Discover Zurich – culture, historic centre and Lake Zurich
Thanks to the central location of the Hotel Krone Unterstrass, you can reach Zurich's sights, attractions and places of excursions in just a few minutes on foot or by public transport. The promenade along the Limmat (the river that runs through Zurich) is just a 5-minute walk away - in summer you will find the "Letten" river pool with its hip restaurants, which invites you to linger, sunbathe and swim, or provides a great backdrop for your jogging route.
