The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
When in Zurich, make a side trip to see Rhine Falls in Neuhausen am Rheinfall, approximately Neuhausen am Rheinfall away. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Zurich, take a stroll through Bahnhofstrasse, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Grossmunster, and visit Old Town.
