Zürich – voted as one of the most liveable cities in the world
(Monocle & Mercer)
Zürich (https://www.zuerich.com/en) is a cosmopolitan city in the heart of Switzerland, offering you a lot to do on a city break, while being well-connected to nature at the same time. Set at the meting of river and lake, Zürich offers you beautiful public spaces to relax in and explore, while having a stunning historical old town as well as modern and trendy bars, clubs and much more to enjoy. (https://www.lonelyplanet.com/switzerland/zurich) Zürich is the biggest city in Switzerland with a population of approximately 440’000 people. It has been established over 2000 years ago by the Romans and has also played an important role in more modern history, being the centre of Protestantism under Ludwig Zwingli in 1519. Zürich is a focal point for railways, roads, and air traffic within the centre of Europe. Zürich Airport and the railway station are the largest and busiest in the Switzerland. Geographically, the Canton of Zürich is situated at the centre of Europe, four hours by TGV to Paris, just over three hours to Milano and a six/seven-hour drive to the French Riviera. You can ski less than a 30-minute drive from Zürich and are a one-hour train ride to the beautiful city of Luzern. Not to mention all the wonderful and famous ski resorts a short scenic drive away,
There is something for everybody here: museums and churches like the “Kunsthaus” and “Fraumünster” for those who like some history, to a zoo and botanical garden for those who want to learn more about nature, to old factories turned into cultural centres and creative living spaces.
In Zürich-West, the city’s heart beats at night and on the weekends with its many clubs and bars. A personal tip, in the observatory tower just off the main shopping road “Bahnhofstrasse” the stylish small bar “Jules Verne Panoramabar” (https://www.jules-verne.ch/) with excellent cocktails and amazing views awaits you. The entrance through the French bistro downstairs makes it even more special and feels like a well-kept secret. So whatever you are looking for, Zürich will not disappoint.
Keep Healthy While Travelling – Fitness and Nutrition
You’ve worked hard on your exercise routine and a holiday is no excuse to let those good habits slide! While you’re on the road, there are some easy steps you can take to keep your health at its best.
In Zürich there is an abundance of spas and gyms, that may be overwhelming. We recommend Airyoga (https://www.airyoga.ch/) and YogaNation (https://yoganation.ch/), both in the beautiful Bellevue district. It can be useful to do some research before your trip to scope out some parks near your hotel to squeeze in a run. Exploring the city by foot is also a great way to include exercise into your day! Taking a run in the beautiful city, the obvious choice may be along lake Zürich (Zürichsee). Other options with stunning views are around the Adlisberg mountain and Dolder area, giving you some extra headspace to gather your thoughts.
Look at some good and health restaurants before your trip so you have a few options at hand when you get hungry.

They have a beautiful roof terrace restaurant on the Bahnhofstrasse so there is really nothing easier than sticking to your healthy diet in such a beautiful environment.
