Zurich
The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Step out of the city life by going to Lake Zurich and Mt Pilatus. Explore hidden gems such as Lake Brienz and Altstadt-Spaziergange durch Basel. Get out of town with these interesting Zurich side-trips: Tinguely-Brunnen (in Basel), Meiringen (Aare Gorge & Reichenbach Falls) and Lucerne (Lake Lucerne, Dying Lion of Lucerne Monument, & more). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Old Town (Altstadt), see the interesting displays at Ballenberg, Swiss Open-Air Museum, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and appreciate the views at Lac de Claus.
