Zurich's nightlife is considered as one of the best in the whole of Europe.
Don't let its appearance deceive you: this calm and peaceful city transforms into an unbeatable enclave at night for a good party. Perhaps it comes as a surprise but Zurich enjoys a great nightlife, so it's no wonder that it's considered as one of the liveliest in the whole of Europe, thanks to its large number of bars, pubs, and nightclubs. It's best to start the evening on the streets of Niederdorfstrasse and Oberdorfstrasse, where you'll find interesting options for dinner, and the first drink of the night. There are many busy spots hidden in the city which are visited until the small hours of the morning, but perhaps the best option is to pass through a place called Langstrasse, that was formerly known as the red light district, and has been reconverted into one of the liveliest streets for enjoying the Swiss nightlife. Partly due to its young atmosphere, the city of Zurich is known as the mecca of techno music.
