchanting little park that your neighbour mentioned over a glass of wine. Why would you choose to stay in an overpriced soulless hotel when you can enjoy so much more space and privacy in a holiday rental? HouseTrip offers an excellent selection of holiday accommodation in the form of charming houses with impressive views over the lake and modern apartments throughout Zurich’s historical centre. A home away from home, renting holiday accommodation with HouseTrip is the surest way to enjoy the best that this stunning city has to offer in the most authentic way.
Zurich with the family
Start your tour by exploring Zurich’s Altstadt, the city’s magnificent old quarter. Stroll along cobbled old lanes where you can visit the charming town hall before indulging in some window shopping as you walk down Bahnhofstrasse, home to some of the most exclusive couture boutiques before finding a table at one of the many enchanting cafes for lunch. Don’t forget to rent a boat and sail through the beautiful lake, a perfect way to discover this stunning area that will delight children, or perhaps treat the little ones to a visit to the Zoological Garden. Zurich hosts many markets that sell mouth-watering fresh produce, making a self-catering rental a wonderful option to ensure that you sample the best gastronomy to be found in the region; the perfect way to enjoy the comforts of your own home during your family holiday.
