The fact that Zurich is especially popular with tourists and incomers from other Swiss areas and also from abroad is not only proven by several statistics, but also by the awards the city has won and the magazines that regularly praise it for its quality of life. Convince yourself why Zurich is also especially attractive as a film location.
Where else can you catch the urban big city feeling with all of its shades varying between its unsophisticated conventional side, urban hedonism, the sometimes sadness of agglomeration or the rural picture book romanticism within the shortest time. Furthermore, the city of Zurich offers an incredible broad range of possibilities to include juicy subsidiary locations: we can provide you everything from economic worlds, to the cultural life of every colour and size and up to all socio-demographic groups relevant to you. So let’s face it, which other city that supplies such a variety is situated on a lake, has two rivers running through it and an international airport hub only 15 minutes away from the city centre?
We also fancy our diverse canton. You can find countless spots with an excellent distant view where you will catch sight of lakes and majestic snowy mountain chains. In the north is the sparsely populated Zurich wine country that is keeping its rural character. So does the pre-alpine Zurich highlands (Zurich Oberland) in the southeast of the canton. In the west you can find the Zurich lowlands (Zurich Unterland), where little places like Wehntal or Rafzerfeld are situated even beyond the inner agglomeration of the city. Zurich incorporates everything the filmmaker’s heart desires: city, countryside and agglomeration in all characteristics.
