Quality of life
Zurich has one of the best rankings in the world for quality of life. Important feel-good factors are safety, prosperity and the genuine openness of the population.
Quality of life in Zurich? The Bahnhofstrasse with its sophisticated shops comes immediately to mind. However, quality of life is not just about prosperity and shopping – it begins with the basic things in life, such as safety for example. No one wants to live in a city in which freedom of movement is restricted, and in contrast to other global cities, Zurich simply does not have any dangerous areas. Children can walk safely to their kindergartens or schools in Zurich unaccompanied by adults. The crime rate is very low in comparison with international levels and Zurich's streets are safe and clean – around the clock.
