Go visit a badis (public bath), you can spend hours swimming in the rivers and lakes. Lindenhof Hill is the place to go for the views, it’s not hard to climb and the rewards are well worth it.

• Zurich has many faces, and the name can be spelt in many different ways, due to the multi-lingual population. Zurigo (Italian), Zuri (Swiss-German nickname) and Zürich (German). Take your pick.

• If you have muesli while you stay in Zurich, well, the cereal was invented here by nutritionist Max Bircher-Benner.
