Zurich Lake, Limmat River & Uetliber Mountain
Zurich Lake, southeast of the city, flows out of a glacier in the Swiss Alps and emerges in the Limmat River. The lake is surrounded by towns and served by a variety of passenger services. The Limmat River which flows through Zurich is lined by towns. Small craft cruise the river but are limited by the many hydroelectric projects on the river. Uetliber Mountain is the town mountain from which the entire valley can be observed. The top of the mountain is accessed by a train which travels from the main train station.
Museum of Art & National, Reitberg and Beyer Museums
Zurich’s museums cover all aspects of history and art. The Museum of Art is one of Europe’s more important museums, displaying the classical modern works of Giacometti, Picasso and Munch. The National Museum contains exhibits of Swiss history and traditions. The Reitberg Museum is a center of world culture and art including examples from China, Tibet, India and Africa. The Beyer Museum presents unique mechanical time pieces and clocks. Zurich’s Guild houses are located along the Limmat River.
St. Peter, Grossmunster & Frauminster Churches
Zurich’s churches reflect the social and historical changes the churches of Europe experienced. The Romanesque- style Grossmunster was constructed as a monastery by Charlemagne, according to legend. It was the center of the Swiss-German church reformation led by Zwingli and Bullinger. It has modern windows designed by Polke and Giacommeti. Frauminster, or women’s church, was established in the ninth century with the support of the kinds. After the reformation, the city of Zurich took control of the church. St. Peter is designed in the Gothic-Baroque style and is recognized as having Europe’s largest clock face.
Bahnhof Strasse stretches the length of Old Town from the main train station to the lake. The street is known for the exclusive and expensive shops where shoppers will find items from fur coats and diamonds as well as the two major stores, Jelmoli and Globus, both of which sell extravagant brands. The Botanical Garden contains over 15,000 species of trees and plans along with three million plants such as exotic plants from Africa and New Caledonia.
Zurich has changed from being an ancient historical center to one of Europe’s financial regions. Many of its major sites reflect the religious and art of the city.
