Botanical Garden of the University of Zurich

Crowning the picture-perfect Weinegg Quarter, this university garden is enlivened by a vivid tapestry of botanical wonders. It is an integral part of the Institute of Systematic Botany. Constructed across its verdant meadows are bubble-style greenhouses, bountiful harbors of plants which lovingly call to mind the clear weather and vibrant landscapes of the Mediterranean and the Tropics. Come spring, the garden comes alive with a burst of mesmerizing blooms while droves of frogs croon into its glimmering pond. From alpine roses and water plants to native European and primitive species, the garden strives to be an embodiment of both research and recreation, creating a gardenscape which is a spectacular feast for the senses.

Grossmünster

A venerated cathedral made memorable by its imposing twin towers, Grossmünster is among the best-known landmarks in Zurich. Construction on the Romanesque-style structure began in the early 12th Century and continued for roughly 110 years. Legend reckons that the church was built as a monastery on the graves of Zurich's patron saints Felix and Regula and today proudly stands guard over the city and its spectacular landscape. Other significant architectural features apart from the towers include magnificent bronze doors, an 11th-century crypt, and grotesque-ornamented capitals that top the medieval columns of the grand south portal. Besides its architectural glory, the Grossmünster is also revered for its historical significance as the site where religious leader Huldrych Zwingli launched the Protestant Reformation in Switzerland during the 16th Century. The cathedral has since witnessed a handful of modifications, such as the stained-glass windows added in 1932 by Augusto Giacometti.

Fraumünster

Once an all-women abbey for those of aristocratic lineage, the Fraumünster Church commands dignity and a place of pride in Zurich. Perhaps one of the most striking features of this church is the troupe of magnificent, diversely colored stained glass windows crafted by renowned artists Marc Chagall and Augusto Giacometti. Another such recognizable gem of the church is its soaring tower, which was built in 1732, standing today in stark contrast to the twin towers of the nearby Grossmünster. This Gothic-Romanesque church also features an ornate nave, a Romanesque chancel, and exquisite frescoes which are but an escape into the church's storied past. Topped by a gleaming teal cap, this church proudly graces the heart of Zurich's old town.

Rietberg Museum

A bevy of cultural experiences are to be found in this old villa, on top of a little hill in a park. On different floors, Rietberg Museum shows art from India, Southeast Asia, China, Tibet, Japan, Africa, Oceania, America, and Switzerland. Displays contain objects like statues of Shiva and other gods and goddesses, wooden dolls, masks and other artifacts. The admission prices for temporary exhibits differ from the normal rates. Get caught up in the world of the past and pay a visit to this magical museum.

Zoological Museum

One of the best things about Zurich being a university town is that the university has several free museums. The Zoological Museum is the main attraction, not only because of the microscope tables, furry games and video projections, the giant giraffe and stuffed birds. No, the best attraction is getting there! A Polybahn which is accessible from the tram station Central, brings you to the terrace where many of the university buildings are found. This beautifully restored, antique mode of transport is a special treat for children of all ages.

Kunsthalle Zürich

Located in the Löwenbräu area, the Kunsthalle Zürich exhibits contemporary art works of various artistes throughout the year. Beginners as well as professionals from all parts of the world take pride in putting up their paintings, sketches and photographs on the Kunsthalle forum. International celebrities, such as Isa Genzken, Anselm Reyle and Sarah Morris have held shows at this premier venue in the past. As a rule though, this museum displays only one artist's creations at a time.
