Zurich stands near a lake with the same name and has a great public transport system. And the biggest chinese garden outside China.
Travel through time — and water
The Old City is emblematic, especially on the Niederdorf area. Close by are the grandiose Grossmünster and Fraumünster churches. After seeing the views from mountain Uetliberg, there’s the boat trip on the lake and river Limmat. You might even end up going to see the breathtaking Rhine Falls.
Good shopping means heading to Bahnhofstrasse. You won’t resist the chocolats of Sprüngli, a house founded in 1836. Mind also the Swiss National Museum, an enchanted castle, and Kunsthaus’ great European collection. Don’t forget to spend a night at the casino. And then, drinks at the trendy district of Zürich-West!
