    Car Hire Zurich

    Zurich Car HireLocated in north-central Switzerland, Zurich is not only the country's largest city but also its cultural and financial centre. During your time in Zurich, make sure to pay a visit to St. Peter's Church. Dating back to the 8th or 9th century, this church has been rebuilt numerous times with varying architectural styles, providing a distinct appearance, most notably for its clock tower which has the largest clock face in the world. Don't miss a tour of the Künsthaus Zurich (Zurich Art Museum), with a collection spanning from the Middle Ages up through contemporary art. The museum hosts numerous travelling exhibitions, as well as an extensive permanent collection.

    While here, visit Rapperswil, a town just outside of Zurich known for its rose gardens, castle and many lake-side restaurants in the quaint old town. Additionally, make a day trip to see Rheinfall, the largest waterfall in Europe. If you've ventured to Switzerland to ski, check out Flumserberg, a famous ski resort offering 65km of skiing options with a peak altitude of 2222 metres.
