The financial hub of Switzerland, Zurich is most often associated with money and banks.
Get some historical perspective at Old Town and Kloster Einsiedeln. Fondation Beyeler and Glasi Hergiswil will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Zurich: Pilatus Luzern (in Kriens), Rapperswil (Wooden Bridge from Rapperswil to Hurden & Capuchin Friary) and Old Town Chur (in Chur). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Limmatquai, see the interesting displays at Zoological Museum, explore the world behind art at Jean Tinguely Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fraumünster Church.
