Zurich, Switzerland

Old Town Zurich from the Limmat River

Zurich has an attractive Old Town that runs along the banks of the Limmat, a river connecting to Lake Zurich.  The church in the foreground is the Fraumünster.   The church in the background is St. Peter's, serving the oldest parish in Zurich.  If you are interested in learning more about Zurich, visit the city's official tourism website 

The picture below is of the left bank of the Limmat (as it flows into Lake Zurich).  The tall church is the Grossmünster and occupies a site that has been the home a church since the first millennium.  This photograph is approximately across from the image above.  Although Zurich's Old Town is beautiful, the city is Switzerland's commercial center and is considerably less appealing outside of the city center.
