Only in Zurich

A Guide to Unique Locations, Hidden Corners, Unusual Objects


Discover there's more to Zurich than just banking, clean streets and punctuality. This popular explorer's guide shows a very different side to Switzerland's largest city. More than 100 fascinating and unusual historical sites, including ancient walls and secret gardens, curious museums and converted factories, idiosyncratic shops and literary landscapes. From Roman Turicum and the Old Swiss Confederacy to the Helvetic Republic and the Industrial Revolution. Locations include the home of FIFA, the emperor's paddle steamer, an elephant in the woods, Lenin's favourite cafe and the original 'Dark Restaurant'.

Set off on your own urban expedition with the Only In Guides! These ground breaking city guides are for independent cultural travellers wishing to escape the crowds and locals keen to learn more about where they live. Unique locations, hidden corners and unusual objects.
