Zürich

Zürich Travel Guide

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.

The museum features a cutting-edge collection of photography, paintings, and design

Le Corbusier's last building - a glass-and-steel structure that looks like a Mondrian painting in 3-D - has now been transformed into a museum. Completed after his death in 1965, it's now named after the patron who commissioned it. It houses Le Corbusier's sketches, lithographs, and writings.

This gallery, which has satellites in London and New York, represents everyone from sculptor Louise Bourgeois to Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist.
