In the year 15 BC, the Roman customs post "Turicum" (Zurich's old Roman name) was
founded. Zurich received its town charter in the 10th century. Rudolf Brun toppled the town
council in 1336, upon which a guild constitution was introduced. Shortly thereafter in 1351,
Zurich joined the Helvetic Confederation. In 1519, Huldrych Zwingli started the Reformation.
The 19th century saw the rise of Zurich as the financial and economic center of Switzerland.

Zurich offers more than 50 museums and over 100 galleries, cultural institutions of worldwide
renown such as the Opera House, the Schauspielhaus (Switzerland’s largest theater), the
Tonhalle (Concert Hall), and more. Zurich is also an ideal starting point for visiting other
Swiss cities (< 1h to Bern, Basel and Luzern) and for tours to the Swiss Alps.
