has been settled in some form for 7,000 years. After the fall of Rome, it was governed by a powerful abbess and today has significant influence in the financial world. It is colloquially referred to as “Downtown Switzerland” most likely because of its essential role in the Swiss economy and government. If you are looking to find hotel
or hostel accommodation
while in Zurich, look in district 1, commonly known as Altstadt. This is where the old city used to be and is where you will find Lindenhof—the old site of the Zurich Roman Castle and later the Carolingian Imperial Palace, the Grossmunster, Franmunster and St. Peter’s Cathedral. The city of Zurich is considered to have one of the highest standards of living and is one of the healthiest places to live in Europe. It is no wonder that hotels and hostels are usually difficult to secure.
