The modern city of Zurich is the financial centre of Switzerland and its largest city. Home to important European business institutions and Swiss Banks, this central destination is perhaps most famous for its role as an economic hub. However, there’s much more to Zurich than finance and business, and this lakeside city is both picturesque and steeped in culture. Zurich is also close to the Alps, making it the ideal stepping off point for an amazing skiing holiday.
Opened in 1998, Kuala Lumpur International Airport has quickly gained a reputation as an efficient, friendly and pleasant start to any international journey.
The airport was voted to have the World’s Best Immigration Service in the 2013 Skytrax World Airport Awards. Qatar Airways flights from Kuala Lumpur connect to destinations all over the world, making this an important international hub and a key part of our network of departure points in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Plaza Premium Lounge is open to all customers, and there are also private lounges that can be rented by the hour.

A glorious mountain backdrop and the shores of Lake Zurich right on the doorstep – the capital of Switzerland is one of the prettiest destinations in Europe, filled with charm and natural beauty that is complemented by the well-preserved medieval city.
But alongside this is a centre focused on commerce, finance and innovation, making this one of the most modern and forward-looking cities in the world.
Book a flight to Zurich with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a city where old and new sit comfortably side by side, and there are surprises down every beautifully cobbled, medieval alleyway.
And if you tire of city life then you are just a few miles from some of the finest hiking, skiing and trekking country in Europe, making it an all-year destination that’s perfect for city breaks and adventure holidays.
Most of the popular tourist attractions are clustered around the Old Town and the riverfront and lakeshore. The lake itself is one of the biggest attractions in the city, and the Lakeside Promenade is incredibly popular, especially in the summer.
Starting from Bellevue, the boardwalk goes for about 3km along the lake towards Tiefenbrunnen, making it a relaxing and tranquil walk for all ages.
Switzerland is famous for its premium quality watches, and you can find out all about this unique industry at the Bayer Museum.
This museum has exhibitions of watches dating back hundreds of years, with some of the rarest and most beautiful examples of the watchmaker’s craft on display.
Zurich is filled with fine art galleries and museums, and one of the best is the Kunsthaus, which has dedicated exhibitions to Swiss artists including the modern sculptor Giacometti, and surrealist 18th Century painter Fuseli.
At the Rietberg Museum you’ll be able to see one of Europe’s best collections of Asian art, and if you need a good cup of coffee after all that exploring then head to the Jacob Coffee Museum, which charts the evolution of coffee and the European passion for the drink.
