About Old Town (Altstadt)

Steeped in history and packed with a whole lot of sightseeing and shopping, Altstadt is the oldest part of the city and among the best tourist places in Zurich. The Roman Empire of Zurich came into being in the Old Town which makes this attraction more than 2000 years old.

Resplendent with archaic architecture and boasting of Zürich's heritage, today the Old Town is known for some of the best attractions, shopping and dining destinations in the city. With the Limmat River flowing through the centre of the town, guild houses, churches and historic places line the quaint little streets.

Largely divided into four quadrants,Medieval houses, Renaissance buildings and narrow lanes make up the Old Town. The crowd and the happy vibes that make their way through the streets of the Old Town are definitely worth looking forward to on your visit.
