Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland and is the financial centre of the country which houses the stock exchange and many international companies. The city is perfectly located for people on a winter Zürich city break as the city is within a close distance to tourist resorts in the Swiss Alps.
Marvel at the panoramic view of the city, lake and snow-covered mountains from the Uetliberg, Zurich's local mountain.
Take the Polybahn, a 19th century funicular, up the steep hill for a fine view and sip a cup of coffee on the lovely terrace perched on top of the hill.
