    Pass By: Zürich Tourist Information, Hauptbahnhof, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland

    Anyone who has questions about Zurich, requires information about city tours and excursions, or would like some insider tips is at the right address at the Tourist Information in the main concourse of Zurich Main Station.

    Pass By: Bahnhofstrasse, Runs north-south west of Limmat River, Zurich 8001 Switzerland

    You can find everything that your heart desires in Bahnhofstrasse: fashion, art and Zurich specialties attract local residents as well as visitors.

    Lindenhof is an oasis at the heart of the city that looks back on a moving history.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Fraumünster – a Church in the Old Town With Windows by Chagall and Giacometti

    Stop At: Niederdorf, Right bank of Limmat river, Zurich 8001 Switzerland

    Niederdorf is part of Zurich's old town – and the locals fondly refer to it as "Dörfli", meaning the entire Niederdorf and Oberdorf area that extends as far as Bellevue. Niederdorf is a pedestrian zone the same as Limmatquai, which runs parallel. During the day, the pedestrian zone and many stores, which are almost hidden in alleyways, entice you to shop. In the evening, Niederdorf changes into a nightlife district for a very varied public with its bars and street artists.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Pass By: Grossmunsterplatz, Zurich 8001 Switzerland

    The Grossmünster church is a landmark of Zurich. Legend has it that the church was built on the graves of the city's patron saints, Felix and Regula.

    The sites we saw were excellent. However, it was extremely hard to hear Gabriella. And when we would get to the next stop she started talking before the whole group caught up. No time to take pictures except at the park.
