As you stroll through the Old Town, you will enjoy a stop by the stunning St. Peter’s Church, a Romanesque-gothic-baroque church built on remains of former churches from before the 9th century. You’ll have an opportunity to take photos from outside and admire the exterior of this fascinating historic church.

You will stop at the Sprüngli, the oldest Chocolatier in town, and view it from the outside while your guide shares the history of the place with you.

Accessibility Description:

I gave the Essential Old Town Zurich Wheelchair Accessible Tour a 3 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it includes step-free routes and is primarily flat. It also includes accessible bathrooms along the route. It did not get a higher rating because the tour participants will need to walk/roll along the route rather than drive, and there are several parts with mild to moderate cobblestones. Due to the nature of the city’s layout, you will encounter mild slopes as well.

Some streets along the route have mild slopes to them.

Cobblestones lead uphill to St. Peters church (see photo on the left below). Bahnhofstrasse street is flat (see photo on the right).

Accessible public toilets will be available along the route.
