Things to do in Zürich
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.
Bischofberger was Jean-Michel Basquiat's European dealer, so it's no surprise to find an exhibition of the artist's collages and paintings.
Sprüngli serves its iconic hamburger shaped Luxemburgerli. The shop also has one of the best deals in Zurich, 10 truffles for $7.
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 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.
Owner Ursula Weber sells beaded necklaces, gold-threaded scarves, embroidered pillows, and other treasures from northern Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
The department store carries a plethora of cool Swiss flag–branded tote bags, diaries, and other paraphernalia.
The museum features a cutting-edge collection of photography, paintings, and design
This gallery, which has satellites in London and New York, represents everyone from sculptor Louise Bourgeois to Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist.
