Welcome to Zürich

Culturally vibrant, efficiently run and attractively set at the meeting of river and lake, Zürich is regularly recognised as one of the world’s most liveable cities. Long known as a savvy, hard-working financial centre, Switzerland’s largest and wealthiest metropolis has also emerged in the 21st century as one of central Europe’s hippest destinations, with an artsy, post-industrial edge that is epitomised in its exuberant summer Street Parade.

Much of the ancient centre, with its winding lanes and tall church steeples, has been kept lovingly intact. Yet Zürich has also wholeheartedly embraced contemporary trends, with the conversion of old factories into cultural centres and creative new living spaces. Nowhere is that clearer than in Züri-West, the epicentre of the city’s nightlife.


The Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute GDI

When Gottlieb Duttweiler founded the GDI over 50 years ago, he created a place for reflection and encounters. Today the Institute is one of Switzerland’s leading think tanks. Intellectual trailblazers come here from around the world to hone their ideas for the future. GDI is the ideal event location for the forum as it offers excellent facilities away from the hustle and bustle of the city, a mind stimulating environment set against relaxed, picturesque parkland and overlooking Lake Zurich. EURUS forum delegates are bound to benefit from this uniquely creative atmosphere.
