The word Switzerland conjures up many images in the mind. From a sleek centre of international financial institutions to the Alpine playground of Europe's best skiers, the country is wonderfully evocative. The picturesque romance of a hilltop village is another image that for many typifies the Swiss ideal, and this is perfectly captured at Regensberg.
Like Zurich Airport, the delightful village of Regensberg can be found to the north of Switzerland's largest city. This means that visitors staying at the Radisson Blu Hotel Zurich Airport can drive to the attractive village in around twenty minutes. The comfortable Zurich Airport hotel is perfectly placed for excursions to the charming little settlement.
An undiscovered jewel
With winding medieval streets and an impressive hilltop fort, the sight of the lush, leafy streets of Regensberg is enough to fire the imagination. The approach to the village is worth making the trip for but getting in amongst the ancient architecture of the tiny hamlet reveals no shortage of rewarding sights.
After exploring the tiny streets it is possible to climb the tower that dominates the skyline of the hilltop village. From this advantageous position the whole of Regensberg and the surrounding landscape is visible. The stunning panoramic views make it clear why the builders of the fort chose the defensive location back in the 13th century.
Zurich's beautiful surroundings
Regensberg is just one of the many excellent attractions that surround Zurich. The city is surrounded by sites of outstanding natural beauty that offer fantastic opportunities to appreciate the Swiss landscape. In addition to Regensberg, visitors will find that the Uetliberg Mountain is also a site of great splendour.
After spending some time exploring the Swiss countryside around Zurich, and the tiny streets of Regensberg, visitors will find that the Radisson Blu Hotel Zurich Airport offers exceptional, and easily accessible, accommodation. The first rate hotel is a top choice for visitors who want to expand their horizons and experience rural Switzerland.
