If you gaze out of your window as you fly into Zurich, you will find little indication that this was once a Roman stronghold. Established around 15 B.C., the military base of Turicum, later known as Zurich in a colloquial interpretation of the Latin name, lies nestled between wooded hills with stunning views of the Alps, a now sprawling city on the shores of Lake Zurich that has become a modern playground for the rich and famous.

At the far end of Bahnhofstrasse lies the central station, and while shopping may be top of the list for a Zurich, Switzerland getaway, a soothing sojourn at Baur au Lac may be just the tonic to inspire an excursion. Perhaps to Schipfen, a historic quarter where artisans offer wares and instruction, or Fraumünster, an ancient convent.
