What to do in Zurich
Some lovely must-see historical sites are located in Zurich's old town. People interested in historical churches should check out Grossmünster and Fraumünster. Excellent museums include Landesmuseum, the Rietberg Museum, the Museum Buehrle and the Jacob Coffee Museum. One particularly unusual place to visit is Langstrasse, the red light district of Zurich. To get a great view of the city, take the Polybahn up the hill, take a cruise on the Zürichsee on a steam boat or hike up Uetliberg. Zurich has the most nightclubs per capita on the continent, so if you want to experience the nightlife, make sure to go club-hopping. Zurich has several interesting theaters, so if you're in the mood for a show, check out Rote Fabrik, Theater am Neumarkt, Schauspielhaus and Opernhaus.
