Most of Zürich's historic and cultural sights lie within the compact area surrounding Storchen Zürich on either side of the River Limmat, between the Hauptbahnhof and Lake Zürich.

Also within strolling distance of the hotel are the city's most impressive churches, the Grossmünster and Fraumünster, as well as the city's oldest, St Peterskirche, which still boasts the largest clock face in Europe.
