Zurich is Switzerland’s largest and wealthiest metropolis, and enjoys a beautiful natural setting on a picture-perfect lake surrounded by mountains. Lake Zurich is the real draw of this beautiful city, whether you enjoy a leisurely stroll down its green banks, a boat cruise on the water, or just eating in one of the fine restaurants on the shore while enjoying an incredible view. Another essential area of Zurich is the Old Town, where visitors can wander into countless shops, cafés, and museums to get a real feel for Swiss culture.

Visit the Swiss National Museum to see a display of the country’s history from its origins to the present day. It’s got everything from art, to archaeology, to a famous Christmas exhibition, so it’s definitely worth a visit. Before you leave Zurich, make your way up to Üetliberg by hiking or taking a train from the city to get an incredible panoramic view of Zurich and the lake.
