Local Attractions

Zurich Opera House
The Zürich Opera House was the first opera house in all of Europe that had electric lighting. The neo-baroque theater building in front of the Sechseläuten green space on the shore of Lake Zürich was built in 1891 upon 1,800 oak piles. The first opera performed there was Richard Wagner’s Lohengrin. The Zürich Opera House is considered one of the finest venues in the world for opera.

Augustinergasse
One of Zürich’s most beautiful old, narrow streets with its many colorfully painted oriel windows, Augustinergasse connects bustling Bahnhofstrasse with the St. Peterhofstatt oasis in the picturesque Old Town. Among other things, the oriels were a way to keep an eye on who came to the door and so they were never situated directly over the front door, but rather built just to the side.

Bahnhofstrasse
The world-famous shopping precinct Bahnhofstrasse was created following the construction of Zürich Main Station on the very site where 150 years ago the city’s fortified moat was located. It connects Zürich’s Main Station to Lake Zürich. Here, department stores, boutiques, and jewelry shops are strung together like pearls on a chain.

Grossmuenster
The twin towers of this attractive cathedral have become a cultural symbol for the city of Zürich, and the building itself comprises a diverse set of design influences, from an 11th-century crypt to a stained glass window by avant-garde artist Sigmar Polke. The cathedral played an integral role in the Protestant Reformation, and the movement's legacy accounts for the relatively unostentatious interior. Recent archaeological discoveries suggest the existence of a Roman cemetery underneath the church.
