The city of Zurich is known for its artworks, cultural history and diversity of museums and art exhibitions. The top museums in Zurich impress with their architecture and design and appeal to different interests. Those who love art and culture will definitely feel at home in the city. Of even greater interest is that the city itself has a long tradition, which is also reflected in every detail. Thus, over 1000 works and sculptures can be found in the city (outside of museums)
