The Zurich region is the economic centre of Switzerland. Thanks to the strong presence of international companies that benefit from the exceptionally favourable location factors: The densest public transport network in the world, countless direct flights to destinations around the globe, reputable education institutions such as the University of Zurich, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and IBM Lab. In addition, Zurich and the region around Lake Zurich offer culture and art collections of world renown. Preserved nature, clean lakes and rivers, rolling hills, dense forests and mountains, picturesque villages - and all just a stone's throw from the Alps. The Zurich metropolitan region is an ideal starting point for varied excursions - and provides a globally unique quality of life.
The lakeside discovery metropolis with views of the snowcapped Alps on the horizon offers a unique mix: over 50 museums and more than 100 galleries, international shops and urban Zurich labels, the liveliest nightlife in Switzerland, countless lake and river swimming spots in the town centre as well as hiking and biking opportunities on the local mountain Uetliberg. In Zurich, the highest level is standard - Zurich regularly wins awards as the city with the world's best quality of life for a reason.
