Old Town Zurich (Alstadt)

Old Town Zurich

This is the medieval part of a town that looks very modern from the outside. Wander the twisting cobblestone alleys that lead you to several other Zurich attractions such as the Great Minister, Museum of Art, and Swiss National Museum.

Make sure you take time to go by the Muhlesteg Footbridge. The railings are laden with an array of colorful locks that have names and dates on them.

If you enjoy the nightlife, then this is a great area to visit after the sun has gone down. Old Town has the highest concentration of clubs in Switzerland so there is something for everyone.
