Big Small Town

The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Old Town and Church of St. Peter. Museum of Art (Kunsthaus Zurich) and Hofkirche are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Zurich: Elsener Messerschmied AG (in Rapperswil), Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona (in Glarus) and Lucerne (Rigi & Chapel Bridge). There's still lots to do: fly down the slopes at Mt Pilatus, get engrossed in the history at Landesmuseum, explore the activities along Lake Zurich, and glide through the air with Paragliding Luzern.

To find traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Zurich trip itinerary planner.
