It is a pretty nice city at the north-west end of the lake Zürich. It has good transportation, food, education, healthcare and a stable job market. The language spoken here is a dialect of high German called "Züritüütsch". Even some people from Germany have trouble understanding it :P

It is the birthplace of dadaism and the famous german scientist Albert Einstein was a graduate and professor at the ETH Zürich.

Currently 23,2% of the population is foreign. Mostly Germans, Italians and Serbs.

An overpriced city with to many chocolate stores.
- Wow Zurich is just way to expensive!
