Zürich is the biggest city in Switzerland, located in the northern part of the country and at the tip of Lake Zurich. For many years, Zurich has been ranked as one of the cities with the highest quality of life in the world. With the alps just in reach on the horizon on a clear day, and a lovely old-town near the lake, it is always a great place to visit!

While it is probably best known for being a financial hub, Zurich is also home to many technology and research endeavors: With three state universities, many tech companies ranging from small startups to large international enterprises, Zurich is a great place for developers and enthusiasts to be in.
