Zurich - Leisure, Entertainment & Sports

In recent years, Zurich has been working to eradicate its somewhat staid work reputation by injecting back a series of festivals in Zurich. There is a once in every three years Zürifäscht, for example, attracts more than 2 million party-goers to Zurich, that, on a normal day, has a population of 1.27 million in its entire Canton. Other local festivals are the Fasnacht, Sechselaueten and Knabenchiessen, and of course, the Street Parade (one of the world's largest house and techno party). Around Christmas season, Europe's largest indoor Christmas market takes place at Zurich's main train station.

Since the 1990s, Zurich's nightlife has been injected with the opening of new restaurants, clubs and bars, and its former industrial quarters (Zuri-West) today cater to the younger crowd. There are plenty of recreational choices for the expatriate.

Many expatriates living in Zurich also take the opportunity to travel to other parts of Europe, even on weekends just for a quick getaway.
