Zürich

Zürich Travel Guide

Bischofberger was Jean-Michel Basquiat's European dealer, so it's no surprise to find an exhibition of the artist's collages and paintings.

Owner Ursula Weber sells beaded necklaces, gold-threaded scarves, embroidered pillows, and other treasures from northern Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

Sprüngli serves its iconic hamburger shaped Luxemburgerli. The shop also has one of the best deals in Zurich, 10 truffles for $7.

Create a lunch to go at this specialty grocer with an excellent wine cellar, a vast gourmet deli, and artful displays of jams, honeys, and chocolates.

Within this 12th-century cathedral the soaring nave is magnificent, and the interior is spare -aside from the jewel-toned chancel windows, designed in 1933 by Augusto Giacometti, Alberto's second cousin.

The department store carries a plethora of cool Swiss flag–branded tote bags, diaries, and other paraphernalia.

The converted brewery is now a complex of art galleries and museums, all located in the edgy Dammweg neighborhood.

The convivial wine bar hosts frequent tastings and the occasional art show. Order a glass of Blauburgunder - what the Swiss call Pinot Noir - and settle in on a window banquette for some people-watching.
