Zurich has become a global banking and financial center and lies north of Lake Zurich in northern Switzerland. The picturesque avenues of the central Altstadt (old town) reflect its medieval history on either side of the Limago River. Waterfront promenades, such as the Limmatquai, follow the river towards the 17th century Rathaus town hall.
