A complicated clock, an elephant in the woods, the emperor's paddle steamer, and the first "Dark Restaurant." There is obviously more to Zurich than banking, clean streets, and punctuality. This guide shows a very different side to Switzerland's largest city. Published by The Urban Explorer these city tales from new and unusual perspectives provide independent travelers with unforgettable memories. Ideal for those who want to escape the crowds and get beyond the well-known paths, as well as for those inhabitants who perhaps thought they already knew their city. Eccentric museums, secret gardens, iconic structures, idiosyncratic shops, colorful characters and unusual places of worship.
