There are a lot of place to see in Switzerland. Excursion with private guide in Bern. We start our country discovering from one of the biggest and famous city, financial capital of Switzerland - Zürich. Before we start our 3 hours city tour - just short historical introduction.
Zurich's origins date back as long ago as 15BC, when the Roman post of Turicum was founded as a customs station to oversee goods travelling to and from Italy. Despite the settlement being continuously inhabited, it wasn't until the 9th century that the first mention of the Teutonic town of Zurich appeared. By the 10th century, the town had acquired the status of a city, and went on to become the centre of the Swiss Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. The motto 'pray and work' was to have a profound effect on the shaping of the city, which, by the 19th century, had grown into the commercial and financial centre of Switzerland.
Today, most of Zurich's sights lie within the compact area on either side of the River Limmat, between the Hauptbahnhof and Lake Zurich. Tour in Bern. The churches and burgher houses of the Old Town are clustered here, as are the elegant shops of Bahnhofstrasse. Also within strolling distance of the river are the city's most impressive churches - the Grossmünster and Fraumünster - as well as the city's oldest, St Peterskirche, which still boasts the largest clock face in Europe.
The city also has the full gamut of museums, from art galleries and design forums to archaeology collections and ethnographic museums You will see the castle-like National Museum, the shopping and business center on Bahnhofstrasse, the Limmatquai with its medieval Old Town and view to the Lindenhof, where the brave women of Zurich saved the city from the invaders, the largest church clock-face of Europe on St. Peter, the patriarchal Guild Houses, the Opera house with its famous June-Festivals and of course the Zürich lake.
