While Zurich isn’t Switzerland’s capital, its self-confidence rivals any major metropolis. Yet at a fraction in size, Zurich’s picture-perfect location along Lake Zurich makes it an alluring city to visit.

Functionality rules here, and much like Swiss ingenuity around keeping time and designing watches, its residents are solution-driven.

Meet the architect designing movable cubicles to optimize office space and the professor modeling tangible solutions for climate change. See how small boutique companies are changing the way Zurich’s residents think about nourishment and energizing employees at work. Get inspired by an artist building an entire community around giving positive energy to others.

It’s here you’ll find one of Europe’s largest skate parks or join other creatives as you embark on a sailing trip. Strolling through the historic Old Town, lush parks and picturesque lanes flanking River Limmat, you’ll experience how the heart of this sustainable Swiss city pulsates on two wheels and beats through its tram tracks.

Prepare to be energized when we visit Zurich in our next issue.
