You probably know Zurich as the place where spies stash all their cash or meet bankers and exchange Swiss bank account numbers. But Zurich actually has a lot to offer the visitor not after a new bank account.
Water is everywhere in Switzerland and Zurich is no exception. It has the Limmat river running right through the center and Lake Zurich too. So, if you come in summer, bring your bathing gear because everyone is either at the lake or in the river, and BBQing!
Best Time to Visit:
The months of July and August see pleasantly warm weather and are the most popular months to visit.
Zurich is in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, But the language you’ll hear in Zurich is Zurich German, a local dialect of Swiss German. English is widely spoken, particularly among people in industries catering to tourists.

Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, so it does not use the euro as currency
