Top-quality, pleasant-tasting drinking water flows from the city's water taps, as well as from its 1,200 public fountains.

The highlights of Zurich’s event calendar include the Street Parade, the Zurich Festival, open-air concerts and cinemas in summer, the Weltklasse Zurich (track & field meeting) and New Year’s Eve Magic organized by Zurich’s hoteliers. #VisitZurich
