ETH / University / Lake Zurich

Zurich is located at the northern tip of Lake Zurich and is Switzerland's economic hotspot. The attractive travel, scientific and business location as well as the multicultural atmosphere attract guests from all over the world to visit the Zwinglistadt, which boasts over 50 museums and more than 100 galleries, international labels and Switzerland's most vibrant nightlife.

With over 26,000 students, the University of Zurich, which was founded in 1833, is the largest of the ten Swiss universities. As a comprehensive university with over 150 schools, departments and clinics, it houses all the traditional faculties.

From Central, the Polybahn, a narrow-gauge funicular, carries passengers up to the Poly terrace and to ETH Zurich (formerly called Polytechnikum), which has produced 21 Nobel laureates so far.

Zurich-Enge is a quarter at the left shore of Lake Zurich - located between parks, moraine hills and Lake Zurich. With Wollishofen and Leimbach, it forms the Zurich district 2. Popular sights are the Enge church, the Rietberg museum in the Rieter Park and the succulents collection at the Mythenquai.
