Zurich is Switzerland’s largest city and home to many of its key financial and commercial centres, as well as many of its most important cultural institutions. This modern, cosmopolitan destination is famous for a high standard of living, undoubtedly helped by its proximity to the stunning landscape of the Swiss Alps. Zurich is filled with amazing cultural landmarks and historical monuments, many of which can be explored in the city’s picturesque Old Town, making it a fascinating destination for intrepid tourists as well as business travellers.
Perth Airport, Australia’s fourth busiest airport, serves the west of the continent and links passengers to destinations all over the world.
Qatar Airways flights from Perth regularly travel to Doha, making this a convenient departure point for both business and leisure travellers.
The typically laid-back Australian nature makes this a very friendly airport too, with helpful staff available throughout.
Parking and transportation
Perth Airport is very business-focused, providing plenty of parking and easy transportation to, and from, the city of Perth for business users.
Long-term parking is just 10 minutes away from the International Terminal 1, and a shuttle bus runs every few minutes from the parking area to the terminal. Both short and long-term parking areas are patrolled by 24-hour security.
The Perth Airport Connect shuttle bus runs from East Perth train station, and other locations in the city, to Terminal 3. International travellers can then connect with a shuttle bus service to take them to Terminal 1. Covered taxi ranks are located outside the main entrance to the terminal.
Arriving in Perth
Qatar Airways flights from Perth leave from International Terminal 1. The terminal has a number of lounges (some of which are airline-specific). Security is tight in Australia, so ensure that you do not have any banned items in your handbags and carry-on luggage to avoid delays.
Facilities and amenities
Wi-Fi is available throughout Terminal 1 (note that there may be some not-spots in areas close to ongoing construction). There are a number of retail outlets in Terminal 1, including duty-free shops and others that offer Australian goods – ideal for buying last-minute souvenirs.
A food court provides passengers with a selection of light bites, snacks, drinks and substantial meals with an international flavour.
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.
